Tiffany Haddish Loves a Good Designer Knock-off Bag & She’s Not Ashamed to Admit It

Sure, Tiffany Haddish is friends with Beyoncé, aka Mrs. “Billion Dollars on an Elevator,” but that doesn’t mean she’s above a good ol’ knock-off.

The Night School star opened up about her refreshing attitude toward the (faux) finer things in life in an interview with W Magazine saying, “When I was shooting Girls Trip, I had a knock-off Michael Kors bag that said MLK instead of MK. Jada [Pinkett Smith] told me that I shouldn’t have knock-off stuff.”

But Haddish wasn’t deterred by Pinkett Smith’s advice: “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.” Um, that’s genius.

The comedienne went on to explain that although she wouldn’t knock a knock-off, her handbag selection has improved since then. “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 knock-offs,” Haddish explained.

But even though Haddish has some money in the bank, she’s not taking it for granted: “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.”

Preach with your MLK bag, Tiffany. Preach.
