Tiffany Haddish on the May 2018 Cover of W Magazine


Although the hit movie 'Girls Trip' featured A-list celebs Jada Pinkett Smith, Queen Latifah & Regina Hall, it was newcomer Tiffany Haddish who stood out in the film. Since the debut of the film, Tiffany quickly rose to fame and now she is featured on the May 2018 cover of W Magazine. On the cover which was shot by Ethan James Green, Tiffany is wearing a VALENTINO SPRING 2018 COUTURE gown. In the issue, she talks about comedy, failure, 'Girls Trip' and that McQueen dress. Continue below to read some excepts from her interview and to see images from her fashion spread. For more on Tiffany's feature, visit Wmagazine.com and pick up a copy on newsstand.

On her knock off Michael Kors bag:
When I was shooting Girls Trip, I had a knockoff Michael Kors bag that said MLK instead of MK. Jada told me that I shouldn’t have knockoff stuff. I told her that my philosophy is, Whatever the bag costs, I should be able to keep that amount of cash in the bag. If it’s a $300 purse, I have to put $300 in cash in that purse. I do not want a bag that is more expensive than the cash I have to put in it. Things are going good for me now, so I am graduating to your Fendis and your Guccis. But I better have the cash equivalent, or I’m not buying the purse. And if things start to go wrong, I’m going right back to my knockoffs. When you’re somebody like me, who’s been homeless, clothes are not that important. Clothes are not a roof over my head, food in my ­stomach, my family’s health—that’s what money is for. But fashion helps get more money. So, we ride.

On that Alexander McQueen dress which You can see HERE:
Here’s the story of that dress: I hired a stylist for Girls Trip, and she 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.’ I should’ve known—wasn’t no price tag on that dress. 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 fucking times. I don’t care what nobody say—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.

On 'Girls Trip & it's success:
I waited. It felt fantastic! But I am hoping for someone to figure out how to do Girls Trip II. So far, that hasn’t happened. Me and the girls know how to do a sequel. We’ve mapped it out. We may have to write it ourselves.

On the Oscars snub:
I could have been mad. But I would always rather try to be funny in any situation. Even when people are laughing at me in a mean way, I still feel some kind of healing from it. When I get super-depressed, I’ll go on YouTube and look up 'babies laughing' just to change my mood. Epic fails are funny, too. In failure, there can be success: By that I mean you can learn what not to do. I find the funny in a lot of failures, because I’ve had enough of them. But I am resilient: My soul is very determined. Ever since I was a little sperm, surrounded by all those other sperm that were stronger than me, had a longer tail than my tail, swam faster than me, I made my way through. I got knocked into other sperm—it was a battle, but I made it to the end.
