Rita Moreno Recycles 1962 Oscars Dress — See Her Red-Carpet Modification!

Actress Rita Moreno brought the 1960s back at the 2018 Academy Awards!


Moreno, who took home the Best Supporting Actress in 1962, wore her winning dress again at this year’s star-studded ceremony.

She told "Extra's" Mario Lopez on the red carpet, “Yes, I picked up my Oscar in 1962 in this dress. It's been hanging in my closet and every once in a while I go and stroke it. And then when I was trying to think of what to wear for tonight, I thought, 'Of course, I'll wear my Oscar gown!'"

Rita made a few modifications to the dress, including changing the neckline to strapless.


She added, "We had to make a little room in the back."

Days before the show, Moreno teased her dress, tweeting, “Wait till you see what I’m wearing!!!!”
