Tiffany Haddish wears Eritrean zuria and honors father at Oscars

Tiffany Haddish's outfit for the Oscars red carpet is a tribute to her dad

"My heart has been smiling since she walked onto the Oscars red carpet, I literally started crying", Fetaw said.

Haddish previously wore the form-fitting gown while hosting Saturday Night Live in November of previous year as well as to the Girls Trip premiere back then.

The Last O.G. star was seen wearing an Alexander McQueen gown that she had also worn to the Girl's Trip premiere, as well as to her hosting gig during an episode of Saturday Night Live. "My whole team told me, "Tiffany, you can not wear that dress on SNL". Thankfully, she didn't fall like she did when she fell up the stairs on her way to accept Best Actress at the 2013 Oscars.

"I said, 'I don't give a dang about no taboo, I spent a lot of money on this dress, "' Haddish said.

It's not the first time she's shared her dream casting, either: Haddish first told Vanity Fair in July she'd love to bring Streep along for a potential "Girls Trip" sequel.

Presenters Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph added a little humor to this year's Oscars ceremony.


In the meantime, she'll keep re-wearing the $4,000 Alexander McQueen dress.

She paired it Sunday night with bedroom slippers.

And while Tiffany may not have been nominated for an award at tonight's show, with this move, she definitely was a victor. It makes sense that the actress would want to get as much use out of the dress as possible, considering it reportedly cost a whopping $4,000.

Tiffany Haddish rocked the Oscars red carpet in a traditional African gown. The Girls Trip star hasn't gotten too big for her britches either.

HADDISH: Well, I got blisters bubbling up on the bottom of my foot. Feeling cute because he made [it] for me.
