Teen Wears Gina Rodriguez’s Golden Globes Gown to Her Prom and ‘Slays’ It

What a really cool thing for Gina to do.

When high school student Jessica Casanova asked Gina Rodriguez on Twitter in January if she could wear Gina’s Golden Globes dress to her prom, the Jane the Virgin star didn’t hesitate to make it happen and was happy to loan Jessica her 2015 black Badgley Mischka gown.

The 17-year-old told Entertainment Tonight when she received the dress it “fit like a glove” and when Casanova finally attended her high school prom in Buffalo, New York, over this past weekend, she looked gorgeous in the gown.


According to ET, Rodriguez even sent a video message to Casanova and told her, “Just know I love you. I’m so proud of you. I’m so excited for you. You look beautiful and everybody will remember it — especially you!”

The best part? The dress has gone back to Gina, and the actress wants to pass it on to another girl, to keep the traveling dress trend going.

Jessica told ET, “I hope whoever gets it next, it goes in the right hands, because it’s something close to her heart and it means a lot to her. I just hope it gets taken care of really well like the way I am.”
