Rita Moreno collects her best female supporting role for her role in West Side Story in 1962

Most of us are grateful if we can still fit into a favorite dress a year after purchase – let alone nearly 20 years later.

And when the dress in question is little more than a silk scarf with only a decorative brooch to protect your modesty, even women who've counted calories and made the most out of their gym membership can be forgiven for never going there again .

Not J-Lo. The actress and singer went to the Versace catwalk at Milan Fashion Week in the iconic green silk chiffon dress that she last wore with the Grammy almost 20 years ago. In fact, this was an even more revealing remake of the original piece – sleeveless with extra cutouts.

Best of all, as a 50-year-old twin mother, she now looked better than when she was 30.

And she's not the only celebrity that comes out in styles we saw them decades ago.

Just look at the beautiful Rita Moreno, now 87, who made a name in West Side Story.

She returned to the red carpet at the 2018 Oscars in the same dress that she wore for her prize for best supporting actor in 1962 – 56 years earlier!

At a time when we are all more aware of disposable fashion, there is nothing we would like to see than a sparing celebrity who is taking a step in the right direction.
