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

When it comes to fashion during one of Hollywood’s biggest nights, some stars play it safe, while others take it to the extreme.

Then you have stars like Rita Moreno who know how to turn heads while remaining classy.

Keep reading to see how the 92-year-old actress showed up to the 2024 Oscars.

The West Side Story actress delivered on her promise to “knock your socks off” when she walked the red carpet Sunday wearing an all-black 3D Badgley Mischka gown with cascading ruffles.

She styled the evening gown with opera gloves and a gold timepiece.

But neither her accessories nor her gown were the talk of the town. All eyes were focused on Moreno’s new hair.

Known for her gray pixie cut, the EGOT winner switched it up and went with a jet black look for this year’s Oscars.

While the haircut looks like the 80 for Brady actress’ newest hairdo, Moreno confirmed on the red carpet it was temporary and meant to pay tribute to a “woman I loved very much,” the late actress Chita Rivera.

“I’m just having fun wearing this wig,” she said.
