Gina Rodriguez Lends Golden Globes Dress to High School Fan for Prom


Gina Rodriguez played fairy godmother to a high school senior, lending her a dress for prom.

But not just any old dress. Rather, it was the gorgeous strapless, black Badgley Mischka gown Rodriguez wore to her first Golden Globes in 2015, where she took home the award for Best Actress in a Television Series -- Comedy or Musical.

LOOK: Gina Rodriguez Shaves Off Most of Her Hair!

ET caught up with the lucky fan, 17-year-old Jessica Casanova, in Buffalo, New York, as she tried on the dress.

"It feels really good," Jessica told ET. "It fits like a glove!"

The journey to get the gown to Buffalo started simply enough.

"I tweeted to her after watching the Golden Globes and I said to her, 'I so wish I could wear your Golden Globes dress to prom,'" Jessica recalled. "I would say maybe in an hour or an hour and a half she replied and said, 'Maybe we can make this happen.' From there it started to roll."

Jessica's Hollywood prom makeover didn't stop at the dress. She also got her hair styled like Gina's at Corto's Salon of South Buffalo.
