Will inclusive fashion ever break the cycle of taking one step forward and two steps back? Perhaps it would if more celebrities were as vocal about the problem as "Saturday Night Live" star Leslie Jones. The comedian who's hitting the big screen in this summer's all-female "Ghostbusters" reboot recently graced the cover of ELLE magazine — but, apparently, that isn't enough to open doors in the designer world.

It's a shame that the fashion industry is still turning its back on stars that aren't a sample size.

Especially an actress of color who is truly in her prime (girl is headlining one of summer's biggest blockbusters) and would be getting truckloads of glittery couture were she thin and white. 

When Jones tweeted that she was in need of a dress for a film premiere, she heard crickets.


But at least one designer has some sense.

Thirty-year-old "Project Runway" alum Christian Siriano quickly piped up to volunteer a dress.

Coincidentally, Siriano just released a diffusion line with Lane Bryant.   

“I love Leslie and can’t wait to make her something fabulous to wear. I dress and support women of all ages and sizes,” the designer told TIME. 

Funny enough, Siriano has made headlines for trying to dress Jones' costar, Melissa McCarthy.

McCarthy said that no one would dress her for the 2012 Oscars in an interview with Redbook magazine. And then Siriano came out and said that he'd offered to dress her, but had difficulties agreeing with her stylist on a design. 

We can't wait to see what Siriano conjures up for Jones.

She deserves the very best for calling out the fashion industry on their B.S.
