Rita Moreno, 92, debuts shocking hair change at 2024 Oscars

When Rita Moreno graced the red carpet on Sunday, she fulfilled her promise to captivate with her fashion choice.

Adorned in an all-black 3D Badgley Mischka gown featuring cascading ruffles, the West Side Story actress exuded elegance.

Accompanying her ensemble were opera gloves and a gold timepiece, adding a touch of sophistication. However, it wasn’t her attire that stole the spotlight; it was Moreno’s striking new hairstyle.

Renowned for her gray pixie cut, the EGOT winner surprised everyone with a jet black look at this year’s Oscars.

Despite resembling the iconic style of the 80 for Brady actress, Moreno clarified on the red carpet that it was a temporary change, intended as a tribute to the late actress Chita Rivera, whom she cherished dearly.

“I’m simply enjoying experimenting with this wig,” Moreno remarked, embracing the opportunity to pay homage to a significant figure in her life.
