Rita Moreno Arrives At Academy Awards In Same Dress She Wore For Her 1962 Oscar Win

Rita Moreno will be among the presenters at Sunday’s Oscars, and the “One Day at a Time” star is wearing a special surprise hearkening back to her own Oscar win for “West Side Story”.

According to an interview that the daughter of the 86-year-old EGOT winner (she’s also won a Grammy, a Tony and an Emmy) gave to Vanity Fair, Moreno said she would take to the stage of the Dolby Theatre wearing the same gown she wore when she won her Oscar at the 1962 ceremony.
