Leslie Jones isn’t having the best year when it comes to her bod — first, she couldn’t find a designer to dress her non-stick-thin frame for the Ghostbusters premiere (props to Christian Siriano for coming to the rescue). Then, her website was hacked and nude photos of her were leaked online.
But she’s bounced back in a major way. And why shouldn’t she? She’s beautiful, talented, and utterly hilarious.
Her radiance was on display last night at the 2016 American Museum of Natural History Museum Gala, to which she wore a $440 Badgley Mischka cocktail dress. Oh, and in case she wasn’t relatable enough already, her stylist Brian Mcphatter told Yahoo Style this dress was straight off the rack. The tight eggplant frock featured cutouts on her collarbone and down the middle of her chest, showing a hint of cleavage. She paired it with a bedazzling Judith Leiber box clutch and strappy Vince Camuto heels. Her hair, which usually sticks straight up, was styled a little softer for the evening, and her makeup was full-on glam with lipstick that matched her dress and long false eyelashes.
We aren’t the only ones who noticed how gorgeous she looked last night; she was feeling pretty good about herself as well.
With all her boisterous work on Saturday Night Live, we don’t get to see this side of Jones that often, but we love when we do.
