AceShowbiz - Tiffany Haddish is refusing to stop wearing the Alexander McQueen dress she wore to the "Girls Trip" premiere and the Oscars, because it cost the same as a "down payment on a car." The thrifty star bought the white gown, which she also wore while hosting comedy show "Saturday Night Live", when a stylist she hired for her "Girls Trip" promotional tour last year (2017) advised her to spend "a little money" on her look to get to the next level in her career.
The actress and comedienne tells the new issue of W magazine she spent $4,122 (GBP2,900) on the dress and doesn't care what the fashion police think about her decision to rewear it. "I hired a stylist for 'Girls Trip', and she said, 'Girl, if you're trying to make it to the next level in your career, you're going to have to spend a little money'," she recalls. "I said, 'I'm down to look my best. Whatever it takes.' "
"I should've known - (there) wasn't no price tag on that dress. So I wear it for 'Girls Trip', and then they give me the receipt. When I saw the receipt, I cried. The dress was $4,122! So I'm wearing it multiple f**king times. I don't care what nobody say - that's a down payment on a car, that's a medical bill. So, even though everyone says I shouldn't wear the dress in public again, I'm wearing it."
She recently revealed she is planning to recycle the white gown when she hosts the 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards in June, adding, "You will see that again! I gotta wear it multiple times because I gotta get my money's worth and I haven't been paid not one time that I wore the dress yet."
"I been spending money every time so I need to like, get paid, so I'm probably gonna wear it to the MTV Movie & TV Awards when I host that."
