People reported that Haddish first wore the dress to the “Girls Trip” premiere in July 2017. She then wore the dress when she hosted “Saturday Night Live” in November. 

“My whole team told me, ‘Tiffany, you cannot wear that dress on ‘SNL.’ You already wore it. It’s taboo to wear it twice,’” Haddish said during her opening monologue on the sketch show. “And I said, ‘I don’t give a dang about no taboo.’ I spent a lot of money on this dress. This dress costs way more than my mortgage. This is an Alexander McQueen. This is a $4,000 dress. I’m gonna wear this dress multiple times.”
