Rita Moreno’s Oscars Outfit Was the Same She Wore in 1962


A report by Evann Gastaldo for Newser.


To present the award for best foreign language film at Sunday night’s Oscars ceremony, Rita Moreno went retro. The 86-year-old Puerto Rican actress and singer, the only Latin artist who has an EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony), wore the same dress she wore to the 1962 Academy Awards, when she won the best supporting actress award for West Side Story, the Los Angeles Times reports. “Wait till you see what I’m wearing!!!” Moreno tweeted in advance of the awards show. See the dress in 1962 and this year in our gallery. (See why another dress made headlines at the Oscars.)
