Oh, she did THAT.

Posted on

Our favorite comedy queen, Tiffany Haddish, rolled up to the 90th Academy Awards looking like an absolute dream, and it turns out her look was entirely inspired by her heritage.

In an interview with Michael Strahan, Haddish explained that before her father died last year, he told her that when she made it to the Oscars she should rep Eritrean heritage, and so that's exactly what she did.

Tiffany Haddish said the story behind her dress at tonight's #Oscars was inspired by her Eritrean roots.

It's safe to say she absolutely nailed the look.

Her dress is honestly so stunning, and for many a welcome taste of home.

Okay actually Tiffany Haddish in traditional Eritrean dress is also good, bc the elderly doorman watching the red carpet with me LIT UP when he saw it, and left his desk to explain to me that this style of dress is from his home country and he finds the embroidery so beautiful...

Haddish isn't even up for an award tonight, but she's already a winner.

Tiffany Haddish isn’t nominated but that didn’t stop her from coming dressed like a goddamn winner #Oscars
