When Leslie Jones threw a non-sample sized side-eye at the designers who refused to dress her for the Hollywood premiere of Ghostbusters, many tricks said some shit like, “Use that Ghostbusters money to buy your own damn dress!” To which I said, “FOR WHY?” First of all, unless Leslie bought something classic like The Slut Dress (Never 4Get), she might be able to wear her Ghostbusters premiere dress again. Second of all, the designer will get some press out of it. Third of all, if some trick from Vanderpump Rules can get her hands on a borrowed dress for an event, so should Leslie Jones. Fourth of all, even my cousin, who is a regular like us, gets big name designers to dress her for events. And yes, by “gets big name designers to dress her for events,” I mean she buys a dress from T.J. Maxx and returns it the next day.
Newly married Christian Siriano offered to dress Leslie and this is what they came up with. Allison mentioned the iconic Snobby Saleswoman #2 in her post about this, and Leslie is definitely serving up some “Big mistake. Big. HUGE.” glamour. It’s very “Vivian Ward going to the opera” and Leslie really should’ve gone all the way. Leslie should’ve worn long white gloves with it. You know, the gloves that Vivian only wore because she knew she’d have to pull gerbils out of Edward Lewis’ culo hole later that night.
In other Ghostbusters news, despite the trailer looking like a dried-up Slimer dingle, the critics say that it’s not awful. It’s gotten mixed to very positive reviews and many critics say that Kate McKinnon’s performance is worth the price of a ticket. I still don’t know if I’m going to see Ghostbusters this weekend for the sole fact that none of the reviews I read mentioned a scene where a naked Chris Hemsworth gets slimed in slow-motion for 10 minutes straight. What’s the point of casting Thor in a Ghostbusters movie if you’re not going to shoot a scene where he gets slimed while naked for 10 minutes straight? That’s like casting Alexander Skarsgard at Tarzan and not putting him a loin cloth. Boggled: The mind is.
Here’s many more pictures from the premiere including some of ANNIE POTTS and Todd Chrisley (hey, every premiere needs a seat filler) who looked like Slimer if Slimer got a skin graft from a wax figure.
