From her see-through birthday dress to her sultry "Ghostbusters" gown, Leslie Jones has been serving LOOKS lately. Of course, her road to being a red carpet stunner hasn't been an easy one. As a tall, non-sample size woman, she's been honest about how few designers have been willing to dress her for the red carpet.

All those hater-y designers are clearly suffering in their rejection today. Because when Jones hit the Emmys red carpet in a custom Christian Siriano gown, she dropped jaws.

Leslie's red carpet slay was FLAWLESS. That dress! That sparkle! My goodness. I felt honored to have witnessed such a magical Black girl moment.

After Jones dealt with designers refusing to dress her last year for the "Ghostbusters" premiere, we're sure they're regretting their decision now. Once again, the combination of Jones and Siriano showed the world that women of all sizes have the right to slay in whatever style they choose. 

Her look was styled by Brian McPhatter, who also helped envision Jones' unforgettable "Ghostbusters" red gown. McPhatter definitely knows what he's doing!

Close-up, Jones' hair and beauty look was pretty stellar, too.

Jones' faux hawk was slicked into a sleek pompadour by Dennis Bailey. Her makeup was kept simple as well, with a nude lip and defined brow game. She paired her sheer black gown with statement earrings from Chris Aire, but the dress and her megawatt smile definitely stole the show.

Twitter definitely loved Jones' bold look as well.

She's definitely Twitter's pick for "best dressed," which is something I can totally get behind.

Others celebrated her for proving funny women can serve fashionable looks, too. YES, WOMEN ARE STYLISH AND HILARIOUS, WE ARE MULTIFACETED.

Jones' risk-taking has clearly paid off. Not only was her look body positive, but it dispelled ridiculously ageist myths.

Women are often told to wear something "age-appropriate" instead of what they like. Just because you're 50 doesn't mean you can't show off your body. It's almost as if the older women get, the less they're allowed to be seen. *eye roll*

Jones' appearance at the Emmys definitely broke those outdated practices. Live your best life, Leslie!
