While most stars wouldn’t be caught dead repeating an outfit, Tiffany Haddish is making sure she squeezes every single wear out of her most expensive dress.
The Girls Trip star has no shame about sporting the same white Alexander McQueen halter gown to the film’s premiere last July, while hosting SNL, and more recently during the Academy Awards in March.
And Keanu actress, 38, finally explained the story behind her now-iconic dress, admitting she ‘cried’ after seeing the $4k receipt, in a new interview with W Magazine.
Haddish explained that ‘the story of that dress’ began when she enlisted the help of a stylist last year.
‘I hired a stylist for Girls Trip,’ the The Carmichael Show talent said, ‘[The stylist] 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.”‘
But ‘whatever it takes’ meant way more than the star initially guessed.

Level up! Tiffany (above in Girls Trip) shelled out for the dress after her stylist suggested she needed to spend a little in order to ‘make it to the next level’
‘I should’ve known — wasn’t no price tag on that dress,’ she continued. ‘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.’
Having worked her way to fame from tough times, even being homeless at one point, the New York Time Bestselling author was shocked by how much a silly, albeit fabulous, dress could cost.
Pretty penny! Tiffany listed the other things you could buy with $4000 as further reason why she should wear and re-wear the frock, saying: ”That’s a down payment on a car, that’s a medical bill.’ The star stuns at the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party back in March, above
‘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.’
And it’s possible that the little white McQueen will make an appearance once again.
Tiffany will take the stage at Just For Laughs festival in Montreal, Canada this July 28, where she headlines along with Kevin Hart.
