Tiffany Haddish’s feet hurt. Between the speeches, introductions, commercials, and hilarious segues from host Jimmy Kimmel, the Oscars are quite the marathon. Haddish walked the red carpet in heels, spending over an hour talking to the press about the striking Eritrean gown that she wore in honor of her late father.
She needed a little bit of a break, so when it was her turn to present the award for Best Animated/Live Action Short alongside fellow funny woman Maya Rudolph, she opted for a more comfortable—and to many with no sense of humor, questionable—option. Haddish stepped onstage in a brand new look from head-to-achy-toe, which consisted of the same white Alexander McQueen dress that she wore to attend the Girls Trip premiere last year and to host Saturday Night Live, as well as a pair of cozy, comfortable Ugg slippers. You know, the kind you only wear to go from the bedroom to the bathroom and back.
Ditching constrictive and painful stilettos is quite the feminist-minded move at an awards show where the conversation is finally centered around empowering women. This on top of the fact that Haddish wore the same gown on three separate public occasions—a serious no-no in the highly stylized world of Hollywood. But Haddish isn’t at the Oscars for a fashion moment. She’s there because she deserves to be, because of her immense talents, because she wanted to give a shout out to her dad, and because she knows how to make us laugh, especially in a pair of fuzzy shearling house slippers.
