There is an art to recycling -- especially if it's your winning dress for an event you have worn previously. 

We are talking about Rita Moreno who looked elegant walking in her 1962 Oscar gown that underwent some changes to become her 2018 gown. Her black and gold dress was created in Manila and was strapless to start with but this time around she made it into a bustier that she paired with matching black gloves, and heavy accessories. She wore a black headband, a black and gold collar necklace, a chunky bracelet and earrings.

Rita had earlier tweeted: “Wait till you see what I’m wearing!!!”

Interestingly, Rita won Oscar in 1962 for Best Supporting Actress for her role in film "West Side Story". At the time, she told Ryan Seacrest: “I would think it would tarnish.”
