In the case of a young teen named Alyssa Linares from Houston, the winner of Verizon's 2013 My Fabulous Quince essay contest, she had all of her fairytale dreams come true recently, thanks to the generosity and fashion expertise of Jennifer Lopez.
"This is so up my alley. This is what I like to do during my time off…I like to dress people up. I'm always the Barbie doll, right?" J.Lo explained of the experience. "I never had a quinceañera, so I'm living vicariously through her!"
As for Alyssa, she was positively gleaming with excitement, sitting next to the star.
"Having you style me was the most amazing thing. I idolize you. You're my role model!" she gushed.
