The Oscars ended a few hours ago, and, as usual, alongside the discussions of who did and didn’t win are the reviews of the outfits on show at Hollywood’s glitziest event.

American comedienne Tiffany Haddish Eritrean-themed dress is getting special attention.

She wore an embroidered cape, headdress and dress called a “zuria”.

African culture news site Okay Africa says that the dress is mostly worn in wedding ceremonies.

The comedian and actress, who presented an award at the ceremony, said that the outfit was in honour of her Eritrean father, who died last year.
