Eternally Relatable Tiffany Haddish Re-Wears Gown at Oscars

Tiffany Haddish, however, really wasn't joking when she said that she likes to save money any way she can.

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

Her five minutes on stage with Bridesmaids star Maya Rudolph to present the Academy Awards for Documentary Short and Live-Action Short prompted calls for her to take over Oscar hosting duties next year. "I'm going to wear this dress multiple times", she said in her SNL monologue. It probably helped that Tiffany treated Meryl like the Hollywood royalty she is and ended the visit with a curtsey. On the red carpet, Haddish donned a traditional Eritrean African dress to honor her later father, Tsihaye Reda Haddish.

The actress clearly has a good dry-cleaner on duty. It's taboo to wear it twice.' And I said, 'I don't give a dang about no taboo. This dress cost way more than my mortgage. The Girls Trip star, who has had a breakout year after the comedy became a certified blockbuster last summer, has mentioned Streep at almost every turn.

From the second the women arrived on stage wearing slippers - while holding their heels in their hands - the pair slayed the show.

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

"My father is from Eritrea", Haddish told ABC on the red carpet.

TIFFANY HADDISH: We are so happy to be here but our feet hurt.

She went on to tease that white people using headsets made her feel like she was "in a department store". She says today reminded her family that representation truly matters.
