Leslie Jones Head-Turning Red Gown At Ghostbusters Premiere

Kick-ass comedian Leslie Jones strolled down the Ghostbusters green carpet in Los Angeles Saturday night, and she looked foxy as hell.

Jones, who co-stars in Ghostbusters alongside Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, tweeted a few weeks ago that she'd been having trouble finding a designer to dress her for the premiere. Her tweet prompted an immediate response from Christian Siriano, who volunteered via emoji to dress the Saturday Night Live cast regular.

Up to no good. 👋🏻 @lesdogggg #LeslieJones

A few brave stylists stepped up to say it was all Jones's fault for not planning ahead, since she's not "a sample size," and designers need extra time to figure out how to dress a human body that's not a size 0 without just resorting to throwing a tarp on her and calling it a day. Obviously, the day Jones tweeted about her problem was the first time she considered what the heck she should wear to a red carpet for a summer blockbuster that has been stirring up commenters and wanna-be critics for what seems like decades.

Siriano designed an Old Hollywood, off-the-shoulder style gown in bombshell red for Jones, with a slit up the thigh. The results are nothing sort of fabulous. That should be no surprise, given Siriano's mission to make the red carpet a more welcoming place for women of all sizes. "My mission now is what we're calling that 'everywoman,'" he told The Cut last February. "You can be any size, any age, and wear something from our collection, and that's so important to me."

Ghostbusters opens nationwide Friday, July 15th.
