A real-life Cinderella turned an ordinary dress into a sensational Prom gown


Every high school girl's dream is to step into her Prom wearing a dazzling dream dress, on the arm of her own teen Prince Charming.

Prom dresses have become big business, in America, and a gown can cost from several hundred to many thousands of dollars and will be worn for just that one night. So what is a girl on a budget to do?

Alabama teen Nazmayde Castillo bought herself a $50 cocktail dress her boyfriend had 'spotted' from Fashion Nova, and with the help of her aunt, transformed it into a showstopper, reported Soy Carmin

She embroidered the intricated paisley print on the dress with sequins in shades of blue and turquoise and her aunt handmade dozens and dozens of matching blue satin flowers to create the gown's long sweeping skirt. 


‘Ok since ppl inboxing me asking where she got her dress from. I found it on @fashionnova for her and she had the idea to add flowers at the bottom. That’s it, a $50 dress is all flowers was all it took. We both creative as hell,’

On Prom Night, Castillo and her boyfriend MJ Johnson rocked the dance in matching colours and inimitable style.

Castillo shared photographs of her amazing prom dress on Instagram, and the comments rushed in. Women were amazed at her creativity and resourcefulness and praised her stylish ensemble.

The photos of the lovely prom dress went viral, and Castillo's creation was picked up and posted on the company's social media by  Fashion Nova itself.


 Fashion Nova is a fast fashion brand popular with celebrity fashionistas like Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Cardi B, Jordyn Woods, Khloe Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Adrienne Bailon, and Amber Rose.

The brand offers amazing cutting-edge design with very accessible prices and is becoming more and more popular with women who love designer looks but can't afford the price tags.

The brand posted a photo of Castillo's achievement on their Twitter account. On one side they placed the original dress, and next to it Castillo's souped-up creation, looking worthy of a red carpet.
