  • Tiffany Haddish corrected a reporter who referred to her evening gown as a "costume."

  • While appearing at Vanity Fair's Oscars after-party, Haddish was asked about her "costume change."

  • "I'm not wearing a costume. I'm wearing Dolce & Gabbana," Haddish corrected.

Tiffany Haddish corrected a reporter who referred to her evening gown as a "costume" at Vanity Fair's Oscars after-party.

Entertainment Tonight reporter Lauren Zima was interviewing the "Like A Boss" actress on the red carpet when she asked about her "little costume change."

"I'm not wearing a costume. I'm wearing Dolce & Gabbana," Haddish quipped. "It's called an evening gown, darling."

She continued: "No one is paying me for this. I paid for it, it's custom. Thank you."

The reporter jokingly played off the interaction, saying that her "time of death" was "now."

"This is not an act, this is my life," Haddish said with a smile. "This is what fame look like. This what success look like. This what money look like."

Zima continued with small talk and praise while Haddish continued to subtly shade the reporter, jokingly asking her where she was from and why she didn't have shoes on.

Zima rolled with it while laughing it off.
