After 56 years, Rita Moreno chose to dig deep into her closet.

Legendary actress Rita Moreno, 86, dubbed an EGOT because she's won an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony, wore the same black-and-gold gown to Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles that she wore back in 1962.

The dress was updated and reconstructed to have a strapless top instead of the original Sabrina cut, but the black balloon skirt with gold floral details was mostly left unaltered. Otherwise, she even kept on the same now-vintage opera gloves.

"I would think it would tarnish!" she told Ryan Seacrest during the E! broadcast, before reminiscing about her 15-second Oscar's acceptance speech.

The ceremony, to be hosted again by Jimmy Kimmel, is the crescendo of one of Hollywood's most tumultuous awards seasons ever - one that saw cascading allegations of sexual harassment topple movie moguls, upended Oscar campaigns and new movements launched to improve gender equality throughout the industry.
