Rita Moreno Takes You Rewearing That Bridesmaids Dress and Raises You

Rita Moreno Takes You Rewearing That Bridesmaids Dress and Raises You

Recycling has never been more elegant.

In 1962, wearing a black and gold dress, Rita Moreno won her first major award, an Oscar, playing "America"-loving Anita in West Side Story".

Moreno, who now stars in "One Day at a Time" with Justina Machado and Isabella Gomez, is one of just 12 people to win an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award. Moreno told Ryan Seacrest on E!'s red carpet.

The dress was created in Manila and was made strapless.

"This is a 56-year-old gown that I wore when I won my Oscar in 1962". Rita just made a minor modification by changing the neckline, but the whole look is pretty much the way she wore it back then! 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.

In fact, Moreno was so caught off guard that she did NOT have a speech planned, and she was responsible for one of the shortest acceptance speeches in Oscars history, clocking in at around 15 seconds. "I was sure it was going to be Judy Garland for Judgement at Nuremberg". In January at the Golden Globes, Moreno made another notable entrance, cruising down the red carpet on a red scooter with Lear at the helm.
