While most prom dresses utilize hundreds of rhinestones and jewels to make a statement, the images on 17 year-old Milan Bolden-Morris's gown outshone them all.

Milan wore a Black Lives Matter prom dress, showing the pictures of 15 Black victims of police brutality merged together across her gown, with Trayvon Martin's face most prominently featured.

The train also had the faces of Sandra Bland, Michael Brown, and Tamir Rice.

"Yes I'm black. Yes I'm 17. Yes GOD is using me to convey a message that's bigger than me," Bolden-Harris said in her Instagram post.

The gown was designed by Terrence Torrence, who has also designed pieces for Nicki Minaj and Lil Kim.

The Atlanta and Florida-based designer was inspired by the countless Black deaths by police brutality to create the dress. It was made over the course of four days for the Florida teen. Morris loved the result, and said the designer's "message is a huge issue in America today," in an interview with Essence.

"With all the killings that [were] going on, it just hit me one day: You should put that into a dress," Torrence told CNN. "I wanted to paint a picture and put a story out there through my fashion, and I wanted to show we could spread out message with not just posters and fliers but also with garments."

Fashion can be used as a vehicle for spreading social change; this dress is a stunning example.

Here's a close-up video of the custom-created fabric.

This dress is proof that a picture is worth a thousand words. Bravo, Terrence — and bravo, Milan!
