The SNL alumni also made good on her promise to "hunt down" Meryl Streep after revealing her obsession with the 68-year-old screen legend.

For background, the Girl's Trip star's outfit is significant for a heartfelt reason - she said on the red carpet that her outfit is in tribute to her father, who died a year ago.

Tiffany Haddish's white dress accomplished what 1,000 ham-fisted Oscars skits could never do: Make it a show for regular folks.

HADDISH: Well, I got blisters bubbling up on the bottom of my foot.

"Meryl better bring her best security, because I'm hunting her down", she told Vanity Fair in January.

Maya, 45, told her pal: "Tiffany, can I just say when you peed off a zipline in Girls Trip - it was brilliant".

Haddish didn't wear it the entire evening, however, choosing to walk the red carpet in a traditional Eritrean dress as a tribute to the heritage of her late father who was from Eritrea.

The Congress won 21 seats out the 59 that went to polls last month. "We are hopeful that we will be able to form the government". A delegation of three Congress leaders - Kamal Nath, Ahmed Patel and CP Joshi - met the governor at 7 pm last night, they said.

While another pointed out: "Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph need a series".

Haddish definitely got her money's worth.

She said: "That was awesome".

Tiffany Haddish, breakout star of last summer's Girls Trip, might not have been nominated at last night's Oscars (March 4), but she went ahead and won the whole thing anyway. In fact, part of Tiffany Haddish's Saturday Night Live monologue was all about how she plans to rewear the dress multiple times, despite the fact that it's frowned upon in Hollywood. This dress costs way more than my mortgage. "I'm so happy the world is finally being exposed to [my work]", she said.

She wore sparkling heels with the attire during her first appearance on the NBC sketch show.

HADDISH: I don't know, but it feels like I'm in a department store.
