Moreno recycles her 1962 Oscars gown at the 2018 Oscars

Rita moreno oscars recycled dress

But there's one secret behind her Oscars gown which many may not have known: Rita has worn it to the Academy Awards before, all the way back in 1962.

There is going vintage and then there is Rita Moreno. "It looks like people are embracing personal style more than just wearing a typical dress".

Rita Moreno thought it was time for her gown from the 1962 Oscars to make a comeback, so she made a decision to wear it to the Oscars this year. Moreno previously wore the full black skirt with gold, floral accents in 1962, the evening she won an Oscar for her supporting role in West Side Story.

Five years later, she proved that she can still rock the dress while presenting the award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Moreno, who suggested she would "have a heart attack" because of the big-name actress scheduled to sit behind her, later confirmed the plans on Twitter, making her one of the rare octogenarians who truly understands the power of social-media hype.

"The fabric is made out of Obi, which is the sash that Japanese women use in their kimonos". "It's been hanging in my closet".

The black strapless frock features a black bottom adorned with gold flower embellishments.

Rita's daughter, Fernanda Luisa Fisher, previously revealed that her mother would be wearing her old dress.

Moreno has talked to The Chronicle many times over the years, and in an interview in 2011, she summed up her career: "I would call my story an American story".

Accessorizing with long black gloves as she did 56 years ago, the "Singin' in the Rain" actress replaced the gown's old high neck with a statement choker for the 2018 Oscars. Garland had been nominated for "Judgment at Nuremberg".
