She got a second chance to redeem herself for her 2017 Academy Awards snafu, so why not recycle the same dress she wore to the award show a year ago for good luck? Faye Dunaway took the stage alongside Warren Beatty once again during the 2018 Oscars on Sunday, March 4, donning the same Esteban Cortazar double-breasted tuxedo dress she rocked on the 2017 Oscars red carpet. Check out the repeated-outfit down below!
“Faye Dunaway really gets fashion! She loves and understands young designers like @ECortazar, who made this for her based on a look from his upcoming show,” the 77-year-old’s celebrity stylist, Elizabeth Stewart, wrote on Instagram back on Feb. 26, 2017. We have to say, we can’t blame Faye for wanting to recycle the dress — she looks great in it!

Faye and Warren got a do-over to announce the winner of Best Picture for the second year in a row after they accidentally announced La La Land as the winner instead of Moonlight last year. During the 2017 award show, Warren was handed the incorrect envelope — he received the envelope for Actress in a Leading Role, which read “Emma Stone, La La Land.” When he confusedly showed it to Faye, she only saw “La La Land” and read it aloud. Thus, one of the most embarrassing moments in Oscars history was born.
Luckily, the second time around, everything went as smoothly as possible. “It’s so nice seeing you again,” Warren joked once he got up on-stage. “Presenting is lovelier the second time around,” Faye cutely added. The Shape of Water took home the coveted Best Picture award, beating out Call Me By Your Name, Darkest Hour, Dunkirk, Get Out, Lady Bird, Phantom Thread, The Post, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. And this time, the correct winner was announced the first time — no redos needed for next year!
