Tiffany Haddish’s Interview Goes Viral After Barefoot Reporter Calls Her Oscars Party Dress a ‘Costume’ & Talks Uncomfortable Heels

If there’s one thing we know about awards shows, it’s that celebrities take their red carpet fashion seriously. Tiffany Haddish was sure to let one reporter know that it’s not a game. While making her way down a red carpet on Sunday, Haddish stopped for a quick interview with “Entertainment Tonight” correspondent Lauren Zima and shared her thoughts.

“Did you do a little costume change?” Zima said to Haddish, who was dressed in a custom lime green Dolce & Gabbana gown on the Vanity Fair Oscars after-party red carpet. It consisted of a matching sash that draped around her neck, an embellished bustier top and a glittery green skirt with an elegant train. Earlier in the day on the Oscars red carpet, Haddish had on a strapless dark emerald green dress from the brand, which featured allover sequins with a slim fit and sharply draped train.

“Um, I’m not wearing a costume. I’m wearing Dolce and Gabbana. It’s called an evening gown, darling. This is not an acting gig, this is my life. This what fame look like. This what success look like. This what money look like. This what it look like,” Haddish responded.

As Zima tried to wrap things up, Haddish eventually shifts the conversation to being “jealous” of Zima’s attire. “You out here with no shoes on, I’m jealous. You are not uncomfortable or nothing right? I know cause you not wearing no heels. I’m uncomfortable but I look good. This what it look like,” Haddish says.

In ET’s video shared to YouTube, the clip garnered more than 1.3 million views.

In the midst of making sure that Zima understood that her style is nothing play with, Haddish took a moment to respond to the Will Smith and Chris Rock slapping incident on the 94th Academy Awards stage. Rock made a joke about Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s cropped hair. The actress previously revealed in videos shared to her social media accounts that she’s experiencing hair loss due to alopecia. Fans of Pinkett-Smith know that Haddish is close friends with the Smith family and starred alongside her in “Girls Trip.”

“I felt glad, I felt gratified and I hope more men are like that… care for their families,” Haddish said to Zima about her reaction to the incident.

The Vanity Fair Oscars after-party served as one of the top conclusions of the 2022 Academy Awards, which celebrate the top talents across the film industry. Held at the Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, the event always features a star-studded guest list of both Oscar winners, presenters, nominees and those in Hollywood who did not attend. This year’s guest list was packed with star power, including Zendaya, Kim Kardashian, Kate Hudson, Anya Taylor-Joy and more.
