Leslie Jones is having a "make it work" moment.
Ahead of the Ghostbusters July 9 red carpet premiere at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, Jones took to Twitter to call out the fashion industry for not catering to women of her size and stature. "It's so funny how there are no designers wanting to help me with a premiere dress for movie," she tweeted Tuesday. "Hmmm that will change and I remember everything." Within an hour, fashion designer (and Project Runway winner) Christian Siriano digitally waved at her—using emojis, natch—on the social networking site. The comedienne replied, "YAAAAAASSSSSS."
Whether Siriano will design Jones' dress remains to be seen.
That said, he has designed ensembles for stars of all shapes and sizes, including Uzo Aduba, Lady Gaga, Sarah Hyland, Christina Hendricks and Gabourey Sidibe. In late April, he unveiled an 18-piece plus-size collection for Lane Bryant. "My mom, who's in her late 60s, loves the collection; Danielle Brooks loves the collection...so many different types and ages of women can find something great in this collection," he told Refinery 29. It's a good thing Jones spoke her mind on Twitter, as that's where Siriano had noticed a shift in sizing. "I don't know why [the plus-size market] is changing so much all of a sudden, but it probably has to do with the world of social media," he explained. "You see more body types by scrolling through your Instagram."
