Tiffany Haddish Compares Her Rainbow Emmys Dress to a 'Parachute' (Exclusive)

By

Tiffany Haddish is a walking rainbow at the 2018 Emmys!

All eyes were on the comedian as she arrived in a vibrant, multicolored gown with a plunging neckline by Prabal Gurung and Brian Atwood shoes. The custom, hand-plisséd chiffon dress in crimson, azure, citron and lime was inspired by the flag of Eritrea, the home country of Haddish's father. 

"It's the only one that exists," Haddish dished to ET's Kevin Frazier. "'Cause I asked him to make a dress that represents Eritrea, my father's country, so these are the same colors as the flag from Eritrea."

Haddish's slick ponytail complemented her statement look, allowing all the attention to focus on the colorful piece, adorned with geometric earrings.

Here's what some fans on Twitter thought of the look:

Haddish seemed to agree with the parachute comparison, asking Frazier, "Doesn't it remind you of, like, candy or a parachute in first grade? Hot Dog on a Stick, maybe?"
