Leslie Jones

Saturday Night Live cast member Leslie Jones was dragged by stylists who say she is to blame if designers don’t want to work with her.

Jones took to Twitter.com on Tuesday to complain bitterly about fashion designers refusing to dress her for Ghostbusters movie premieres.

Jones tweeted:

“It’s so funny how there are no designers wanting to help me with a premiere dress for movie. Hmmm that will change and I remember everything.”

Then on Wednesday she tweeted:

“Hmm what a difference a tweet makes. Should I name the designers that didn’t look out? Put y’all ass on blast. You will not get my love later.”

But stylist Jessica Paster blamed the 48-year-old comedian for not giving designers enough time to work their magic.

“This is nobody’s fault except Leslie’s,” Paster told Pret-a-Porter.com. “She should have known four to five months ago the date of premiere, and said, ‘I’m not a sample size, I need to go to designers early or buy myself a dress.’ Don’t be blaming designers and saying they don’t like you.”

Also speaking out was stylist Jeanne Yang who gave an economics seminar on the financial hardship of designing a one-off dress for a big-boned woman:

“When you’re a designer, sitting with your accountant, you have to think about how much it costs to create a sample,” said Yang. “It may take hours to do a muslin, and thousands of dollars to create one specific piece. You justify it because you use it for so many things.”

Yang said designers often do not have the luxury of designing one-off dresses that they can’t use again.

“One dress has to serve for the runway show, for sales, and to get publicity. If you have a sample that has to fit a model, you don’t have the option of creating things for premieres,” she said.

“No one ever does a variety of sizes. No one has those resources, even the biggest designers don’t. For something as big as the Oscars or when you are given enough time, designers may lay out the expense of creating something. But then, a lot of designers who do go through the trouble to create things, and spend the money and time, sometimes they take a gamble then the client says they don’t like it. Then you’ve spent $5,000 to $10,000 for a dress that’s not worn. It can be the death of a line.”

Within 30 minutes of Jones’ initial tweet, fashion designer Christian Siriano raised his hand in an emoji tweet to offer to make a dress for Jones.

The 30-year-old, openly gay Project Runway winner is the go-to designer for women of all body shapes.

He recently collaborated with Lane Bryant on a plus-size collection featuring Orange Is the New Black actress Danielle Brooks.

But Jones doesn’t seem very eager to take Siriano up on his offer. He’s still waiting for her to show up for a fitting.

“I love Leslie and I’m a huge fan of her work,” Siriano said via email on Wednesday. “I can’t wait to create something special for her to wear. Hopefully I will see her in my studio this week to make something new and exciting for her to wear. I support all women no matter age or size!”

    That red lipstick is not for her IMO.

    Control your own, then you won’t be depending on others.

  • Just Keya

    Mind you, designers get samples for people who create a buzz and will make them money. She is not “famous enough” for this yet.

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I wish her the absolute best find Timothy Smell Schell hell I don’t know his last name lol.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    She is working! this all just went down on TEWS-DAY. She was supposed to drop everything and fly to him that day? Commitments prior. Press junkets in re to..promoting the movie? Thats a contractual obligation. Its only Thursday.

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    These so-called stylists need to shut the f up. I watch project runway. They create dresses in a day or 2 all the time.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    How do we know she hasn’t been asking around for dresses? Just because she hopped on Twitter this week doesn’t mean she just woke up Monday asking for a dress. Whatever, man. Let Christian make you a nice dress, then find a good stylist who can do this for you in the future.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    They complain about it, but they make some fly gowns in like 12 hours.

  • yoni

    Kudos to Christian for the offer. I remember him on Project Runway.

  • Full Monty

    She also need some Vitamin D pills stat!

  • yoni

    Especially if the price is right.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Fashion industry. They built their whole entire fortune on unpaid interns. The ones that are complaining that Leslie didnt give them enough time better find them some. They BEEN doing it. And post it on their IG and be sure to request a headshot.

    YEP!

  • iWasteTime

    They are full of shit. I would believe some of this if NO ONE came to her rescue after her tweet. Or if I didn’t watch Drag Race, or get my wedding dress made, by one person who was also doing prom dresses in about a month. Did the designers explain the hardships to her, shit did Melissa “Not a Average Size” McCarthy? I bet that is why she thought she was good and even with all the “trouble” as described they could have worked with her, split the cost etc etc.

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    Yes.

  • iWasteTime

    Word. Her co star Melissa “Not a Average Size” McCarthy ain’t a size 2 even with her weight loss

  • Renee Bee

  • yoni

    I wish she would get one of US to make her one and they SHOW OUT on the runway! Yall know once WE do something, it becomes the most talked about “thing” for a while.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    This is what pissed me. Somebody out there making a dress for Melissa. And like I said when this first became a topic, I like Melissa. But come on. this is blatant.

  • Mel

    Give an upcoming designer a chance instead Leslie. them stylist telling her “bish sit down” in a professional way .

  • rashad walker

    She is black and most importantly… Not a mega famous black star like (Beyoncé, Rihanna, Nikki, or Oprah). If designers can make dresses on a wim for plus size women like Oprah & Nikki on short notice they can do if for her. Project Runway designers make the impossible happen when Hydie gives them less than 24hrs to crest 2 looks so stop the excuses!

  • iWasteTime

    Right. and probably on “short” notice.
    So every time they make a dress for Diaper Ass Kardashian they losing thousands of dollars? #FOH

    She betta take her azz to TJ Maxx or one of those glamour stores that dot Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn. Any dress that can be donned at a Haitian event is certainly suitable for the red carpet.

    I’m actually shocked that Siriano jumped in and wants to dress her. He rarely ever has women of color in his shows or his campaigns.

  • i troll it like i see it

    This is a good post, I didn’t have a clue about the financial end of creating a dress for a woman that’s not a model. I actually get what the designer is saying, plus, until yesterday’s little rant, I had NO IDEA who Leslie Jones even was.

    ======================
    Loved him on Project Runway.
    My mother is an seamstress, as was my grandmother. It takes time, a passion and commitment to make dresses for “big boned” person. You want to flatter the person. She IS not the first size 12 plus person of color needing a dress. Making waves for NO Good Dog Gone Reason

  • i troll it like i see it

    I think the point is, why would they? How would it benefit them? Those other ladies you just named would generate huge publicity for them. I didn’t know who Leslie Jones even was until yesterday!

  • Angela

    Drink bleach??

  • DivineMsM

    Right, Flatbush Ave will have any dress you need, lol. too funny.

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Good read. And I liked her point about the studio. She should have cussed them out, too.

    Xtian Siriano is the sh*t. He and the Wu guy that styles the FLOTUS will work with anyone and they are good!

  • yoni

    Looks like it. I love the sheen. Looks real healthy.

  • clockwerk trixcess

    Melissa had to start her own fashion line because designers wouldn’t dress her.

  • SpideySense

    The other day my fiance said that he was glad that she was finally getting some recognition considering that she’s been in the comedy game for a long time and she’s actually quite funny. I agreed and then added that I was also glad, especially since she’s not a classic Beauty. I thought it was great that women who are not universally attractive can land acting opportunities. After all, an unattractive man can get lots of work while aging or average looking women do not.

    He didn’t like the comment because he thought I was trying to shade her, but I really wasn’t. Does anyone else get what I was trying to say? Is there ever a way to say something real like that without coming off as shady? I feel bad but I don’t think I’m wrong.

  • Mystery User

    Awww, look at you being all positive and sh*t!

  • Angela

    And Christian knows this, that’s why he is offering to dress her….But she needs to SUPPORT A BLACK DESIGNER….

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    hmmm, could be a press w/promande to make it stand up <–that answer was from the hairstylist in me…Then again most "celebrity Hair stylist " dont know how to use a HOT COMB….they use electric shyt

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Someone on here said that he dresses women of color all the time at his shows. And makes sure to have the right makeup artists and hair people on hand to do their hair and makeup. Is that not true? I just know him from Project Runway mostly.

  • yoni

    I feel you. Tell his sensitive ass to go sit down. LOL

  • MissHarlem

    Nope. If you genuinely have good intentions it’s not shady. I talk like this all the time.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Imma venture out and say that Leslie money and pockets probably not as deep as Melissa McCarthy’s. Melissa been on big TV shows and huge box office movies for a long time at this point.

  • yoni

    My former stylist (who bounced to ATL on me :box: ) used them Marcel’s, hun-T! I loved the old school hot plate and hot comb. They da bess! LOL

  • hi-liter

    Everyone in Hollywood cant be gorgeous. But with the money Leslie is making/will make, she will get her look right. I remember her from Def Comedy, BET Comic View, etc and she is hella funny, so she will do well. Her hair fits her look, I like it on her. With her makeup, she is dealing with an issue most black women, including models deal with is (whyte) people not knowing how to do a black woman’s makeup. Whomever does Lupita’s makeup is who needs to do Leslie’s makeup.

  • SpideySense

    I think he knows I’m right. I just think he would have preferred to gloss over her face and just discuss her body of work. I support Leslie but mine eyes have seen her face and I can’t pretend that I haven’t.

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    I’m a thickums and Gabby is always looking a mess to me. Stylist can’t get it right with her.. But Monique and Queen Latifah they should know somebody to help her.

  • mela.reign77

    That was nice of him and I think whatever he designs for her will be great.

  • Jusstlookn

    Why do people that most people get dresses made at the last minute. That’s that true. You do fittings, these premieres are major Productions within themselves. People get fitted refitted and fitted again.
    They exercise, stave, cleanse, fast, get there mouth sewn, designers do NOT make sample size 18. PERIOD

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    I know Leslie Jones trying to make that pictured hairstyle her signture look…but I dont like it on her…she can rock a short pixie cut…or something with a longer bang, I think will look better on her.

  • Jusstlookn

    Great example Hi-Liter. Ms. Lupita is off the rack size and designers probably send her gowns and when doing so, they probably have to be refitted.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    She went IN

  • 100milesperhour

    They just don’t want to dress her, has nothing to do with economics. The rationale stylist gave is a snippet of what she said; she wrote a book report about why sample sizes are small & limited. When someone goes into that much detail, they’re lying or covering up.
    Why does she have to be validated by “certain” designers anyway? Their brands are based on snobbery & exclusion. Who’d she ask?

  • BKLYNS MAMA

    Yasss for the MARCELS….the ish will get so shyt RIGHT n bone straight…or burn it out trying,lol.

  • Jusstlookn

    Edges be LayedT and or burnt if the stylist was subpar.

  • https://twitter.com/Chicagowise Chicagowise

    Not thirsty, but you can have my share. ? ?

  • MissHarlem

    Not necessarily true. My wife’s last movie premiere in the spring she had zero fittings and tried on her dress an hour before red carpet. Jasmine Sullivan for the Grammy’s etc

  • Sucker Free

    Hmmm…

  • Canary Red™

    As much as she gets on my nerves, I
    RESPECT her profession, the history being made and milestones, I agree with her! I’m glad she called them out – if it was any of the other girls they were working on their dress in January!
    A hit dog will holla – keep calling them out Leslie!

  • http://Copblock.org Brenden’s Back #BlockDeez?

    Sounds like a bunch of yt lies to me…if only he/she didn’t resist, all lives matter…There’s always an excuse? Then again, Ms Leslie plays into their games when it’s convenient for her, so? Reality check??

  • Less hate, more love.

    I don’t get why people call her ugly, she’s not ugly at all. In all honesty, we’re all beautiful, it’s just some people look better than others. Nonetheless, she’s hilarious.

  • Tammie Reed

    Ive met Christian Siriano a few times, such a sweetie and truly talented! Sad that she cant find anyone but it does take awhile, I cover red carpets all the time and designers sends me items to wear but I have to give them months in advance notice for huge affairs. She should try Tadashi though!

  • starbright9449

    What are they spending $5,000-$10,000 on, fabric, rhinestones, fake pearls… What?? I can go and get myself some lovely, rich and quality fabric for less than $100. Not to mention the lady drawing and sewing my dress will not charge me more than $200. I draw pieces myself sometimes. Like seriously, why so much money? Someone enlighten me and help me with my ignorance lol.

  • barbeez

    She needs to slow down. She’s a big boned Black women who is relatively unknown. She has to work her way up to getting attention clothes from designers. Even Kim K couldn’t get designers to give her dresses for years. They would have to create a dress for Leslie because it won’t be a sample size. Also she’s doesn’t have the fame yet. Just chill and buy your own dress this time. Stop being low key ghetto and cheap.

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Them other designers should just STFU
    Why even comment… ?

  • Mystery User

    She should try instagram – hos selling dresses on there all day!

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    I bought a pair of his shoes at Payless a couple yrs back. They still sharB??

  • SpideySense

    Good fabric cost money. Also the rhinestones the beads and all those other things that you were mentioning cost money as well. The biggest part of the expense is probably the labor however. It is very skilled work. Not everybody can construct a well-made dress that fits people of all sizes. So it’s the time that it takes for the seamstresses to make the dress, as well as the time that it took the designer to actually designed the Garment in a way that would fit correctly. Couple that with the cost of the actual fabric zippers buttons Etc and dresses end up costing a lot of money.

    You have to factor in brand perception as well. No one would think highly of Gucci if it was accessible to everyone, so even if their profit margin is really high they have to have a higher price point on their clothing or it devalues the brand.

  • Low E. TUH!

    TUH

  • MissHarlem

    I watch his show which is also executive produced by my wife ?. He styled her nice for the Grammy’s. I love his spirit

  • barbeez

    Yes. But Melissa has earned a name for herself and basically she’s the star of Ghostbusters. If Leslie, calms down…her time will come.

  • starbright9449

    If she was a big name those same designers talking about time-frame, cost and whatever else wouldn’t be saying those things. If MC, Nicole Kidman, Beyonce, Scarlet Johansson or Rihanna needed a dress at the last minute. All of these designers would be rushing to assist them despite knowing their dress may not get picked.

    I be feeling all mushy when he helps regular people lol. It’s a cute show. Our version of what not to wear. Half show celeb the other half regular people.

  • SpideySense

    I’ve been saying this type of thing for years! People who are attractive or even beautiful often times don’t have to develop their personalities all that much because others gravitate to their looks. When you are a less attractive, or not classically attractive, you tend to have to develop your personality a lot in order for people to get past the physical. That’s why I was always so confused when unattractive people have a nasty attitude or nasty personality, because it’s only working against them.

  • Carrington

    This is ignorant as hell. First off – if this were Halle Berry, Taylor Swift, or Angelina Jolie, they would’ve worked overnight and had a dress ready by 1030 the next morning. I’m not buying into the idea that they have to spend so much more material to create a dress for a size 14 than they would for these size 4 broads. And, if you’re a DESIGNER and you’re complaining about how much it cost to make a SINGLE dress… either you’re in the wrong business, or you just not that good. Is the suggestion that the publicity you get from the runway NOT going to be enough to recoup the cost for the MATERIAL to make a dress in size 14?

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    I agree. Leslie didn’t even mention stylists in her tweet. but they obviously just wanted to get their names out there so they voiced their unsolicited opinions. if all of their clients are sample size customers, then clearly these two have nothing to offer Leslie, so why even chime in?

    We discussed this when this was a topic on Tuesday. Plenty of black comedians coon. Eddie Murphy been cooning since he was on SNL (Buckwheat anyone?) and is still currently cooning. He most recently, in recent years, got his ass dragged for the role of Donkey. 35 years of cooning. Mo’nique aint always been woke. Jamie Foxx either. Those last two went on to win Oscars. Nobody ever brings that up anymore tho on the last two.

    This sense of entitlement BS…. The designer was right… These are artist… Not a department store js … Let’s be real anything custom made takes time and prep.. Most designers shyt is for slim figures…. And to make demands because… Hell just go buy a damn dress or take up the offer ??

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This shyt is common damn knowledge as a woman… Hell same with Bras.. And shoes

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    There are two version to the extend women sizes. For instance a size 16 is cheaper than a 16W . Once you add that W you’re looking to pay at least an extra $5 to $10 for the item.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    I just said that. Its hard AF to find clothes for her. And just this summer. I told NakeyaJ. We cant do Children’s Place anymore. Bc of length. And its a mess bc even size 0 Jr’s girls, are too big in the waist etc. But they the length she needs. About to spend a lot of money getting clothes tailored.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Most designer pieces are made for height ! 5’11 and above…. I use to model.. Matter fact I was considered the shortest compared to others… For 5’9 top designers now… Height is not the issue…. Designers (artist) want their work promoted how they envisioned js…

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Wow. Tell Dub11 she needs a job to pay for her clothing budget.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    I see some people in here got a huge problem with bigger people in general. Which I’ve noticed many many times before. Listen not every women can be shapeless tissue boxed squares that can’t afford to gain any weight or else they’ll looking like an alcoholic. Not my fault all your weight goes to your belly and mines goes to my hips and thighs. I’m not into body shaming but I will light a fire under that ass.

  • felinelurker

    I can still do Children’s Place & Old Navy for him bc they carry slim. Feline14 was diff tho. She was a chunky monkey & short!. We had to move to Aeropostale & JCPenney. Thank God for puberty. Now, she’s 5’5, size 0-2.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    Im not sure how big boned Leslie can adjust then. She is just a big lady. Im not sure if losing weight, wearing flats etc gone fix her or any other tall shapely women issue in Hollywood. I just dont know.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    She isn’t fat but to some she is. Which is unfortunate because there isn’t anything wrong with her at all. Some people just have a problem with anyone (women) bigger than a size 6.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    +1.

    She is actually pretty toned. I know she is a former college athlete too.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    She doesn’t have to loose weight…. Find designers that compliment her… Simple…

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    It just happened recently. Like I blinked and from Christmas til June she had this growth spurt. But she grew UP. Not out lol. She is a rail.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    We did slims at both spots. Chile its a struggle.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Good fitting clothes will cost period… Stores like old navy… Nah with height…. I have to shop online.. 33 and 34 inseam… Etc… Quality … Hard to find in department stores so you know with a designer they will need time and prep… It’s common sense.. They market to certain body types…

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    which makes me kinda want to ask what the prollem really is? I mean she’s the same height as many of those gangly, man-ish, broad shouldered, eastern euro models, so that’s already half the battle, lol! I get it,but with models being 6′ and many actresses closer to 5′ designers are still having to accommodate the ‘real’ bodies of those beloved starlets. In the end I guess designers (and the expert stylists) can argue that it’s easier to chop off a whole foot of fabric from an existing dress than it is to start from scratch creating a size 10 version of a sample size… I guess, lol.

    I dont like body shaming bc I have been literally every damn size. A tall thin rail. An in between. Currently chilling at a 12. And I will say…its easier to find clothes as a bigger gal. Why?

I am not sure where the perception changes or changed at.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    you know, I always wondered if body shaming played a part in Forest Whitaker’s wife (Keisha?) losing all that weight. I thought she was a genuinely ‘bad gal’ before she lost the weight. and I certainly don’t want to body shame her new frame, but she looked just fine at her previous size.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    She was not fat at all. I read those comments like wow. Her legs and her bottom half were SKINNY. Her stomach was flat. All I saw was big titties. Which does not equate to fat.

  • felinelurker

    I can do NY & Co but sometimes want something a little more upscale/different. That’s basically my whole closet now

  • felinelurker

    Alright, since we’re talking about size, I have a question for you roses. Anyway, being a size 14, I am the biggest & tallest of my sisters & mother. I have a sister that lo-key tries to fat shame me (size 4, short, petite) but claims it’s for my health. When I try to slim down, bc of hard time finding clothes, Mr. asks me not to bc he likes it. How do you handle that? I personally am fine with my size

  • LibraGirlonly

    None of us know anything because we don’t know her personally. We are just stating an opinion. You know blog stuff. Maybe she did maybe she didn’t and she may be doing this for attention who knows.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    This is why this is a healthy conversation. This happens a lot. I am not sure how to handle it but hell I aint never had no man tell me get my size 12 ass up out the bed.

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    I know. But Over and over here folks keep saying she should ask a black designer. This is what she gets for not keepin it black. If she would ask her own then she woulda got the help she needs. How do we know she DIDNT? How do we know she is trying to fit in? Just rhetorical like you said. Blog stuff. I agree.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    girl as long as you are HEALTHY and your heart is strong, don’t you dare let ANYONE “shame” you. we all know belly fat is unhealthy and even my lil petite self is struggling with that! again, if you and your Mr like it, I love it! you sound like you might be a curvy girl, but nowhere near a BBW. I bet you slay hunty!

  • LibraGirlonly

    If you are fine with it that’s all that matters. I personally think there are lots of women who are not happy with their size including me. I am a size 10 and I don’t like it when people call me skinny. I don’t think I am skinny at 160 pds.

  • Fendi

    Leslie is under the false impression that, because she is going to co-star in Ghostbusters, people know who she is.

    It’s beyond creating a sample for her. Most of the time, I knew publicists to help get their clients clothes, especially when that client is making a name for themselves. Melissa McCarthy is well known and no one would dress her. A lot of people who are stars today couldn’t get garments from fashion houses back when, and they never whined.

    As one of the stylists said, buy your own garments. Christian is nice. If Leslie won’t take him up on his offer, then he shouldn’t work with her. Help someone deserving.

    P.S. I hope she solicits a hairdresser, too.

    Hey, how about that girl on facebook that made her own dress for prom? Perhaps she can create something in a size 14? (Size 14 ROCKS by the way.) Also, I appreciate Lesley speaking out about this issue…a closed mouth don’t get fed. Designers should be more prepared to design outside of their normal realm now…be more diverse…true creativity can’t be achieved from sinlge minded perspective. IMO

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    Ditto. To all of this. If you have a family history of health issues that can be brought on or exacerbated by weight, then that should be considered. But if that is not the case, or if it is, but doc has declared you healthy, then do what works for you. And your boo. Period.

  • felinelurker

    Lol, thank you! She tries to use the argument that this is not my natural size (I was so skinny & tall growing up) OK, I’m a grown woman now!

  • Jusstlookn

    Please don’t bring the baby in here during lunch hours, it’s like a pub. All kinds of trash talking, swearing. Early morning is best

  • felinelurker

    Curvy? The hips have been here since I was 16, even being skinny! When Mr brought me home to his parents in Georgia, even now, his own mama said she likes my figure.

    I saw that also. They did go in on her skin color and her weight. I was like wtf is wrong with our people as a whole? http://sandrarose.com/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_blink.gif

  • Jusstlookn

    Because she wants to be accepted. Maybe I’m right, but “those” designers don’t need to conform to her to be accepted. they in their sewing room right night getting high not EVEN thinking about her. MHO

  • felinelurker

    Well, it was a combination of medication & me not being active. Heck, taking Topamax daily, like I should have been doing, caused me to gain 20 lbs from Dec to Apr

  • jussaying

    thank you for stating this! i am on the thin side and have been that way all of my life [with the exception of my toddler years my family said they thought i’d be obese. apparently, i was like SUHPRISE MAFUGGA.] my dad is tall and slim so i’ve always had a fast metabolism. i think i get comments directed at me more than a big person and they are aggressive. when i was a teenager, it was especially hurtful because i was very lol pro-black and black dudes barely talked to me [lol although i learned later this was bc i am thin with resting bish face and have been told i look stuck up like wtf that even means idk].. so i went through life thinking something was wrong with me and tried to gain weight to no avail. i say, as long as you are healthy and like yourself fugg everyone else. but if you a big bish and you make a comment about my weight and how i need to eat, i’ma say some slick shit with no regard for your feelings so do not go and get in your feelings when i cut you down. that is all.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I believe this story.. I kind of felt this way from jump. You have to request early when you have a special body type or be willing to exclusively pay alot of money for a designer to only work on your one time piece. She needs to get to that fitting asap AND be willing to pay him for stepping up.

  • Locapoca

    I hate you so much ? But on a serious note @feline if your spouse ain’t complaining AND if you’re comfortable in your size. stay happy and healthy. I’m a size 9/10 so I’m a curvy chic as well. Wouldn’t change it for nothing ??. http://i.imgur.com/rcIiB7g.jpg

    I had a coworker, who is still 120 after 4 kids that says she HATES when ppl call her skinny. Said it makes her feel the same as calling someone fat. I was like wow, never saw it that way.

    So you saying we’re gonna be left for dead come Friday afternoon through Monday, right?

    i ain’t know it was that serious!!! she should probably do a lil bit more research on the industry before stepping out like that.

  • jussaying

    exactly, and i don’t understand [in most things] why in order to uplift something, we have to put down another. it is possible for multiple things to be great you know?

    i only know her from the car commercial but i hear she’s been around for some time. folk don’t know her like that.

    Think you told me that.. Folks didn’t want to pay huh?

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    I was picked on until I was about mid twenties. Called Olive Oyl as a child. Skinny Minne. You name it. It was real hurtful. Which is why I dont give a rats ass now as a 12. Took me a long time to realize I am ME.

  • kennedy campbell

    remember that stuff is edited. And it’s not completely done…they give the appearance though. I live with two designers and work in tv…most of the reality shows edit to give the illusion

  • Da Puppet Mistress

    My fam, especially my cousins were the WORSE

  • felinelurker

    Yes! He was just telling me last week that most Black men don’t want really skinny women. They want curves, not a little boy, lol

  • free

    my co-worker told me about this.

  • kennedy campbell

    no kidding..

  • Locapoca

    that sounds great ?? Can’t remember the last time I’ve had that privilege either

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    so you’re saying it really takes a year to do a season because an outfit actually takes 2 months to make?
    yeah, i happen to know real seamstresses. not so.

  • jussaying

    yes, it does! there’s a lot of microaggressions that thin people deal with because thinness is glorified in the fashion industry, and as a response to that there’s so much rhetoric about ‘REAL’ women looking a certain way.. as if those of us who do happen to look like the models aren’t real either.

  • felinelurker

    That sounds like a good size, Libra

  • NegroDamus

    she shoulda took her tall ass to lane bryant like everybody else.

  • jussaying

    i think your sister probably has some insecurities about herself. people who have to put others down constantly have something they are lacking. she’s probably envious of you in some way. i have a younger cousin who is like that and she’s just weird. she likes to compete with me. when she tells me stuff i’m just like, ok cool story. good for you. and go on about my business.

  • kennedy campbell

    remember some of that is edited….my bf is a designer and sometimes you do lose out if the client decides they don’t want it and youve wasted your time sketching, making the pattern and then making the sample dress and then making the actual dress…some of these designers don’t have production so it’s them all the way through sewing by hand and machine. as for me i work as a videographer and reality tv is edited for the illusion

  • felinelurker

    . she’s probably envious of you in some way
    —————————————————-
    Mr has been saying this. Even though she has a nice paying job, 6 figures, she’s single & complain about not being able to find a man. Then she goes on her “men ain’t shyt” rant. Meanwhile, my size 14 butt & Mr bout to cuddle…

  • kennedy campbell

    they can whip it out if they have the budget to lose out on money should she decide she’s not going to take the dress…many pay half up front….you finish the dress and they don’t like it and their goes your time that you could have been working on someone else.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    This is true. I once said hello “skinny girl” to someone at work and she said she wasn’t sure if I meant it as a compliment. I assured her I did, but I still apologized. *awkward*

  • NegroDamus

    not sure i know a chick with an ample bosom shop in there and they had a tall section i think

    Maybe she shoulda waited til a black designer volunteered, instead of that damn Jap who stepped up to help her. (Tadashi Shoji)

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    What’s strange is they could dress Adele short stubby @ss. Leslie has a better shape then she does. It’s simply all about the looks. Fukkc fashion, that’s why I do my own thing. What the public need to understand……just because it has a (high end) label in it doesn’t make it right.

  • Li

    This Lesley woman is turning into a big time Diva isn’t she? Why doesn’t she just go to Lane Bryant where Siriano has some gorgeous clothes; or the Avenue; or any off the rack big-girl store, choose a dress and take it to a tailor? Has Lesley heard of Rent the Runway?
    I’ve seen many red carpet actresses wear just common label clothes from J. Crew, Zara, etc. and when asked what they’re wearing, they’ll say “Ralph Lauren” or some common label brand.
    This is much ado about nothing. It could be a communications problem also. Maybe Lesley doesn’t have the right people working for her, or the right people who can get what she wants.

  • Li

    All she has to do is call him, communicate with him. That’s all he’s asking.
    She comes off as a big-time diva.

  • Li

    Lesley can get an “off the rack” dress. She’s just too lazy to shop. I’m sure there are plenty of African dress shops in NYC she can visit. She should have designers in her rollodex.

  • NegroDamus

    Nope, not him.

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    well this is what I learned a long time ago… when yt women voice their desires in a straightforward manner, they are being “assertive” “passionate” and “go-getters” – this is admirable and good.
    When We do the same, we are being “aggressive” “difficult” and “hard to get along with” – this won’t be tolerated.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

  • Sriracha In My Bag,

    Oh bullshyt! If it was someone with a bigger name, in the words of Tim Gunn, they’d “make it work”. If you only do dresses for models, STFU and let Leslie vent because she’s not your clientele in the first place.

  • Luvbug

    In this day In age of makeup sorcery she could get her makeup done better than that????she isn’t ugly but that makeup is hideous lol

  • Hmmm~?

    They were saying that they need more time in advance to make a dress in her size. She waited until the last second, hence why no one wants to work with her. Reading comprehension.

  • BaybeK8s

    Leslie should just contact the people who dressed her for Montre’s wedding.

  • Junkanoo

    So she was whining and complaining about nothing ?! So many designers would jump at the chances to dress her for the red carpet maybe not huge designer names but some one . Celebrity’s get on my nerves they expect so much for free and often times use their influence to gripe about frivolous nonsense. Jog on whiny ding bat she’s a diva in training

  • ramosyo

    Get a lil movie and wanna act like she is an A lister

  • Nancy Drew on my ibrowse today

    I know and understand what THEY were saying. I said she wasn’t directing her comment at the stylists, but at the designers.

    Hello ?

  • Crazy tee

    Don’t sleep on this guy. He is very good designer….

  • Crazy tee

    Goo goo would have worked too but she is a stylist not sure if she designs too….

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Also, often their clientele don’t want to be seen in the same dress of someone of her size. Lupita wouldn’t have problem, last minute or not because she was headed for her Oscar win and she’s small! It amazes me the sizes will often only go to a size 12 if that for some designer duds. Leslie’s not the only one, funny lady Melissa McCarthy, Octavia Spencer, and others also made the same complaint. I hope she goes with Christian because it’ll get her some print work, and possibly her own line…turning her lemons into lemonade!

  • Genia W-m

    Oh, please. When someone doesn’t respond use the tired old word, ‘racist.’ The exact same thing happened to Melissa McCarthy before the Golden Globes and she already had a TV show. Seems the designers don’t chase after larger sized women or barely unknowns. I never heard of this woman until I read another article about her. It also said several Black designers offered their services but she didn’t respond.

    Exactly! Those stylists are lying. I can’t stand when dizzy white woman try to explain away their blatant racism. They would design and hand sew a custom made dress on two hour notice for a Scarlet Johannsen but they need six months for Leslie? It doesn’t matter what size Leslie is her dress is more than a sample its history as the black female lead in a white A list Hollywood sequel. Leslie’s right to tell them she’ll remember because if she gets an Oscar nod for comedy role then the same lying racist white designers will beg to design for the oscars red carpet.

    She’s black enough, j/k

  • eljjai

    is that her?

  • Miss Thang

    Christian is a fabulous designer and a very sweet person, and I’m sure it would be a pleasure for anyone to have him design something for them. I think the year he won Project Runway was the last year I watched that show.

  • Mssugamoma

    “Lemonade” ?

  • Ed

    She’s an ugly woman, there’s just no way around that.

    I saw that episode on Youtube yesterday. I’ve never heard of Leslie Jones until last month when I found out she is the loud mouth, uncouth woman in those TV commercials. One of the Youtube viewers, Elizabeth D, left this comment that I agree with:

    “Honestly watching Leslie feels like watching a modern day minstrel show, like just pandering to “Sassy Black Woman” stereotypes to make white people laugh.. but okay sis do your thing.?”

  • yoni

    It’s BONE SKRAIT. LOL

  • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

    Ahhh Elizabeth D probably has her own set of issues ?

    Les is funny comedian/writer and now she acting…

    I mean I’m glad that she has work in that rough tough industry But IONO ??? how I feel about that skit, and yes I laughed ?

  • Alisa

    Why is she begging?? I would find a new designer, stylist, glam squad. Give them a chance to shine most of them have more talent & skills and are hungry. I think if you get a chance at fame or your successful in your career you should help someone else. People get a taste of fame or success and forget what it was like to wish someone would give them a chance. Can you imagine her showing up looking amazing she would get crazy press by using talent no one else has used. It’s also a reality check for her she might be on tv and in this movie but no one is going to come looking for you if your still a “nobody” She is not that special so I hope she comes down off this high horse and try to remain humble.

  • Branch Davidian

    Jesus Christ! She looks like one of the Easter Island statues with red lipstick!

  • cd cd

    …also..”running out of time” is a reality tv fav.

  • Taylordanes

    That’s a tv show. With a budget! Samples are costly and designers do need time!

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    shut up until you know what you’re talking about. thanks.

  • Taylordanes

    Are you a teenager? “Shut up” really. I have worked in the clothing manufacturing industry so I do “know” …your most welcome

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    customer service agents have no idea. I’ve had clothes custom made by real seamstresses since i was a child. had uniforms made because i was too tiny for the sizes factory made at my prep school. never took a month much more 2 months.

    therefore, again, stfu!

  • Taylordanes

    I’m not sure what a customer service agent has to do with anything or why I would need to stfu… I have worked with real seamstresses as well and those at THAT CALIBER FOR A CELEBRITY EVENT WITH PRESS. Not for your basic little prep school uniforms sweety. All that anger should be redirected as this is an open forum and many peoples opinion differ from yours. No need to be basic and rude. I currently have custom clothes made for me as well especially during my pregnancy so again I bid you adeu

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    you’re an idiot

  • Taylordanes

    And your a child with a lack of a vocabulary or any interaction skills…. Again I bid your angry ass Adeu!!! And the sad part is you big mad ???????

  • Ms Leone

    Love love love Christian Siriano ???

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    And you’re ghetto with that ‘is you mad’, idiot. Enjoy your holiday. Eat some meat and die faster. :)

  • Taylordanes

    Naw sweetie ghetto is a word describing a place. Not a person and I DO NOT eat flesh of any kind. Poor baby in her feelings……

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    no, you’re a ghetto rat

  • MsVida

    She just needs an Esthetician. Maybe a lactic peel. Or good old microderm to turnover and get some circulation going. Some lymphatic drainage massage to get rid of that puffiness. Then a nice custom masque to bring it all together. We make miracles in the treatment room. She can afford it.

  • darealwifey

    I can see how she got her feelings hurt. It sounds like there is a way things work in the industry, and she just didn’t know, but that is not to excuse fashion-bigotry based on size. But seriously, find a designer who works with all body-types and support them.

  • Erica C

    Get creative. http://goo.gl/BCTHsN
    That’s 18 haute couture dresses for less than $8.

  • Admiral Rusty Schackleford

    Fashon people be rasis yo!

  • PaulyG4

    You don’t get why people call her ugly? Are you completely insane?

  • Make this happen.

    There’s a bottle of bleach waiting for you to drink. Go gulp it down lol.

  • PaulyG4

    I don’t know what’s worse, your “humor” or your taste.

  • Your hate is your reflection.

    It’s not that serious. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For example, i’m sure there are people who think you’re ugly, while others might disagree. So it is what it is. With that said, get a life, because it’s clear you don’t have one.

    Enjoy your day.

  • PaulyG4

    So, it is your humor then.

  • Your hate is your reflection.

    ? wait a min, so you’re going to UP VOTE yourself for the second time with your second account lol wtf. You’re a crazy bit#h, be gone ?

  • PaulyG4

    Nice deflection.
    Also, nice imagination. How stupid do you have to be to not realize that people have followers and those followers upvote the comments of the people they follow? So, I guess you can add “intelligence level” to the previous question that I posed.

  • Your hate is your reflection.

    ? Sure bit#h. With your pathetic crazy @ss. Go take your meds lol. With that said, go up vote yourself with your second account. Or better yet, reply with it. ?

    Its so obvious you live a sad life, it’s unfortunate. By the way, you’re now officially blocked.

  • PaulyG4

    Still deflecting and projecting, coonie?

  • Monkey Bubbles

    She is NOT ugly!!! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. She’s just not YOUR type. You prob aren’t desirable either!

  • Monkey Bubbles

    She is NOT ugly!!! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. She’s just not YOUR type. You prob aren’t very desirable either!
