Jamie Lee Curtis honoured the late Betty White with her outfit at the Academy Awards on Sunday (27.03.22).
The ‘Halloween’ actress wished to spend tribute to the ‘Golden Girls’ star – who died previous December aged 99 – mainly because she was questioned to honour her as element of the ceremony so turned to designer Stella McCartney for her costume due to the fact the designer shares Betty’s enthusiasm for animal rights.
Showing off her gorgeous navy robe, the 63-12 months-previous star advised ‘Access Hollywood’: “Betty White was an animal legal rights activist and when I knew I was heading to make a assertion about her I went to Stella McCartney, who is an animals ideal activist. Stella, who uses sustainable resources [and] non-animal elements.
“I went to [her] and explained, ‘Hey, is it doable you could possibly have something for me to have on to the Oscars?’ And they made me this dress. I really feel like it is telling Betty’s story.”
In preserving with her concept, Jamie opted to accessorise her costume with recycled platinum and ethically-sourced diamond marquise star earrings by Cathy Waterman.
The ‘True Lies’ actress spoke about Betty – who she starred with in 2010 film ‘You Again’ all through the show’s In Memoriam segment.
Coming on phase at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood with a pet, she reported: “She was not only a Golden Woman, she was a legend who brightened just about every space she walked in and introduced a smile to the faces of all who viewed on her on the monitor and working day in and day out for practically a century, she was a lady who cared not just for her two-legged good friends but for animals just like this.
“So the best reward you could give Betty White is to open up your heart and residence and adopt a rescue canine just like Mac’N’Cheese from Paw Will work. Thank you Betty, for getting a friend to us all.”
