If there’s one thing we know about award shows, it’s that celebrities take their red carpet fashion seriously. Tiffany Haddish was sure to let a reporter know it was no game. While walking down a red carpet on Sunday, Haddish stopped by for a brief interview with “Entertainment Tonight” correspondent Lauren Zima , and shared his thoughts.
“Did you do a little costume change?” Zima told Haddish, who wore a tailored lime green Dolce & Gabbana dress on the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party red carpet. It consisted of a matching belt draped around her neck, an embellished strapless top, and a sequined green skirt with an elegant train. Earlier today on the Oscars red carpet, Haddish wore a dark emerald green strapless dress by the brand, which featured allover sequins with a fitted cut and a heavily draped train.
“Uh, I’m not wearing a suit. I wear Dolce and Gabbana. It’s called an evening dress, honey. It’s not an acting gig, it’s my life. This is what fame looks like. This is what success looks like. This is what money looks like. This is what it looks like,” Haddish replied.
As Zima tried to wrap things up, Haddish eventually changed the conversation by being “jealous” of Zim’s attire. “You here without shoes, I’m jealous. You are not uncomfortable or nothing good? I know because you’re not wearing heels. I’m uncomfortable but I look fine. This is what it looks like,” Haddish said.
In ET’s video shared on YouTube, the clip garnered over 1.3 million views.
Haddish took to Instagram on Monday and captioned a photo of her dress seen at the Vanity Fair party: “It’s spelled ‘CUSTOM’ not costume…”
Believe it or not, choosing an ensemble for an award show can be quite the challenge for a celebrity. There’s a lot of pressure on them to consistently post “Best Dressed” lists, impress fans and critics, and take fashion risks with the hopes that they’ll wow. And while doing that, they might endure the pain and have to go without eating or drinking just to fit in some bits.
As she made sure Zima understood that her style is not a game, Haddish took a moment to respond to the incident of slapping Will Smith and Chris Rock on stage at the 94th Academy Awards. Fans of the actress know she’s close friends with the Smith family and starred alongside Jada Pinkett-Smith on “Girls Trip.”
“When I saw a black man standing up for his wife. It meant so much to me. And it meant the world to me. And maybe the world might not like how it happened, but for me, it was the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen because it made me believe that there are still men who love and care about their wives, their wives,” Haddish said.
The Vanity Fair Oscars after-party was one of the main takeaways from the 2022 Oscars, which celebrate the best talent in the film industry. Held at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, the event always features a star-studded guest list of Oscar winners, presenters, nominees and those from Hollywood who didn’t attend. This year’s guest list was packed with stars, including Zendaya, Kim Kardashian, Kate Hudson, Anya Taylor-Joy and more.
