Though she doesn’t have a starring role in the movie, actress and comedienne Tiffany Haddish still went all out while attending the red carpet. With her hair slicked down, Haddish turned heads in a tailored blue and red jacquard suit, which mirrored the vibrant African sunsets that made the original Lion King so iconic.
