How Tina Fey got Sarah Palin's bolero for SNL
It wasn’t so easy for Saturday Night Live to acquire Sarah Palin’s full metal jacket for Tina Fey.
To help Fey pull off another famous impression for Saturday’s telecast, the costume department knew they had to find the beaded bolero that Palin wore while endorsing Donald Trump on Jan. 19. Unfortunately, the $695 jacket sold out after Palin’s appearance. So SNL had to take matters into their own hands.
They made one themselves.
Fans who loved the result posted messages like “she’s identical” and “Tina Fey please never die.”
Saturday was the second time in five weeks that Fey played Palin on SNL. She also impersonated Palin during the Dec. 19 episode.
