Rita Moreno, one of twelve people who has ever won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony, showed up to the 2018 Academy Awards in a familiar look – the same dress she wore to the 1962 Oscars where she won the award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for West Side Story.
Moreno took to the red carpet to showcase her retro dress and made headlines everywhere. She told E! host Ryan Seacrest, “I would think it would tarnish.”
But tarnish it did not, and the singer and actress looked absolutely stunning on the red carpet.
She couldn’t help but tease fans about her dress on Twitter.
Wait till you see what I'm wearing!!! https://t.co/X9oem3aPdO

A few hours before the ceremony, news broke of her dress and she took to Twitter again to confirm the truth.
