Time Warp: Rita Moreno Brings Back Her 'West Side Story' Oscars Dress

Rita Moreno wore her 1962 Oscars dress to the 90th Academy Awards

In fact, Moreno was so caught off guard that she did NOT have a speech planned, and she was responsible for one of the shortest acceptance speeches in Oscars history, clocking in at around 15 seconds.

The Puerto Rican actress and singer flew in from the Philippines where she was "making a really crappy World War II movie, playing yet another native girl" and had a dress maker in Manila make the gown. "I leave you with that". During the 2018 Oscars ceremony held in Los Angeles today, actress Rita Moreno wore the gown Pitoy designed for her when she won an Oscar in 1962. However, she didn't think she was going to win that year.

Moreno switched things up a bit with the gown by changed the neckline and added a bold necklace, but still kept the statement gloves. Mostly I wish I had accepted on behalf of my people.

She has an Academy Award, Emmy Award, Grammy Award and Tony Award all to her name.

But even if they don't win, those lucky enough to attend the star studded ceremony will be walking away with an incredible gift bag, worth over £100,000.

He said before the start of the show he's now prepared for anything that could happen on the night. "Good lord. I leave you with that.' I did not expect to win".

Moreno was also the belle of the ball on the red carpet.
