The dress was actually designed by no other than legendary Filipino designer Pitoy Moreno (their last names are just a coincidence!) back when Rita was in Manila filming a movie called Cry of Bataan.

The 86-year-old star appeared on the red carpet in the same dress she wore 56 years ago to pick up her gong for West Side Story. The sleeveless ballgown features a black bodice and a printed, gold-embellished skirt.

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

There is going vintage and then there is Rita Moreno.

Moreno is one of only a dozen performers to hold the EGOT designation, having won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony award.

On the red carpet before the ceremony, Moreno quizzed interviewers like Ryan Seacrest to see if he recognized the dress from its previous appearance on the awards stage.

Moreno switched things up a bit with the gown by changed the neckline and added a bold necklace, but still kept the statement gloves. "Good lord. I leave you with that.' I did not expect to win".

"Now there are so many young people, all my old friends are dead, they have either drunk themselves to death or they have naturally popped off the vine, so I don't know all the young actors".
