A Texas teen whose prom look resembled a can of Arizona iced tea has won the Internet for her creativity.

Vismaya Cherian, a 18-year-old from Houston, hit her May 20 prom wearing a long, mint-green, rose-print skirt and a white top with corset stitching that almost perfectly matched a can of Arizona Green Tea (save for the cherry blossoms printed on the beverage).

“Oops, spilled the tea at prom,” Cherian tweeted, alongside two photos of her holding a can of iced tea, which received 233 likes.


“This wasn’t intentional — when I bought my skirt, my cousin told me it looked like Arizona iced tea,” Cherian tells Yahoo Style. “So I brought a can to use as a prop during photos.” Sweet!

Cherian isn’t the only teen to get creative with her prom dress. High school students Cassie Berta and Seth Moffitt modeled their prom attire after former President Barack Obama’s and Michelle Obama’s outfits at the 36th Annual Kennedy Center Honors in 2013, while budget-savvy 17-year-old Shami Oshun sewed her own stunning prom dress by hand for $15.
