Tiffany Haddish finally explained why she's donned the same white Alexander McQueen dress on three different occasions in the past year.
The actress-comedian has sported it several times during public appearances because she spent $4,000 on the dress.
Haddish wore the dress at the premiere of Girls Trip, while hosting Saturday Night Live and at the 2018 Oscars.
"Here’s the story of that dress," Haddish told W. "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.'"
She spent more than just "a little" on the now infamous frock.
"I should've known - wasn't no price tag on that dress," she explained.
Haddish continued that finding out the cost of the dress made her emotional.
"So I wear it for “Girls Trip,” and then they give me the receipt," she explains. "When I saw the receipt, I cried. The dress was $4,122! So I’m wearing it multiple f****** times. "
Regardless of what anyone thinks, she's content with her choice to wear the dress again and again.
"I don’t care what nobody say - that’s a down payment on a car, that’s a medical bill," she says. "So, even though everyone says I shouldn’t wear the dress in public again, I’m wearing it."
Haddish's dress has definitely run the gamut of the Hollywood circuit.
