Rita Moreno wore her 1962 Oscars dress again

"This was made in the Philippines", she explained of the black ball gown with an ornate printed skirt.

While almost 60 years may have passed, we think Moreno and the dress look just as incredible as they did on their first red-carpet debut. She's noted for giving one of the shortest Oscars speeches on record while accepting that award. "I leave you with that".

"They would release me for only three days: one day to fly over, one day for the Oscar ceremony, and one day to fly back to the jungle".

The West Side Story actress, one of only 12 people in history to have won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony, told Ryan Seacrest that when she first wore the dress she had no idea that it would look so good 56 years later. Her daughter Fernanda Luisa Fisher first told Vanity Fair during Oscar rehearsals of her mother's outfit choice, and Moreno herself later confirmed that she was going to bring back the dress on Twitter.

Moreno switched things up a bit with the gown by changed the neckline and added a bold necklace, but still kept the statement gloves.

This year Moreno presented the award for Best Foreign Film to Chile's A Fantastic Woman, and had the audience cheering for her as she danced toward the microphone.

He said before the start of the show he's now prepared for anything that could happen on the night. This is our new reality. "You also have to acknowledge that nearly every subject is going to upset someone". "They didn't have a red carpet then, it was so different".
