"Ghostbusters" Actress Leslie Jones Shows Women of All Sizes Deserve Red Carpet Fashion

"Ghostbusters" Actress Leslie Jones Shows Women of All Sizes Deserve Red Carpet Fashion

When actress Leslie Jones tried to find a dress for the film premiere of "Ghostbusters," she said that no designers were willing to help her.

Her statement made headlines and designers fired back that because sample dresses are not made in her size, she should allow for more time.

But one designer wasn't having it.

Christian Siriano created Jones' dress and, at the same time, crushed the expectation that a woman has to be a certain size to get a fabulous designer dress.

And Jones, who plays Patty Tolan — an MTA employee in the latest "Ghostbusters" reboot — ended up wowing critics in her red, floor-length gown.


"Ghostbusters" will premiere in theaters on July 15.
