The "Saturday Night Live" comic captured attention last month when she took to social media to call out the fact that many top designers had declined to dress her for the film's premiere. Really? A major movie filled with stars, and an "SNL" regular, yet nobody wanted to pitch in?
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
Calling out the industry worked — "Project Runway" veteran Christian Siriano immediately replied that he would love to work with her. It was a match made in heaven, resulting in a stunning, floor-length red number for Leslie that allowed her to get a little leggy.
It shouldn't be exceptional to work with brilliant people just because they're not sample size. Congrats aren't in order, a change is.

Leslie has vowed to "remember everything," so here's hoping she continues working with Siriano in the future, or do what co-star and fellow plus-sized actress Melissa McCarthy did and start her own fashion line.
"Extra" caught up with Leslie and the cast on the red carpet. Watch!
