Tiffany Haddish violates Oscars 'taboo' by rewearing dress

Kelly Ripa at the 2018 Oscars

"I might Elizabeth Taylor this thing", she said. Some eagled-eyed viewers spotted that Ms. Haddish was wearing the same dress she wore to promote "Girls Trip" and to host "Saturday Night Live".

"My whole team told me, 'Tiffany, you can not wear that dress on 'SNL,' you already wore it". Sure, they might not have matched her gown as well as the stilettos, but they showed how she is the most relatable woman in Hollywood. She's made that plea about a million times since-and, on Sunday night, even got to make it on stage at the Academy Awards. I'm [going to] wear this dress multiple times.

Haddish, who had vowed from the red carpet to meet Meryl Streep and talk to her about playing her mother onscreen, called out to the 21-time nominee from the stage.

During her monologue, she mentioned the dress cost $4,000 and she would wear it again.

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

Later, she changed into a white Alexander McQueen dress, notable for the fact she's worn it to big events on more than one occasion.

Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph might only be presenters at the 2018 Oscars but Jimmy Kimmel should be on high alert, because the two look like they're out to snatch his hosting job next year. The actress and comedian also entered the Oscars red carpet doing a traditional Eritrean dance.

She went on to tease that white people using headsets made her feel like she was "in a department store".

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

And while Tiffany may not have been nominated for an award at tonight's show, with this move, she definitely was a victor.
