Actress Rita Moreno re-wore her Filipino-made 1962 Oscars gown during the 90th Academy Awards.
The 86-year old actress returned to the Oscars red carpet wearing the same dress she wore when she won Best Supporting Actress award for the film ‘West Side Story’ in 1962.
“It’s been hanging in my closet…I thought it would tarnish,” Moreno told Ryan Seacrest during a red carpet interview.
Moreno presented the award for “Best Foreign Language Film” during this year’s Academy Awards.
Moreno’s elegant black and gold gown was made by 2009 National Artist for Fashion Design by Pitoy Moreno.
The actress visited the country in 1962 for her film ‘Cry of Battle’. It was during the filming of the movie when she received information on her Oscar nomination.
