Ugh! Designers Refused to Dress Leslie Jones

Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones is blowing up. She’s on an iconic comedy show, TV commercials, and she’s gearing up for the release of a new film–the highly anticipated reboot of Ghostbusters. While her career is certainly rising, it seems like her fashion prospects are not.

Tuesday, Jones tweeted that she couldn’t find a designer who wanted to dress her for the upcoming premiere of Ghostbusters.

It’s kind of unthinkable that a rising star who is a major part of a big budget film would have a problem finding a designer to work with, but like many women who don’t fit into Hollywood’s narrow standard of beauty, that seems to be what happened to Jones.

Thankfully, Project Runway alum Christian Siriano stepped up to offer his services.

Siriano is known for making gorgeous gowns for both plus and straight sized women, and he even teamed up with Lane Bryant to work on a line with Orange Is the New Black star Danielle Brooks.

If his past work is any indication of what he’ll hook up for Jones, looks like the SNL actress is in great hands.
