Tiffany Haddish has decided to retire her beloved white Alexander McQueen dress after finally getting her money’s worth out of it.
The comedy actress, 39, spent £4,000 (£3,155) on the sleeveless white dress with jewelled collar when she purchased it back in 2017 for the premiere of her movie, Girls Trip, and she was so determined to get full use out of it that she went on to wear the designer purchase while hosting Saturday Night Live, presenting at the 2018 Academy Awards, and then later at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.
Wearing the dress during her recent appearance on the Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, Tiffany revealed that this was the last time she’d wear the gown.
“I love this dress and it’s getting tight,” she said to the talk show host after sitting down. “Like my career is getting big and I think my body is getting bigger.”
Looking visibly uncomfortable in the gown, she joked that the dress’ slit doesn’t cover her legs anymore, to which Letterman responded: “Do you want some duct tape?”
When asked by the 72-year-old how many times she’s worn the dress, the comedienne remarked she even wore the Alexander McQueen gown to the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV).
“Five, six, 18 times. I wear it to the grocery store, I wear it to the DMV. That’s how I get recognised. It’s how I get to the front of the line,” she laughed.
During her opening monologue on Saturday Night Live in late 2017, Tiffany joked to the audience: “I feel like I should be able to wear what I want, when I want, however many times I want as long as I Febreeze’d it.”
