If you're a celebrity, there's a lot of pressure to look in a certain way and, of course, dress in a certain way. To make things even more complicated, there is also an unwritten rule that celebrities rarely, if ever, should repeat an outfit. Tiffany Haddish is here to change it all.
The actress and stand-up comedian bought a white Alexander McQueen gown for $ 4,000 early last year. Since then, she has performed three times at three major events: the "Girls Trip" premiere in July 2017, the "Saturday Night Live" in November 201
But Haddish recently told Glamor magazine that her efforts to re-wear the dress have already had an impact on the industry.
"Many people were like," I love the dress. I love what you do. "And since then I've seen two people in the same outfit," she said. Even her friend and former co-star Jada Pinkett Smith is on board.
"Jada was like," I'm so proud that you do not change the machine, who you are, "said Haddish." Be yourself; carry on what you want. "
The 38-year-old said she also heard of people outside the industry who say Haddish repeated their outfits, really helped them out.
" I know this girl on one Private school goes – she's not rich, she's on a scholarship – and kids make fun of her when she wears the same jacket after three days, "said Haddish to Glamor.
" When she saw me [in the McQueen dress] hit get me up. She said that she liked it so much to see me wearing the same dress when people make fun of her and say, "Girl, you have the same jacket on!" She says, "I am Tiffany Haddish today!"
When Haddish hosted "SNL" in November, she endeavored to translate the dress she was wearing into her opening monologue.
"My whole team, they told me," Tiffany, you can not wear this dress on "SNL ." It is taboo to wear it twice & # 39 ;, she explained. "And I said: 'I do not give a dang no taboo, I spent a lot of money on this dress, which costs much more than my mortgage."
Because Haddish introduced it so perfectly to the variety show: "I feel like I should be able to wear whatever I want, whenever I want, as long as I Febreze it."
