Leslie Jones had a “Pretty Woman” moment on the red carpet -- for more than one reason.
Jones attended the “Ghostbusters” premiere in Hollywood Saturday looking downright regal in a red, off-the-shoulder Christian Siriano gown, a statement necklace and strappy heels.
The look came together fairly publicly, after a certain Twitter exchange between Jones and Siriano back in June. The “Saturday Night Live” star revealed she was having a difficult time finding a designer to dress her for the highly anticipated premiere.
Siriano was quick to offer his services and thus, a match made in sartorial heaven was born.
In that moment Jones, who vowed to “remember everything” and told designers who wronged her they “will not get [her] love later,” reminded us an awful lot of Julia Roberts and her famous “Big mistake. Huge.” scene in “Pretty Woman.”
Well, if Siriano didn’t pick up on the movie parallels then, he certainly did in his design choice: the red gown gave us major “Lady in Red” vibes from that very same movie.
Siriano even captioned one of the proud photos he posted on Instagram using the hashtag #prettywoman.
We bet those designers are feeling a lot like the sales associates who wouldn’t wait on Roberts’ character right about now.
