This Teen Slayed at Prom in Gina Rodriguez’s Golden Globes Dress
Prom season has arrived in all its adolescent glory, and one lucky teen in particular just may have had the best prom ever — or at least tied with India Ross, the teen who recreated Beyonce’s 2015 Met Gala outfit!
Remember Jessica Casanova, the young woman that scored Gina Rodriguez’s Golden Globes dress? For those that need a refresher, Jessica tweeted the Jane the Virgin star back in January, saying that she would love to wear her dress to prom. The inspiring actress tweeted right back, asking where she lived, so that she might send her the 2015 Badgley Mischka gown (the only one she owned, in which she also won the award for Best Actress in a Comedy Series).
Making good on her word, Gina’s dress arrived right on schedule, just in time for the big day, along with a special video message for Jessica from Gina, wishing her a great night. Check out how fierce she looked below:

Telling E! that Gina’s dress made her feel “like a princess,” Jessica went on to say, “It gave me chills knowing it’s something that came from her heart and I cherish that very much. I wish I could give her a big hug and tell her how much I love her. She will always have a special place in my heart.”
We think girl looks STUNNING. And serious kudos go to you, Gina — you’re the coolest.
