Rita Moreno Wore Her Same Oscar Dress From 1962

Rita Moreno proved she is a really Oscars icon on Sunday night time when she wore the same dress she donned on Oscar evening in 1962.

The“ One Day in a Time” star revealed to Vanity Reasonable earlier on Sunday that she’ d end up being wearing the gown she put on when she won her Oscar for “ West Side Tale. ”  

Moreno, who’ s presenting at the 90th Yearly Academy Awards ceremony, told Thomas Seacrest on the red carpet which the dress was made from a obi sash from the Philippines. Obi sashes are traditional garb for Japan women that accompany their kimonos. Moreno noted that her dress is one piece of fabric.

“ I might think that it would tarnish, ” Moreno said of the dress’ longevity. “ It’ s been hanging inside my closet. ”
