Leslie Jones And Christian Siriano Show That Women Of All Sizes Deserve To Look Glam

by Katherine Barner

Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones made headlines when she sent out tweets discussing the difficulty she had finding a dress for the film’s premiere.  She was then basically blamed by various fashion designers for not giving herself enough time to find a dress, due to her size. Runway sample sizes are usually a size 4, and Jones is a size 8 or 10.

Soon after her frustration-fueled rant on Twitter, Christian Siriano saved the day and offered to dress Jones for the premiere. And he saved the day epically. Jones absolutely sizzled in the cherry red, off the shoulder gown. Sit down, haters, Jones and Siriano don’t have time for your bullshit.

Siriano has a mission to make fashion more open for women of all sizes. He also got married to his boyfriend, Brad Walsh, on Saturday, the same day of the Ghostbusters premiere. Congratulations to both Jones and Siriano for an epic weekend!

Ghostbusters  will be in theaters July 15.
