Amy is the Director of Trending Content at LittleThings. After graduating from Florida State University with a creative writing degree, she moved straight to New York City to pursue a career in the arts. She loves discovering and sharing viral videos, watching movies with her Muppet-like poodle mix named Cali, and doing the robot whenever possible.

Like most seniors in high school, Cheyanne’s life mostly consists of schoolwork, after-school activities, and homework.

The ambitious 18-year-old honor roll student plans to join the Army right after graduation.

For now, Cheyanne is on her school’s flag football team, wrestling team, track team, and volleyball team. She basically wears nothing but sweatpants, sweaters, and Crocs. It’s been many, many years since she’s worn a dress. It’s just not her style.

When it came to planning her outfit for her upcoming senior prom, Cheyanne assumed she’d be wearing a suit or tux.

But she also knew how much her beloved mom, Suzanna, dreamed of seeing her in a gown, even for just one night.

So with an open mind, the teen with tomboy tendencies decided to try something outside of her comfort zone. She knew how shocked everyone would be if they saw her in a more glamorous prom look.

The beauty team at The Rachael Ray Show took Cheyanne under their wing, brought her dress shopping at Macy’s, and gave her a complete prom makeover.

Watch the video below to see Cheyanne’s unbelievable transformation that leaves her, her mom, and Rachael in tears.
