Andrea wore a fiery red ball gown that featured intricate beadwork, punctuated by a sheer red veil adorning her long dark hair. According to the 18-year-old actress, walking down the runway was a "dream come true" for her.

She took to Instagram to show off her appreciation for the fashion designer. She wrote, "Last night was truly spectacular. I used to only dream about walking down a runway, but to actually do it while wearing such a beautiful gown was such a humbling moment. Thank you so much @michaelleyva_ for having me last night. It was an honor to not only wear this magical piece, but to also close your fashion show. You have made a lot of women’s dreams a reality through your designs."
