Rita Moreno drew a lot of attention to the Oscars. On the red carpet, the 86-year-old actress appeared in the same dress she was wearing 56 years ago at the prestigious event.
Moreno was dressed in the same vintage creation in 1962, when she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for the movie “West Side Story”. “The dress is historic as much as the historical event, because this is the dress I was wearing in 1962 when I got my Oscar. When I started thinking about what to wear, I thought: “Oh God, of course. I have to wear this toilet that is sitting in my closet for 56 years, “said Moreno, laughing.
At the Hollywood celebration, Rita appeared with her daughter Fernanda Louisa Gordon.
