It’s Leslie Jones’ fault that she couldn’t get a designer dress to the “Ghostbusters” premiere, according to a stylist. After the American comedienne recently tweeted how no one would want to dress her, “Project Runway” winner Christian Siriano stepped in.

On Wednesday, Jones, who is about 6’0” tall, posted on Twitter that there were no fashion designers willing to lend her a dress for the premiere of a film, presumably “Ghostbusters.”

Siriano replied to her tweet, later confirming he would be helping Jones with her fashion dilemma. Other products also replied, asking Jones if she would wear their brand.

Jones even contemplated naming the designers who refused to dress her, but has yet to follow up with her threat.

However, according to one stylist, it was Jones’ own fault that she did not have designers willing to dress her for her film’s premiere. Celebrity stylist Jessica Paster told Pret-a-Reporter that as Jones isn’t a sample size, she should have asked designers months ahead so they could prepare.

“This is nobody’s fault except Leslie’s,” she said. “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.”

The Hollywood Reporter power stylist Jeanne Young added that it would not be economical for designers to have clothes in all sizes.

“For something as big as the Oscars or when you are given enough time, designers may lay out the expense of creating something,” she explained. “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 US$5,000 to US$10,000 for a dress that’s not worn. It can be the death of a line.”

As it turned out, Jones’ team indeed asked designers for months if they could lend the 48-year-old “Saturday Night Live” star a dress. They were rejected.

Jones’ “Ghostbusters” co-star, Melissa McCarthy, also suffered from the same problem before. In a 2014 interview with Redbook magazine, she revealed she had to start her own plus-size clothing line because nobody wanted to dress her as well.

“When I go shopping, most of the time I’m disappointed. Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers – very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people – and they all said no,” McCarthy said.

Unlike in Jones’ case, however, Siriano didn’t come to McCarthy’s rescue. He even slammed the “Bridesmaids” actress for being “difficult.”

“We met with her people. She and her stylist chose the fabric and the beading,” the designer told the New York Daily News. “Quite frankly, she was quite difficult to work with. She wanted some specific things that I thought would not look good on her body. And she was not comfortable with them in the end.”
