I want to talk about the Oscar’s 2018 best dressed once more before we move onto to new topics. Tiffany Haddish was not featured in any of the best dressed articles I came across when deciding who to feature in my top 11 looks. Tiffany Haddish’s three-peat is iconic and it’s a shame it was excluded
She shamelessly rocked her white Alexander McQueen three times. Her first time wearing the dress was for the Girls Trip premiere. She rocked it the second time for SNL and lastly (or not!) for presenting an award at the Oscar’s 2018.
Tiffany recounted how her team advised her to not wear her white gown on Saturday Night Live. “…my whole team, they told me, “‘Tiffany, you cannot wear that dress on ‘SNL.’ You already wore it. It’s taboo to wear it twice. I said, ‘I don’t give a dang about no taboo.’” Typical Tiffany lmao, I lover her!
On SNL, Tiffany said, “I feel like I should be able to wear what I want, when I want, however many times I want as long as I Febreze it.” Where is the lie??
A friend actually brought my attention to this. At the end of my top 11 looks blog post, I asked readers to let me know who else they thought was dressed well. My friend told me that Tiffany Haddish was worth mentioning because she wore her dress three times. I found out that Tiffany wore a different dress for the red carpet to honor her heritage and late father.

“He said one day I would end up here and if I ever ended up at the Oscars to honor my people so I’m honoring my fellow Eritreans,” she said. This was also left out, pressing the question of why editors leave out iconic and sentimental decisions like this.
I think it’s very important to discuss and shed light on repeating outfits and media coverage of these outfits. American culture is very consumerist. Fast fashion reigns over the fashion industry, promoting a culture of “Oh I’ll get it because it’s cheap.” In reality, all of those purchases add up. Imagine for celebrities wearing a new designer garment for every outing. It’s exhausting. We all have those outfits we love to rock whenever we’re in the mood for comfort and familiarity. It’s okay to repeat an outfit 🗣
As for media coverage, it’s a shame no one really talked about Tiffany Haddish’s three-peat and tribute to her late father. If she wore a different dress when she presented the award, she would’ve ended up one either a best or worst dressed list. Same goes for her dress on the red carpet. Think about it, Joy Villa wore a dress glorifying the Trump Administration and she was given substantial coverage. Tiffany wears a stunning dress representing her culture and she’s overlooked. Honestly, it’s time to widen the view of celebrity fashion. After all, regular people get inspiration from celebrity fashion. This is another reason why I don’t like E News — a topic for another day!
What do you think of Tiffany’s look? Would you do the same as Tiffany if you were in her position? Let me know in the comments below!
