Black Teen Designs Her Prom Dress Inspired by Prince and Frog Disney Movie

Layla Hildreth

Nationwide — Layla Hildreth, an African American high school senior from Irondale, Alabama, designed her own prom dress, drawing inspiration from Princess Tiana, the beloved character from Disney’s The Princess and the Frog.

“It’s more than just the dress,” Layla told WDBJ7. “She was a big star in her moments; she was very inspirational.”

Layla expressed her admiration for Princess Tiana’s work ethic and how she never wavered in pursuit of her dreams.

“The way that she carried herself, the way that she never gave up, and I feel like the dress really shows how big of a person she is,” she said.

With determination in her heart, Layla encouraged others not to let anyone dictate their dreams. She said, “Don’t let anybody tell you what you can and cannot do.”

After countless hours of hard work and dedication, Layla feels like a princess wearing her own creation. She brought her vision to life, creating a dress fit for a modern-day princess.

As she prepares to embark on her next journey at Georgia State University in the fall, she plans to continue nurturing her creative spirit and pursuing her dreams.
