Can we talk about Leslie Jones in the front row at Christian Siriano’s show for New York Fashion Week?
For anyone who may have forgotten, Leslie Jones met Siriano when he volunteered over twitter to dress her for the Ghostbusters 2016 premiere when she was struggling to find a dress as no designer had offered to work with her. This was also amid Leslie’s twitter harassment issues.
Siriano’s show included women of all sizes & skin tones as well as Avie Acosta, who is trans woman and the first trans person in any of Siriano’s NY fashion week shows. As well as being inclusive of gender identity, Siriano included two gender non conforming androgynous male models in the show.
Leslie has said of Siriano that “he’s so normal, he’s so down to earth, and he does love all women. That’s what I love about him. He loves all women.”
So in the words of Siriano himself, “people are people,” & “we all grow in the same garden.”
“I’m wearing vintage Levi’s that I hemmed, Zara booties, a panZi USA tee that I cropped, thrifted oversize blazer, and my favorite red beret. My style is a mix of vintage and classic, masculine and feminine, but is very mood based and always evolving. Red has always been a favorite of mine. I am building a nice little collection of red staples to add a pop of color to my outfits. Oh, and leopard print. I’ve always been a sucker for leopard print.”
