Rita Moreno re-wears 1962 Oscar dress

The EGOT victor first donned the black printed dress to the 1962 Oscars, when she took home the award for best supporting actress for her role in West Side Story.

"This is the gown that I wore in 1962 when I won my Oscar", she told ABC on the red carpet.

Moreno's decision to wear the same dress was revealed during the Oscar rehearsals in Hollywood on Saturday by her daughter, Fernanda Gordon, as she watched her mother on stage.

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

"I can't believe it!"

"I did not expect to win", she said of her 1962 Oscar.

Admitting that she never thought she would win, she said: "I thought Judy Garland would [win]".

Tonight's 90th Academy Awards takes place in the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles where some of the biggest names in the entertainment will find out if they've won one of the coveted gongs.

Moreno switched things up a bit with the gown by changed the neckline and added a bold necklace, but still kept the statement gloves.

"Yes, It's true! See you all on the #RedCarpet soon!"
