Somewhere along the way, the fashion industry got stuck on the notion that only one female body type is fit for the red carpet. Luckily, celebrities are starting to point out the discriminatory practice of couture sizing. Leslie Jones, Christian Siriano, Tim Gunn, and many more influential personalities have been speaking out, and as the Emmys approached, Saturday Night Live star Aidy Bryant tweeted that having cool clothes for all sizes “seems like a fairly basic request.”

Shortly thereafter, design house Eloquii reached out to her stylist and asked if they could design her dress for the Emmys.

The custom dress she wore to the Emmys was glamorous, classic, flirty, flattering and totally vamp-glam.

When providing her input and preferences to the design team, she told them she likes short but not too short and prefers comfort.

We are IN LOVE with what she and her designers came up with. Lucky for us, we’ll be able to buy it soon.

If ever there was an appropriate moment to use #yesqueen, this is it. #yesqueen
