Ghostbusters star Leslie Jones looked drop-dead gorgeous in a stunning red dress at her film’s premiere last night, and the most amazing part of it all is that her outfit came together at the very last minute.
Jones may be one of the stars in a new blockbuster film, but the comedic actor complained of some serious wardrobe issues when it was time to pick out her look for the red carpet. Namely, Jones said that no designers were stepping up with offers to dress her for the premiere.
Jones tweeted, “It’s so funny how there are no designers wanting to help me with a premiere dress for movie.”

Project Runway‘s Christian Siriano jumped in to save the day, though, tweeting Leslie back to let her know that he was interested. And boy, did he deliver! All eyes were on Jones in Siriano’s jaw-dropping off-the-shoulder gown with a bold thigh-high slit. Jones complemented the dress with a sparkly, eye-catching necklace by DanniJo, stilettos by Vince Camuto, earrings by Chris Aire and a clutch by Judith Leiber. Jones posted on Instagram, “I want to thank my baby @csiriano for making me this fabulous gown and for my wonderful stylist @bmcstylez for putting this look all together!”

And does this dress ever give us a serious case of closet envy! Siriano said on Instagram that Jones looked “simple, elegant, powerful and chic” — we couldn’t agree more!
