Gina Rodriguez Is Lending Her Golden Globes Dress to Her Fans for Prom
It’s Friday, and with the weekend only a few short hours away, it’s already off to a good start. This news about Gina Rodriguez, however, might just make even better. The Jane the Virgin actress + one-time face of Kipling is taking the cake for one of the most down-to-earth starlets currently starring in their own show… and she’s doing it with one award show gown. The star, who recently was nominated a second time for her role as Jane Villanueva on The CW show at the Golden Globes this year, might just be lending out her award show dress to a fan for prom.
@HereIsGina so would love to wear your golden globes dress to prom 😩

In a Twitter exchange, a young fan named Jessica Casanova tweeted at Gina saying she’d love a chance to wear Gina’s gown to her prom. In a totally unexpected but awesome move, Gina responded with, “Maybe we can make this happen.”
Where do you live? I only own my first globes dress the one from last year…maybe we can make this happen 💃🏽 https://t.co/m16qdYETgF

The reason why she can only lend out the 2015 gown and not the 2016 navy blue Zac Posen dress is because the 2015 gown is the only one she actually owns. Plus, it was her first dress to her first Golden Globes, AND she won an award. Most people would probably frame that dress, but not Gina.
The dress in question is this stunning black, body-skimming number by Badgley Mischka with sheer + fringe details that Gina wore to the Golden Globes in 2015 when she won the award for Best TV Comedy Actress.
@HereIsGina you're so stellar for this! can we start a "Sisterhood of the Traveling Gina Golden Globes Dress?"

Other fans who caught the exchange tweeted at the actress suggesting that she start passing the Badgley Mischka dress around to fans, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants-style.
I just melted. I swear I was just talking about this in the makeup/hair trailer on set. 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 yes! https://t.co/NCkFQYiHPy

Clearly, Gina is a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants fan, because she was all for the idea. She tweeted back to her fan enthusiastically saying that was exactly what she had in mind.
What a total sweetheart. Seriously.
What do you think of Gina’s gesture? Tweet us @BritandCo!

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
