All it took was one tweet to get the attention of Jane the Virgin star Gina Rodriguez.

Buffalo teen Jessica Casanova was simply smitten with Rodriguez’s navy Golden Globes dress, telling the actress that the gown would make the perfect prom outfit after catching her at this year’s awards show in January.

To Casanova’s surprise, Rodriguez responded, stating that the Zac Posen-designed dress was on loan. She does have another Golden Globes showstopper: The formfitting Badgley Mischka gown she wore in 2015.

And so the dress made its way upstate, where Casanova wore it to her prom on Thursday night. After she’s done with it, Rodriguez says she’ll be sending it to another lucky fan to use for a special event.

The star-struck teen appeared to have a blast at prom. As for how her outfit was received?

Yes indeed.
