Leslie Jones Hosts the MTV Movie & TV Awards in Air Jordan 1s

Leslie Jones stole the show at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday night in Los Angeles. The comedian and actress was host for the evening, and she had multiple outfit changes.

To start, the 53-year-old hit the stage in a casual look, sporting a graphic T-shirt and shimmering pants. Jones completed the look in Air Jordan 1s. She wore the Air Jordan 1 Retro High “Volt Gold” sneakers, which featured contrasting hues of neon yellow and metallic gold-tone.

The kicks are currently available on Farfetch.com and retail for $285.

During the show, she took home the award for Best Comedic Performance for her role in “Coming 2 America.” In the film, Jones starred alongside Eddie Murphy as Mary, the mother Prince Akeem never knew he had.

Later on at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, Jones made a quick change wearing a bold, statement-making zebra-print suit and classic black pumps.
