Rita Moreno wears same dress she wore in 1962 to 2018 Oscars

Moreno also recalled her experience at the 1962 Oscars.

Rita Moreno is a true red carpet star.

Netflix scored its first feature-film Oscar, with best documentary going to "Icarus", Bryan Fogel's investigation into doping in sports, aided by the assistance of Grigory Rodchenkov, the head of the Russian anti-doping laboratory who candidly discussed the doping scheme under Vladimir Putin.

The dress Rita Moreno wore to accept her best-supporting-actress Oscar in 1962 had another go-round on the red carpet. Footage of Moreno's spell-binding work in that musical film preceded her vampish entrance to present the award this year for Best Foreign Language Film.

After 56 years, Rita Moreno made a decision to dig deep into her closet.

"The fabric is made out of Obi, which is the sash that Japanese women use in their kimonos".

She said the dress has been hanging in her closet ever since, and needed a bit of adjusting in the back in order to wear on Sunday.

While the night's other acting categories are widely expected to go to Frances McDormand ("Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri"), Gary Oldman ("Darkest Hour") and Allison Janney ("I, Tonya"), the long season hasn't produced a clear best-picture favorite.

"I did not expect to win", she reflected on her win for Best Supporting Actress 56 years ago. "I was sure it was going to be Judy Garland for Judgement at Nuremberg". "I thought it would tarnish", Moreno told Ryan Seacrest during a red carpet interview.
