Tiffany Haddish wore a stunning Oscars gown to honor her father's Eritrean roots

HOLLYWOOD CA- MARCH 04 Tiffany Haddish attends the 90th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center

But before he did, he asked that if she were ever on the Oscars to represent her northeast African people. "I can't wait for them to see The Last O.G. and see Face Value and all these other shows that I've got coming and more movies where they can go, 'Wow, this girl is versatile".

Now, to you or us, wearing a dress multiple times in your life is not the biggest deal in the world.

Playing a game of Marry, Date, Dash, she confessed: "I would date Brad Pitt, marry George Clooney and I would ditch Javier [Bardem] because I don't know who Javier is". She's not out here acting like every red carpet look is effortless.

The up-and-coming actor had a breakout in 2017 thanks to her scene-stealing role in Girls Trip, which also starred Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith. It's taboo to wear it twice, ' and I said, "I don't give a dang about no taboo'".

She stated she'd wear her $4000 dress as often as necessary to justify the cost. She proved she was serious at Sunday's Oscars and this time paired it with a nice comfortable pair of Ugg slippers, joking that she had suffered bad blisters on the bottom of her feet from wearing her heels since 11am.

Maya said, "But we just want to say, don't worry". Something tells us though that it won't be long until Haddish is having to turn down offers from designers offering to loan her dresses.

Haddish wore the dress at the premiere of "Girls Trip" in July. There are white people walking around with headsets, white people with clipboards... "So I'm wearing an Eritrean, authentic princess dress". She says today reminded her family that representation truly matters.
