This 86-Year-Old Actress Just Re-Wore the Same Dress From Her 1962 Oscar Win
In 1962, Rita Moreno walked the red carpet at the Academy Awards in a striking gown to receive her Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for West Side Story. Today, the 86-year-old actress—one of only 12 people in history to have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony, reverently known as an EGOT—returned to the red carpet of the 90th Academy Awards wearing the exact same dress.
Moreno told ABC that her dress was made in the Philippines. The ornate number is crafted from the same material used to create Japanese obis and features an intricate gilded floral design on its voluminous skirt. Both times she wore the dress, Moreno pared back the ornamented skirt with a black bodice and opted for long gloves to finish off the look. Above, Moreno holds her Oscar in 1962.
