posted by Cyndi & Chris -

Rita Moreno, who is best known for her Oscar winning role in West Side Story, made a awesome fashion statement at the Oscars this year.

The actress wore the same dress 56 years later that she did when she accepted the award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Anita back in 1962. 

This year, Moreno presented the award for Best Foreign Language Film in that same beautiful black and gold dress, while still showing off her dance moves!

Rita Moreno arrived at the @TheAcademy Awards in the same dress she wore for her 1962 Oscars win. She won Best Supporting Actress for her role in West Side Story that year. Moreno reminisced about her big win all those years ago and explained why she kept her acceptance speech so short — she spoke for only 15 seconds. • It turns out she was sure Judy Garland would win. The dress was made in the Philippines, which is where Moreno was shooting a movie at the time. She decided to fly in for the ceremony just in case, she said. (photos by Getty / AP)
