West Side Story Star Wears Same Oscars Dress From 1962

She once sang "everything free in America" and well that's true when you recycle an Oscars dress from 1962. 

West Side Story star Rita Moreno, who played the iconic character Anita, turned up to the 2018 Oscars red carpet wearing the dress that she won the 1962 Best Supporting Actress award in. 


The black and gold number still fits like a glove. 

The only change was the neckline - while Rita initially wore the dress with a high neck, the second time around the 86-year-old opted for a strapless look alongside a statement necklace. 


However both outfits were dressed up with velvet gloves. 

Re-live the dress the first time around with this incredible acceptance speech from back in 1962. 

Rita is one of only 12 people to win the illustrious EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony).
