Jamie Lee Curtis turned her Oscars red-carpet moment into a tribute for the late Betty White.

Curtis — who will honor the "Golden Girls" star during the Academy Awards — sported a Stella McCartney gown as she arrived at Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday.

And Curtis revealed that there's a special reason why she picked the British designer for the Oscars.

"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 animal rights activist," Curtis told Access Hollywood on the red carpet, adding that she felt the dress was "telling Betty's story."

According to McCartney's official website, none of the designer's products are tested on animals.

"We respect a very strict ethical charter. All our fragrances are vegan friendly, which means that no ingredient is tested in animals or comes from animal origins," it reads.

The brand has also not used any products with PVC plastic since 2010, and has been angora-free following a 2013 PETA campaign.

White — who died at the age of 99 in December — was an animal rights activist who was especially passionate about zoos. She served as a trustee of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association for more than 40 years. In 2012, she published "Betty & Friends: My Life at the Zoo."

The "Golden Girls" star told The Smithsonian in 2012 that she once dreamed of becoming a zookeeper or forest ranger.

"What the zoos do, that some of the 'zoophobes' don't understand, is work not only with the captive animals but also with the dwindling populations in the wild," she said. "What they learn from the captive animals they can apply to the populations in the wild. In many cases, species are still around that would not be without zoos."

Curtis starred in "You Again" with White in 2010. She paid tribute to her costar on Instagram after news broke of White's passing, asking fans to donate to an animal advocacy group in her honor.

"What women WANT is to live a life like Betty White," Curtis wrote.

"Full of love and creativity and integrity and humor and dedication and a life of service to animals."
