Best Prom Ever? Gina Rodriguez Offers to Send Her Golden Globes Gown to a Fan

01/29/2016 at 10:33 AM ET

File this story under things that only happen in fairy tales (or A Cinderella Story). While the rest of us out there in the Twitter-verse are dutifully tweeting away unnoticed by our favorite celebs (well, unless you’re that girl who’s been tweeting at Jake T. Austin for the past five years) one teen named Jessica Casanova might get to wear Gina Rodriguez‘s 2015 Golden Globes dress thanks to a fateful exchange on the social media site.

Casanova tweeted at the Jane the Virgin star to inform her that the navy off-the-shoulder creation from Zac Posen Rodriguez wore to this year’s Golden Globes was her dream prom dress (a thought all of us have surely had while watching one red carpet or another). But unlike the rest of us, who rely on ABS by Allen Schwartz to provide our lookalike celebrity gowns, Casanova might actually get her wish. Rodriguez tweeted her back saying that while she doesn’t own that gown, she does own her 2015 strapless black Badgley Mischka dress and would be more than happy to lend it to the teen for her big day. And while it’s not the same dress of Casanova’s dreams, this one is even luckier — Rodriguez was wearing it when she took home a Golden Globe last year.

Now who do we talk to about borrowing one of Beyoncé’s sheer Met Gala gowns for our next date night?

What do you think of Gina Rodriguez giving away her Golden Globes dress? Which celebrity red carpet dress would you want to wear to prom?

I thought Gina said: I’ll let you wear it. Not: I’ll give it to you. Either way, it is a rare happening. Hope the fan is the right size. Gina isn’t very big… She is a lovely, young lady though…

What a great gesture! I have a nonprofit called Project Prom Dress San Antonio. Maybe one day I could receive a dress donation from a celebrity to donate to one of the girls here! :)
