Prom dreams do come true!

A New York teen had a serious red-carpet moment last week, all thanks to Gina Rodriguez. The Jane the Virgin star let Buffalo high school student Jessica Casanova wear her strapless Badgley Mischka gown to prom. Rodriguez wore the dress when she accepted her award for best comedic actress in a TV series.

“Gina’s dress made me feel like a princess and it gave me chills knowing that it was something that came from her heart and I cherish that very much,” Casanova told E! News. “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.”

In January, Casanova tweeted the 31-year-old actress to ask if she could wear the Zac Posen gown Rodriguez donned this year. Rodriguez, a Chicago native, said she didn’t own that dress but did own her 2015 gown and “maybe we can make this happen.”

So, which do you think Casanova will remember more: her date or her dress?
