IT was a star-studded gala that even Beyonce was attending.
So when Kayla Simone got a last minute invite to the Wearable Art Gala, she pulled out all the stops for a dress that would impress.
She placed an order for three different dresses from LightintheBox.com, but was left more than a little disappointed by what arrived.
"I’m about to fight this dress company," Kayla began her TikTok video.
"I ordered three dresses off LightintheBox.com.
"I got invited to the Wearable Art Gala last minute. I was like, ‘Oh my God, I need a dress’, so I was online trying to find a dress that would come in time.

"Of course, none of the dresses came in time but they just got here.
"Let me just show you what I ordered versus what I got."
The first dress Kayla ordered for the "1920s Harlem Renaissance" theme event was a cute plunging glittering number, with the bottom covered entirely in feathers.
"I was going for fringe, glitter, all that," she said.

"Um, cute, stunning, right? I was like, ‘Oh my God, this will look so cute on me’.
"This is what came in the mail," she said of the dress she was sent, which had some sparse feathers on the bottom and looked almost nothing like the picture.
"What is this? Why are these literally three feathers? Are you kidding me right now?" she asked.
"This looks like I gave my five-year-old sister my dress and said, ‘Hey, do you want to glue some feathers on this for an art project?’"
The second was a strapless maxi dress with stunning detail on the bodice, and a thigh-high split covered in ruffles.
"There is no way they looked at this and thought this looks anything like the same dress," she raged.
"Where is all this detail? Someone spray glued fabric and dumped glitter on it.
"Also what is this slit? My whole butt cheek is out. This is no, no, no."
Kayla added that they "saved the most egregious one for last".
The third dress was another strapless number, this time in silver, with a sparkling bodice adorned with flower embellishments and a tonne of fringing underneath.
"Look at this, tell me that someone in their right mind looked at this dress and said, ‘Yeah that looks just like that one'," she said.
"Do you see this? This Michael’s elastic strap that is glued onto this sequin… I have no words."
Concluding her video, Kayla raged: "I just don’t think I’ve ever been disrespected like this in my life.
"I am so upset. LightintheBox.com, do not ever in your life order from there.
"I really need a display for this event cause I was going to be in the same room, breathing Beyonce’s air, and this is what y’all send me to wear.
"Thank God I got a back up, cause otherwise I would be suing."
"The audacity of these clothes companies these days," one person commented on the video.
