Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph Ditch Their Stilettos On the Oscars Stage

Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph Ditch Their Stilettos On the Oscars Stage

"If I pay 4K for a dress, I'm wearing it at my wedding, three awards shows and you gotta bury me in it", one person said. Haddish wore the same form-fitting white gown that she's donned on previous red carpets and that she wore while hosting Saturday Night Live a year ago. And what could be more special than Hollywood's biggest night, the Oscars?

On Sunday night the comedian arrived to the red carpet wearing an Eritrean gown as a tribute to her late father.

The actress clearly has a good dry-cleaner on duty. "I'mma wear this dress multiple times'". "Tiffany Haddish is a real-life Nigisti", one person tweeted, referencing her royal status.

During the ceremony, the comedienne continued her campaign, making a second pitch to the Hollywood legend while presenting the award for Documentary Short Subject.

Kobe Bryant in Oscars slam dunk
Both the letter and the film deal largely with Bryant's love of a basketball that began at a very early age. The 39-year-old is the first National Basketball Association player in history to win an Academy Award.

It's taboo to wear it twice, " Haddish said on "Saturday Night Live".

The "Girls Trip" comic donned her go-to Alexander McQueen gown Sunday night to present the Oscar for Best Animated/Live Action Short alongside fellow amusing woman Mia Rudolph. The Girl's Trip scene-stealer made sure she made a lasting appearance during her first trip to the Oscar stage, using her incandescent star power to make a statement in her own unique manner. "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".

We're dead. And Tiffany knows how to achieve her dreams, as when she spotted Meryl strutting down the red carpet, she hopped over a rope to introduce herself.

"Hi Meryl", she said to the actress, seated in the front row.
