MTV Awards host Tiffany Haddish almost had a wardrobe malfunction, but she handled it like a bause
Tiffany Haddish dazzles on the red carpet during MTV awards and brings back her $4000 Alexander McQueen sleeveless gown for her hosting gig.
Tiffany Haddish walked the red carpet of MTV Awards looking fierce and confident. The actress, who is also the host for the awards show this year, was glowing in her metallic ensemble. The head-turning dress showed off her curves in the right places and had everyone's eyes on her at the red carpet entry to the show. To make the dress a lot more fun, it also featured a veil-style train. However, Tiffany almost had a wardrobe malfunction because of the long slit that the dress had.
But then the pro that she is, she immediately used her hand to prevent her dress from riding up further. The 38-year-old actress dealt with the slight inconvenience, then looked up and smiled for the photographers without dropping a sweat. She did not let the near wardrobe malfunction bring down her confidence as she continued to pose.
For her hosting gig, she rewore her $4000 white Alexander McQueen gown. This is the fourth time she wore the now iconic sleeveless dress. She even made sure the audience noticed her fashion choice as she joked: “Welcome back to my Alexander McQueen dress."
It's funny since she received a lot of criticism for recycling the dress the previous few times. She had shot back at haters saying there should be no stigma around repeating a dress and that she should be able to wear what she wants and as often as she wants it.
Coming to the job at hand, she displayed excellent hosting skills. She had the audience doubling up with laughter at her quips and one can see MTV picked a great host for the event this year. In a clip that was obtained by E! it was seen that the actress had plied the attendees with some really witty and funny lines. The actress reportedly had a couple of names of celebrities who she used as part of her opening monologue.
Turns out she really likes the Kardashians, they made it to her monologue. "I'm always excited to see the Kardashians. That family is basically the Star Wars franchise, OK? They make a ton of money, a new one is always popping up and they're ruled by a bossy overlord who sleeps in a mask and she loves black men, so yes!" Tiffany says. Just like everyone, even Kim Kardashian enjoyed the gig as she was seen laughing at these statements. So, all's cool we guess.
Tiffany also showed some love towards Zendaya. "And you know who else I love? Zendaya. She taught me how to model. She told me how to model and I taught her how to grapefruit. What!" she said. "She 21 now, Y'all! She a grown woman. You gotta know how to do that if you want a husband."
Jokes aside Tiffany really had fans in a tizzy when she revealed that she saw someone biting Beyonce. Everyone was thrown into sleuth mode trying to figure out the culprit. After having kept people on the hooks for some time, the actress finally decided to break her silence and reveal the name. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Tiffany revealed that the person who bit Beyonce had been Sanaa Lathan. "I'm super good friends with [Lathan's] stepmom and her dad, and they were mad at me," she said. "They were like, 'Why would you do this to the family? You know, black actresses, you guys have to stick together, it's so hard for you guys to get work as it is, why would you try to ruin her career?' But I didn't try to ruin her career. I never said her name! I was just trying to say how Beyonce kept me from goin' to jail that night. I coulda just shut my whole career down."
