EAST ORANGE, NJ - An aspiring fashion designer and a veteran television star from East Orange made a huge splash at the BET Awards on Sunday evening.
Kyemah McEntyre, the Cicely L. Tyson Community School of Performing & Fine Arts senior who recently ‘broke the internet’ with her Afro-centric prom dress, is poised to go viral again with a creation she designed for Naturi Naughton (another rising star from East Orange).
Naturi, co-star of the Starz hit Power, "stole the show" when she showed up in a dress created by Kyemah during the 2015 BET Awards Red Carpet Event.
Kyemah, an aspiring fashion designer, recently posted a creation she made for herself to wear to her prom that "broke the internet," inspiring countless youths to follow their dreams while catapulting her to prom queen to boot. Kyemah hopes to attend Parsons the New School for Design in the fall.
Many local residents remember Naturi for her musical talent. As early as age of 5, she joined her church youth choir at New Hope Baptist Church in East Orange. She has gone on from those humble beginnings to performing as one-third of the former R&B trio 3LW and roles in Fame, Notorious, and The Playboy Club. Naughton was a series regular in season one of the Lifetime television drama series "The Client List" as Kendra and currently stars in the Starz drama, Power as Tasha St. Patrick.
