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!!!!”
