Leslie Jones Is Christian Siriano’s Fashion Muse
Leslie Jones famously wore a fabulous red dress by Christian Siriano after multiple fashion designers refused to make a dress for her. Ever since then, “we’ve sold hundreds of that red gown,” Christian tells People magazine.
“Certain celebrities, when they wear clothes, people immediately want it. Our wildcard is when we dress Leslie,” he said before adding, “She’s my hype woman.”
As People notes, that goes for almost every time Leslie has worn his clothes — including the blue jumpsuit to the Emmys in 2016, a blue suit for the Perfect Game 20th Anniversary bash and a white tuxedo mini to the Time 100 Gala in April.
Recently she wore an iridescent suit to the Emmys in September. “Man I looked good giving @iamreginaking her Emmy!!” she boasted of the Siriano-designed suit.

“A lot of people wanted that suit!” Christian said to People. “I think people really resonate with seeing different people on the runway or different people on the red carpet that look more like them. You have to put things in people’s face for them to get it sometimes.”
