Rita Moreno Wears Same Dress to Oscars That She Wore in 1962

Playing Tiffany Haddish, Rita Moreno Wear Recycled Dresses at the Oscars

Rita Moreno sure looked pretty and witty and bright at Sunday night's Academy Awards, where she wore the same gown as she did in 1962.

The One Day at a Time actress stole the show in a black and gold strapless gown complete with black gloves.

It's the same dress she wore when she was named Best Supporting Actress for West Side Story in 1962.

"It's been hanging in my closet," she said on the red carpet.

The 86-year-old actress said the dress was created in Manila by designer Jose Moreno. It was made from a single piece of obi fabric, which is traditionally used to make kimonos. 

The dress still fit perfectly apart from the top, which was a little tight, so she had it altered slightly and changed the neckline.

She added more jewelry this time around and wore a necklace designed by her daughter.

She'd hinted at the surprise in the days before the Oscars.

Moreno presented the award for Best Foreign Language Film Sunday night. A Fantastic Woman, from Chile, took home the award.
