Two weeks ago Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones called out the fashion industry for snob-ing non-sample-size #bossbitches when she tweeted her frustration over the fact that no designers would dress her for the film’s premiere. It sparked a debate about body ideals in fashion, and why some designers struggle to dress women who aren’t a size 0. “Things will change,” Jones warned. “And I remember everything.”
Things did change, reeeeeal quick! Designer Christian Siriano immediately offered to dress the comedian/actress and the resulting partnership not only served up some super cute Insta posts of the two meeting to plan the look, but HELLO final result:
Jones looks straight FIRE in this red, off-the-shoulder gown, which screams, “eat your heart out!” to all the designers who turned her down. Kudos to Siriano for having the smarts to take on what others deemed “too challenging.” We hope more designers follow his lead!
