Rodriguez did make it happen and the senior received the black Badgley Mischka gown that the actress wore on the night she won her first Golden Globe.
“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.”

Casanova said the Jane the Virgin star even recorded a video for her, wishing her well on her prom night.
“She took the time even with a busy schedule to make sure my day was going great,” Casanova said. “It meant so much.”
