Tina Fey Stripped Down to Her Spanx Last Night on Letterman

What a send-off.

After making more than 20 appearances on Letterman because she lives nearby and celebrities apparently cancel all the time, Tina Fey gave the talk-show legend a farewell present/lesson he won't soon forget.

The hijinks began when the soon-to-retire Late Show host complimented Fey on her embellished dress, to which she replied 1) "Thank you." Then 2) "I don't know if you're aware of the contraptions under hereā€”it's almost medical. And I'm terrible in heels. I dress up like this out of respect for you."

Then, as a way to commemorate her promise that that would be her "last time wearing a fancy dress on at talk show and conforming to gender norms out of respect to you," she took it off, revealing both her shapewear and a leotard printed with "Bye Dave" and #LastDressEver.

There was so much applause.

Hilarious, yes, but also educational and an oh-so-subtle comment on societal expectations of women. You hit it out of the park, Tina Fey, just like you always do.
