Leslie Jones Checks Fashion World After ‘Ghostbusters’ Red-Carpet Radio Silence
Jones, who's preparing for the July 15 premiere of the sci-fi comedy's reboot, tweeted yesterday (June 28) that she can't seem to nail down a designer who's willing to collaborate on a red carpet dress. In Jones' true-to-form toughness, though, it came as more admonition than plea.
"It's so funny how there are no designers wanting to help me with a premiere dress for movie. Hmmm that will change and I remember everything," she wrote, before designer-to-the-stars Christian Siriano replied with one assuaging emoji-wave. Siriano, who won Season 4 of Project Runway and has since dressed the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Rihanna and Lady Gaga, told Time he's thrilled at the idea of constructing something beautiful for Jones on the big day.
"I love Leslie and can’t wait to make her something fabulous to wear. I dress and support women of all ages and sizes," Siriano said.
Later, after securing what seemed like a sure thing, Jones warned that she wouldn't forget being ignored by certain members of the style industry.
"What a difference a tweet makes," she wrote in broad strokes to the world of fashion. "You will not get my love later."
