Rita Moreno wears 1962 Oscars dress to Sunday's ceremony

Rita Moreno wears 1962 Oscars dress to Sunday's ceremony

If Rita Moreno's 2018 Oscars dress looks familiar, it's because she actually wore the stunning ball gown to the same event 56 years earlier.

Salma Hayek looked like exotic royalty in a heavily jeweled, light purple gown, while Rita Moreno honored Academy Awards history by donning the same gown with a ball skirt she wore in 1962, when she won an Oscar for "West Side Story".

The iconic dress was made in the Philippines, People reports, and features a black strapless top with a sweetheart neckline. Otherwise, she even kept on the same now-vintage opera gloves.

India's biggest bank scam could swell to $2 billion
Mar. 01 ( ANI): A special Central Bureau of Investigation ( CBI ) court on Thursday sent Internal Chief Auditor M.K. The company is a wholly owned subsidiary of Firestar Group, which in turn is wholly owned by Synergies Corp.

Moreno recounted how she came to the 1962 Oscars "never dreaming I would win" because she was up against Judy Garland. It was during the filming of the movie when she received information on her Oscar nomination.

This year Moreno presented the award for Best Foreign Film to Chile's A Fantastic Woman, and had the audience cheering for her as she danced toward the microphone.

Presenter Salma Hayek, wearing a lilac Gucci dress with tiers of sequins and rhinestones worthy of "One Thousand and One Arabian Nights", cited the female solidarity that was changing how Hollywood was run. She wore a head-turning massive black gown with gold flower patterns. "They're usually folded over and over, and this is one piece of fabric", she explains to E! However, she didn't think she was going to win that year. "I flew in from Manila just in case, which is where this gown was made".

The shoulder-fired weapon is armed with a so-called "fire and forget" guided missile system, designed for use by infantry units. United States officials discussed Javelin missiles as well as anti-aircraft weapons as a form of lethal aid for Kiev.

While some may say wearing a red carpet gown twice is a major fashion faux pas, Rita Moreno totally just debunked that notion.

"I would like to add about 40 different things". Mostly I wish I had accepted on behalf of my people.
