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 I said, 'I don't give a dang about no taboo'". "Tiffany Haddish wearing her girls trip dress and ugg slippers to the Oscars is the biggest power move I've ever seen", declared another.
She changed into the same $4,000 white Alexander McQueen dress that she sang about and has worn multiple times.
Naturally, viewers were in hysterics over the pair's hosting duties, with one Twitter user writing: "Would anyone have any objections if Kimmel just graciously turned over the rest of the night to Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph?". But, she later explained, the dress was so expensive she didn't want to wear it just once.
So when Haddish spotted Streep down the press line on the red carpet, her fangirl moment made for TV gold.
And that's why Tiffany Haddish chose to wear her dress for a third time last night, despite it being very "taboo" to do at awards shows. Haddish not only surprised the Smiths by picking them up in a cheap $20-a-day rental vehicle, but she got a deep discount on the tour by booking it with Groupon.
"I didn't get nothing".
But don't worry, Haddish says that the dress has stayed fresh.
"That's the part I'm waiting on, " she said.
Tiffany Haddish's white dress accomplished what 1,000 ham-fisted Oscars skits could never do: Make it a show for regular folks.
