From the runways to the streets to and from the shows, the style at New York Fashion Week is insane, and Saturday Night Live’s Leslie Jones isn’t afraid to show her full appreciation. At the reveal of Christian Siriano’s spring 2018 collection Saturday night, Jones—who sat front and centre wearing a stellar fuchsia cape styled by the featured designer—could not contain her enthusiasm when model Coco Rocha strutted her stuff.

Luckily, the audience adored Jones’s reaction, and for those of us who weren’t in attendance, the feel-good moment was captured from many an angle.

After the show, Rocha tweeted her gratitude for Jones’s unorthodox reaction.

Wouldn’t we all? Jones replied in iconic @Lesdoggg fashion, and the exchange is going down in history books as one of our all time fave NYFW moments.

After Jones tweeted about her struggle to find a designer interested in dressing her for the Ghostbusters premiere, Siriano stepped in and made her a *fire* red, off-the-shoulder gown. The two have been great pals ever since, as evidenced by Jones supporting Siriano at his show Saturday.

Jones wasn’t the only audience member losing her shit—Rocha’s two year old daughter, Ioni James, was taking cues from the heart-eye emoji as she watched her supermodel momma slay in a dramatic black gown.

Needless to say, love was in the air, y’all.
