Tiffany Haddish ''cried'' when she found out how much her infamous Alexander McQueen dress cost and will continue to wear it because it was so expensive.
Tiffany Haddish ''cried'' when she found out how much her infamous Alexander McQueen dress cost.
The 38-year-old actress originally wore the white halter gown to the premiere of 'Girls Trip', before donning it again to host 'Saturday Night Live' and a third time at the Academy Awards, and she's planning to give it more outings as she wants to get her money's worth because the fancy frock cost over $4,000.
She said: ''I might wear it again.
''Here's the story of that dress; 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.'
''I said, 'I'm down to look my best. Whatever it takes.' ''
The stylist brought several options but the McQueen gown fit her best.
Tiffany continued: ''I should've known - 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***ing 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.''
'The Last O.G.' actress has only recently traded up her ''knock-off'' handbags for genuine designer accessories and explained her philosophy when it comes to splashing out.
She told W magazine: ''When I was shooting 'Girls Trip'.
''I had a knockoff Michael Kors bag that said MLK instead of MK. Jada told me that I shouldn't have knock-off stuff.
''I told her that my philosophy is, 'Whatever the bag costs, I should be able to keep that amount of cash in the bag.' If it's a $300 purse, I have to put $300 in cash in that purse.
''I do not want a bag that is more expensive than the cash I have to put in it.
''Things are going good for me now, so I am graduating to your Fendis and your Guccis. But I better have the cash equivalent, or I'm not buying the purse.
''And if things start to go wrong, I'm going right back to my knock-offs. When you're somebody like me, who's been homeless, clothes are not that important.
''Clothes are not a roof over my head, food in my stomach, my family's health--that's what money is for. But fashion helps get more money. So, we ride.''
