A parade of stars will say farewell to David Letterman over the next few days. But no one will pull off what Tina Fey did on Thursday.
She gave the late-night host her dress.
Complaining about how uncomfortable it is to wear dresses on talk shows, “I’m never gonna wear another fancy dress on a talk show again,” Fey told Letterman. “My gift to you is I wanna give you the dress.”
Letterman looked a little stunned as, at her request, he unzipped the back of her dress.

Underneath the dress, which she kicked out of the way when she shimmied out of it, she wore a black leotard with the words “Bye Dave!” over the crotch and “#LastDressEver” on her backside.
In classic Letterman form he kissed Fey’s hand and said, “God bless you dear.”
