Foxy lady! Leslie Jones stunned at the Los Angeles premiere of Ghostbusters in Los Angeles on Saturday, July 9, in a custom-made red dress by Project Runway alum Christian Siriano.

Jones, 48, showed off her curves in the off-the-shoulder, bright red, floor-length gown, which included a high-cut slit that showed off her toned legs and a train that channeled old Hollywood glamour.

“I feel amazing,” the Saturday Night Live actress exclusively told Us. “Christian hooked me up! Christian Siriano hooked me up.”

Jones added that working with the designer was a breeze, especially given the quick turnaround they had to get the gown ready in time for the premiere.

“We just talked and he just knows a woman's body!” she gushed to Us. “He knew what to make for me and he did good! I love it.”

Siriano, 30, was similarly pleased with the results, sharing a sweet collage of Jones on social media, with the caption: "Now that's how you do it! Simple, elegant and chic!!" 

Jones made headlines at the end of June when she tweeted that no designers were willing to help dress her for the Ghostbusters movie premiere.

“It’s so funny how there are no designers wanting to help me with a premiere dress for movie,” she wrote on June 28. “Hmmmm that will change and I remember everything.”

Shortly afterward, Siriano came to the rescue, tweeting a simple waving hand emoji to get Jones’ attention. Her reply? “YAAAAAASSSSSSS.”

The pair met up two days later to get to work on designing the gown, and both Siriano and Jones posted fun photos from their meeting to social media.

“Up to no good,” the designer jokingly captioned a shot of the pair scheming among a bunch of gorgeous gowns in Siriano’s Manhattan-based atelier.

Siriano wasn’t at Jones’ premiere on Saturday, however; the designer tied the knot with his longtime love, Brad Walsh, that same day, in a romantic ceremony in Danbury, Connecticut.
