The Story Behind Tiffany Haddish's Eritrea Dress

Tiffany Haddish stepped onto the 90th Oscar's red carpet wearing a stunning dress honoring her late father's Eritrea roots.

In an interview with Michael Strahan, she states that her late father said that one day she would end up at the Oscars and that if she ever did to honor her people and that she did, looking flawless as ever.

In an article by OkayAfrica they state that, "Haddish is donning a zuria, a hooded dress worn by women in Eritrea and Ethiopia, topped with a kaba—a cape you'll see a habesha bride and groom wear at weddings."
