Actress Jamie Lee Curtis paid tribute to the late Betty White in several ways at the 2022 Oscars. First, Jamie shared that she was wearing a Stella McCartney dress and wanted the designer to dress her for the awards to represent Betty and her love of animals.

When asked about the gorgeous gown, she said, “I am representing Betty White. Betty White was an animal rights activist and when I knew I was going to make a statement about her I went to Stella McCartney, who is an animals rights activist and whose mother Linda McCartney was an animal rights activist.”

She continued, “Stella, who uses sustainable materials [and] non-animal materials. I went to [her] and said ‘Hey, is it possible you might have something for me to wear to the Oscars?’ And they made me this dress. I feel like it is telling Betty’s story.”

During the awards ceremony, Jamie appeared on stage with an adorable puppy named Mac-N-Cheese to honor Betty during the In Memoriam segment. While holding the dog, she said, “She was not only a Golden Girl, she was a legend who brightened every room she walked in and brought a smile to the faces of all who watched her on the screen. And day in and day out for almost a century, she was a woman who cared so much for not just her two-legged friends but for animals just like this.”

Jamie added, “So the greatest gift you could give Betty White is to open your heart and your home and adopt a rescue dog just like Mac-N-Cheese from Paw Works. So thank you, Betty, thank you for being a friend to us all.” What a lovely tribute to the beloved actress who died at the age of 99 on Dec. 31.
