Fresh off a notable 50th birthday, Leslie Jones was still in celebration mode as she attended this year’s NYFW. In a now viral video Leslie brought her big personality and love to the front row of the Christian Siriano spring 2018 fashion show. While wearing her own Christian Siriano outfit, Leslie cheered on models as they walked down the runway.
And it was a delight. Fabulous. Exhilarating. It was a gust of fresh air into an industry that too often sucks the pleasure out of a something that should be, if not fun, then at least not like surgery without anesthesia. Oh, sure, Jones, the “Saturday Night Live” comedian, was not working, unlike many of the people in the audience. She was not racing around town from one show to another and trying to take appointments in between.
Model Coco Rocha was able to capture her moment with Leslie during the show, giving us an idea that Leslie should be invited to more shows.
