American comedienne, TV host and actress Leslie Jones is not just popular for her humorous outbursts on Saturday Night Live or her quick, witty comebacks on Twitter. The Ghostbusters actress is also a body positive activist and an inspiration to loads of black women around the world having been hit with her fair share of body shaming, racism and misogynistic comments on social media.
From being told by some designers in the past that they would not dress her, to dealing with being hacked with her nudes exposed and constant body shaming, Leslie has risen above it all, overcoming all the negativity and is still going on strong.
Leslie Jones proved how sexy, fashionable and formidable she has always been when she rocked a custom white blazer dress by top fashion designer, Christian Siriano who is fast becoming the king of red carpet fashion as well as Hollywood’s champion of body diversity.
The outfit Leslie wore to the Time 100 Gala, channeled legendary singer and model, Grace Jones’ signature style and we dare say she nailed the look to the T, finishing it up with a diamond studded clutch purse, dark shades, dark matte lip colour and strappy heel sandals.
Christian Siriano also happened to be Leslie’s date to the Gala and his excitement was obvious as he couldn’t hold his elated self back when he said on his Instagram;
“Thank you Leslie for being such an amazing date last night! It was a dream to be included in the #time100 and your kind words made it even more special. I love dressing you and would do it every day of the week!”
