Johnson, who usually mimics major celebrity fashion moments for fun on social media, explained that he found his girlfriend’s prom dress on Fashion Nova for only $50 and then, they added the details.

In an interview with Teen Vogue, Johnson said: “My dream is to be an actor and social media comedian. I’ve never really thought about being a fashion designer.”

The young couple looked terrific in their bright blue outfits. Nazmayde Castillo wore her altered dress and Johnson wore a metallic blue tuxedo that matched perfectly.

Though Johnson helped Castillo pick out her dress, she came up with the idea to add something special to it, and her aunt ended up making the altercations. "The skirt took like two days because she had to buy more flowers," revealed MJ. 

After the dress was done, they added "a little touch of blue glitter" to add the final touch, and the result made the young couple become a viral sensation.

To add more fuel to the fire, MJ recently brought back the dress, but this time, he was the one wearing it. The Young man shared a series of hilarious pics where he's donning the dress that, surprisingly, fits perfectly on his body, while Castillo is seen wearing his prom tuxedo.
