Here are some of the best looks looks from the red carpet of 90th Academy Awards. USA TODAY

A look so nice she donned it twice.

One Day at a Time actress Rita Moreno selected an ensemble for Sunday's Academy Awards ceremony that she's already worn. Moreno previously wore the full black skirt with gold, floral accents in 1962, the evening she won an Oscar for her supporting role in West Side Story.

Moreno, 86, reflected on the look she said came from the Philippines and her speech from her winning evening with E! on the red carpet.

"This fabric is made out of obi, which is the sash that Japanese women use on their kimonos; they’re usually folded over and over and over. This is one piece of fabric," she told the entertainment news outlet of the ensemble she said has been hanging in her closet.

"I had no idea I was going to win, I thought for sure it was going to be Judy Garland for Judgment at Nuremberg, which was a big deal; she was doing a dramatic role," Moreno recalled of the evening and her short speech. "I said, 'Hey, I flew in from the Philippines, just in case,' which is where this gown was made."

Moreno was in the Philippines filming Cry of Battle at the time.
