As one of the leading ladies in the highly anticipated Ghostbusters remake, you would think that everyone wants a piece of Leslie Jones right now. Unfortunately, that is not the case as the actress pointed out in a disheartening tweet. Apparently, she's been having difficulty securing a dress for the movie's big premiere.
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— Leslie Jones (@Lesdoggg) June 28, 2016
Who you gonna call? Well, Christian Siriano—a fashion designer and Project Runway alum—immediately replied to Jones' tweet, and now it seems like she's all set for her big night. “I love Leslie and can’t wait to make her something fabulous to wear. I dress and support women of all ages and sizes,” he told TIME in an email.
@CSiriano YAAAAAASSSSSS— Leslie Jones (@Lesdoggg) June 28, 2016
Jones hasn't called out the designers that denied/ignored her requests, but we're sure that they're feeling the burn right about now even though they have yet to be named. While she hasn't explained why she hasn't been offered a dress, one can assume it's discrimination to some degree.
Hmm what a difference a tweet makes. Should I name the designers that didn't look out?Put y'all ass on blast. You will not get my love later— Leslie Jones (@Lesdoggg) June 29, 2016
The silver lining of this whole situation is how Twitter became a valuable source for last-minute premiere hookups, so at least there's that. We can't wait to see Jones shine like the star that she is at the premiere. Ghostbusters officially hits theaters on July 15.
