Tiffany Haddish

Tiffany Haddish went back on her promise to continue wearing the white Alexander McQueen dress she wore to the Girls Trip premiere and the Oscars, because the dress cost the same as a "down payment on a car".

The thrifty comedienne purchased the designer gown when a stylist she hired for her Girls Trip promotional tour last year 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 on the dress and didn't care what the fashion police thought about her decision to continue wearing it to awards shows to get her money's worth.

"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 tells W magazine, "You will see that [dress] 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.

Haddish, who also wore the dress while hosting Saturday Night Live, said, "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."

But after all the hype, she didn't wear the dress to the 2018 CinemaCon Big Screen Achievement Awards on Thursday, where she was the recipient of the Female Star of Tomorrow award in Las Vegas.

Instead, she settled for an affordable yet chic grey sparkly sleeveless jumpsuit with open toe sandals.

What do you think of Tiffany's low budget look?

    Why is this news again?????

  • hi-liter

    Sandra you know good and well you can not take everything a commedian says literally. She had prolly worn that dress more times than she wanted. She’s making money now so maybe some of these designers will start dressing her (for free) and hopefully not treat her like they did Leslie Jones.

  • Sid

    Happy Friday to everyone. It’s also payday.
    I am going with my sexy nerd to watch Infinity Wars tonight. I’m going to bring my big purse with a box of wings from Wingstop so my baby can eat his wings and fries lol. Catch me on the flipside


    Ummm ... I like the jumper. Reminds me of Michael Jackson's glove.

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    I think she looks smoking hot in both things. The jumpsuit would have been even hotter if it didn’t show her feet. I love pants that don’t cover the feet. I love her hair with the jumpsuit. When I scrolled and saw the ugg slippers though?

  • PhillyFacts

    I congradulate this sister on her success, but I’m simply not a fan.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Stay smart with your money girl.. Don't go broke trying to look rich..

  • Roxie Moxie

    Yeah, me neither. I tried, but something about her screams hoodrat who happened to get on.

  • Coy little wink

    She probably got a stain on it...that's what happens when I wear white so I usually don't purchase white clothes

  • FukkFolks2018

    I like her jumpsuit, she looks nice, and congrats to you Tiff!!!

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    She like Kim K to me. Like what is the hype? Wat has she done?

  • Scromes1212

    4 grand is a lot for a down payment on a car. She must have bad credit lol

  • Tiff J

    Her hair is cute in the jumpsuit look. I thought stylist got free clothes for clients, that they had to return once the event was over? Maybe Tiff wasn't at that level yet to be getting free dresses, so she has to buy the white gown. But she should be at the level to get free things now.

  • TheThrowbackBeauty

    Well at least she’s been in a couple of movies. I don’t find her funny but she does work. I really don’t know what any of the Ks do. They don’t be in movies. They don’t sing and dance. I’m really lost!

  • Guest

    Yes she does. The dark lipstick works for her.

  • FukkFolks2018

    She is just extra pretty to me.

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    updo's like this make me sad.

  • T3

    I love the jumpsuit! Great choice. Do your thing Tiff! Milk your 15 minutes boo! Gotta get it while the getting is good! I like her!

  • Mrs. Joyce

    I know how you feel.

  • Stationarity

    Or she is wants a better interest rate? Or is buying a high priced car?

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Infinity Wars was good!

  • hi-liter

    She is also on a really good show on TBS starring her, Tracy Morgan and Cedric the Entertainer called The Last OG, it’s really worth watching.

  • Connie


  • Simone

    I loved Girls Trip... However in concert with Chris Rock, Tiffany was not funny at all...just over exaggerating and loud. She tries too hard! Wish her well though! Get that money while you can.

  • hi-liter

    Looks like she did it herself.

  • Connie

    She looks good! I like the jumpsuit

  • Ms.Devereaux

    I like it! Plus these black celebrities shouldn’t wear shiiit they ain’t get for free or paid to wear wanna know why? Here’s a good example kash doll isn’t always in designer clothes that’s all she talks about in her songs she shot her video for a new song she released and is now reediting the whole video to blur out all the designer stuff because Luis and Gucci wouldn’t sign off in her wearing the shiiit she purchased in her dam video that she paying for ????? When will all learn! Meanwhile women getting choke slammed by the police for disputing paying for plastic utensils down to the Waffle House

  • Scromes1212

    I guess lol

  • Ms.Devereaux

    DID anybody catch the Kelis interview she did about Nas? ????? Smh

  • HalleMerry

    Lol! Me too! I'm currently sipping on Patron so I'm the right amount of buzzed 2 act like I care! I'm sneaking in a spicy chicken deluxe from Chick Fil A?? Enjoy your date!

  • Joy King

    Honestly, it depends on the car because before she said the price I was thinking more like 10 or 15 thousand. The more money you put down the less the car note even with excellent credit.

  • hi-liter

    Gucci and LV wouldn’t sign off on stuff she purchased with her own coins? Could the goods be counterfeit?

  • Logan Roberts

    Damn I had forgot all about Leslie since Tiffany came on the scene.

  • Logan Roberts

    Baby don't go broke trying to keep up with Hollywood. Diana Ross still shop at Marshall & so would I if I was rich.

  • Guess Who

    no comment

  • Scromes1212

    That's true, I think I was just thinking about interest rates

  • Fire & Ice

    That's how I felt when I saw girls trip. She's really not that funny...just loud!

  • Applebootay

    low budget look?
    I'm sure that jumpsuit is more than my mortgage.

  • Allihave2say

    And some of those stores, Marshall's, TJ Maxx, Macy's and even Ross have really nice formal wear. Back in the days of old Foley's had a bottom basement sale where they sold designer dresses for nearly nothing. Twice a year they had a show clearance shoes that retailed for $100's were so for $10/$20. You can look fabulous without going broke.

    Why up all the white designers who are already famous and wealthy. Why not help some upcoming black designer lines?

  • Applebootay

    I think she's here for the long term....

  • Applebootay


  • Ms.Devereaux

    that thought crossed my mind. BUT I thought due to trademark and copyright stuff you can’t wear certain ppl brands unless authorized idk much about the legalities on those types of things but I have noticed where in some videos in the past certain name brands are blurred out From bottled water to clothes but I never knew the reason behind it????? For example sometimes I may report a video on IG that has someone’s song in it and it’s been flagged and took down due to copyright heck I’ve even posted real videos and it’s been taken down for the same reason so idk how that works at all. That’s also something else I will be education myself on

  • Applebum

    Why did I read that in her voice. Ugh. She looks nice in the white dress. I guess her holding her heels and wearing her home slippers on stage was supposed to be funny? Why must she be obnoxious whenever she’s on stage? Ugh

  • Dowoop

    Geez...just because she said she will wear it multiple times doesn't mean she has to wear it EVERYTIME.

  • Shira Harding-James

    We went last night! Lol

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    GIVE Me that JUMPSUIT! Damn!

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    I don't think Tiff is like that. I betcha she won't end up broke. She came up broke, so she knows the value of a $$.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Hard to know the truth, but I did notice that she hit back.

  • Ms.Devereaux

    That part of the reason I believe her story because she continued to say that she is not an angel she did hit back they BOTH drank but he drank more than her and had an issue with drinking she said they were both young. She accepted responsibility for her actions I just felt she was sincere in the interview plus I feel like she could have BEEEEEN saying things and doing interviews years ago but she didn’t that’s another reason I believe her. I do feel like she is trying to limit and control how much he sees their son and I feel it’s based on him being inconsistent with visits. But time will tell I feel she some the truth for the most part or from her point of view

  • Chocolate Bliss

    She said she's giving the dress to a charity to auction it off for prom dresses for underprivileged girls, or auctioning it off to buy foster kids suitcases, because she always had to pack her things in garbage bags every time she went to a new foster home.

  • luVn_liFe…

    that is very sad :(

  • Lolly Asher

    In the first pic she's looking a little Simone Biles-ish holding a medal.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I believe this. When I saw 'the boss' getting into a Chrysler 300 I damn near choked. I'm sure she has more than one vehicle, but I never though it would be so regular. So yes, I believe the Marshall's bit.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    No you did NOT clump Macy's in with these other stores. I bind you Satan.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    I want her to win, but I don't find her funny. I will watch a tv show or program because she's on it, but it would be nice to laugh.

  • Smith Jane

    Naw, don’t believe the hype. Kelis is only doing this now because Nas is taking her to court for custody. Kelis has been blocking Nas’s visitation rights since the kid was born. Now, Kelis is trying to get more child support while limiting Nas’s custodial rights. Dudes have got to be careful with who they breed with. Chicks are vindicative and will demolish your reputation just to suck some coins out of you.

  • Logan Roberts

    They actually showed Diana leaving Marshall on TMZ a couple of months ago.

  • Logan Roberts

    Maybe ?

  • Logan Roberts

    Lol. ?

  • Allihave2say

    What?!?! What I do? I'm just talking about bargains.

  • zero options

    Mr. blackwell agrees with you!

  • Guest©

    The nerve, lol.

  • Jussjess25

    I heard something is wrong with tiffany, like mentally?? Anybody know anything about this.. seriously asking

  • Malcom Flex

    Something is a bit off about her. Not her manufactured 'book in a box' biography. She reminds me of those deeply nutty hood chicks who cut and fight.

  • Malcom Flex

    On God, I just read what you wrote, we thinking the same thing. Read what I wrote above you.

  • brooklyn23

    You are too cute

  • ?Royalty?

    That's exactly how I feel about Chris Rock. Not funny, over exaggerated and loud as all get out.

    They must've got along great. ?

  • Dora LaBelle

    Um...because she's a comedian?

  • Not a Housewife & Neither RU

    Undiagnosed mental health issues are abundant in Hollywood. Considering what she shared in her book, she's definitely experienced TRAUMA and I'm proud she chose to channel that into comedy and not self medicate.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    RIGHT. the hell?

  • Not a Housewife & Neither RU

    RIGHT! I don't get the motivation behind ppl trying to shade her. She's super positive and an inspiration for anybody looking to come up. People claim she's not funny, but that's subjective because Kevin Hart has never made me laugh out loud.

  • Lorenzo Chaps

    LMAO uh huh.

  • Not a Housewife & Neither RU

    I loved her character on The Carmichael's which was one of the funniest shows on TV, I hated that it got cancelled

  • Jussjess25

    What’d you write ? Lol I cant see it. Tiffany is strange af

  • Malcom Flex

    LOL how the hell you know what any celebrity does behind closed doors and btw they self medicate much more than joe average.

  • Malcom Flex

    I wrote >>Something is a bit off about her. Not her manufactured 'book in a box' biography. She reminds me of those deeply nutty hood chicks who cut and fight.<<

  • Yoni7


  • Jussjess25

    Exactly, shes is werido. And I heard she has a sick oppsession with beyonce .

  • parisjok

    they have really gone through an awesome up grade in recent years and that is why they are still in business

  • parisjok

    what, his stand up is so funny and very very truthful in a funny way about the subjects he talk about

  • parisjok

    yeah, she is the one that has the back up and much support from all of black Hollywood heavy weights at this time and she will be successful. they picked her and that is all there is to it

  • Ms.Devereaux

    I came allllll The way back to tell you I think you are right so she posted on her IG the video and she thanked everyone and she posted a picture of her wearing a LV bathing suit top she did a s/o to some body who made the bra top she also mentioned that her and the other women in the video “purchased” their LV scarves and let the lady do her thang (the one who made the tops) Also I had to pay attention and once I looked I started to notice a lot of that stuff don’t look like LV and Gucci made it meaning she would have had to have them custom make it for her because a lot of that stuff you don’t see in the store or on the site. Which means if you I’m with the designer like that where they custom making stuff they better let you wear it in the video! I said all that to say I think you were on to something and you may have been right.

  • hi-liter

    Wow ?.....thanks for the update. I knew it had to be something along those lines. You’d be surprised who wears fake stuff.
