Jamie Lee Curtis, actress, showed support for Ukraine by wearing a blue ribbon on a red carpet appearance at Oscars.
The Freaky Friday actor, now 63, is among other celebrities who stand by refugees throughout the world as Putin’s Russia invades the country.
The ribbons were distributed by the United Nations Refugee Agency to the stars for them to wear during and before the 94th Academy Awards.
Anadil Hossain was the UN High Commission for Refugees’ Principal Communications Advisor. “This year’s Oscar-nominated films include some powerful stories centered on the themes of refugees, displacement, home and belonging – Encanto, Flee, Three Songs for Benazir, Belfast, and Dune – at a time when the world is witnessing the largest refugee crisis since WW2.”

The hashtag #withtherefugees is included on the ribbons, which are meant to be used to support those fleeing Ukraine and the 85 million refugees around the globe.
Anadil has been added: “Artists have been wanting to show their solidarity for Ukraine, and we wanted to ask them to extend this support to the almost 84million people forced to flee. Whenever. Wherever.”
Jamie, a Hollywood legend, was radiant in a midnight blue beaded dress and made it to the red carpet tonight.
The glamour of the red carpet was also shared by Vanessa Hudgens, Nicky Hilton and other stars like Nicky Hilton.
Actress Vanessa, 33, looked stunning in a black sequinned, cut-out gown as she took photos.
Nicky Hilton chose a flowing pale pink gown to show off her baby bump.
Lily James looked stunning in pink in a strapless lace dress with pooling at her feet.
The ceremony will be held on Sunday, February 27th at 8 pm Eastern Time.
The awards will be broadcast live from the UK at 1am on March 28th. It will last around three to four hours, as it has in previous years.
