With the Rihanna and Haddish seal of approval, you can be sure that we'll be seeing a whole lot more Uggs in the well as that McQueen dress.

Tiffany Haddish's Oscars red carpet look was definitely one of a kind.

Haddish started her day by jumping over the rope on the red carpet to meet her idol, Streep.

In a video captured by Variety's Elizabeth Wagmeister, Haddish can be heard yelling, "you're gonna be my momma!" "I'mma wear this dress multiple times'".

Haddish was the breakout star of last summer's box office hit Girls Trip, co-starring Queen Latifah, Regina Hall, and Jada Pinkett-Smith.

Bryant stated, "As basketball players we're really supposed to shut up and dribble , but. we do a bit more than that". Both the letter and the film deal largely with Bryant's love of a basketball that began at a very early age.

After arriving in a gown that was a nod to her late father's Eritrean heritage, Haddish changed into that white McQueen dress yet again for presenting onstage with the great Maya Rudolph. But, she later explained, the dress was so expensive she didn't want to wear it just once. Haddish even made history has being the first Black female stand-up comedian to host an episode of Saturday Night Live (SNL).

"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. "I'm so happy the world is finally being exposed to [my work]", she said.

"Everybody will be like, 'How you got a white mama?' And I'll be like, 'I told y'all I was in the system".

She went on to tease that white people using headsets made her feel like she was "in a department store". Then, referencing rumours she was trying to get the veteran to play her mum in Girls Trip 2, she declared: "Let's get this money, girl!"
