Boy, 16, celebrated by classmates after attending Prom in stunning gown
Korben White left his classmates in awe with his gorgeous prom outfit inspired by Billy Porter’s 2019 Oscars look.
The teenager, 16, from Norfolk, donned a red sparkling tuxedo dress at his recent prom, and was met with cheers by his fellow pupils upon arrival.
Pictures shared by his mum went viral online after she posted them on her social media, soon receiving an incredible reaction.
On Thursday, Korben appeared on This Morning with his mum Nina to chat about the reception his gown received, alongside hosts Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary.
Korben told the pair: ‘I’ve always been feminine. Dressing up in my cousins’ dresses, playing with Barbies… I just knew I wanted to wear a dress when it came to prom.’
His mum explained how they felt in the lead up to his big day, and why she felt it so important to sort an outfit which perfectly reflected her son.
‘To be an ordinary boy in a dress was amazing and shows you don’t have to be feminine or masculine.’
This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
