Actress Rita Moreno Wears same dress she wore to same ceremony 56 years ago
Legendary actress, Rita Moreno arrived at the Oscars on Sunday wearing the same dress she wore to the Oscars in 1962.
The 86-year-old wore the black and gold gown at the 1962 Academy Awards when she won the best supporting actress Oscar for her role in the musical film “West Side Story.” 56 years later, she was able to fit into the same dress to Sunday’s 90th Academy Awards and she looked great in it.
Moreno is one of only a dozen performers to hold the EGOT designation, having won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony award.
The veteran told E!’s Ryan Seacrest that the skirt was made from a material traditionally used to make Japanese kimonos. She said it’s been hanging in her closet since the last time she used it and she thought it would tarnish.
