Jones calls out fashion designers

Saturday Night Live star Leslie Jones logged on to Twitter this week to share her frustration with fashion designers — and she’s prepared to shine a spotlight on those who’ve snubbed her.

According to The Cut, Jones, who is part of the cast of the forthcoming Ghostbusters film, took to Twitter on Tuesday, June 28 to reveal that many fashion designers are not stepping up to dress the star for a red carpet appearance for the film’s highly-anticipated release. She wrote:

“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.”

But shortly after Jones sent out the tweet, The Cut says Project Runway alum Christian Siriano responded, offering to design a premiere look for the star. The Cut reports that Siriano later told Time in an email, “I love Leslie and can’t wait to make her something fabulous to wear. I dress and support women of all ages and sizes.”

While Jones finally got the designer attention she deserves, it didn’t keep her from tweeting one last time about the issue. Several hours later, she wrote:

“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.”

Whether or not Jones will actually reveal the designers who dissed her remains to be seen, but the important thing is, she found a designer that is excited about working with her — or we say, the designer found her.
