What a pretty dress. You’d think we’d be able to come up with an opening line with a little more zing than that but we actually said out loud “What a pretty dress” when we saw these pictures for the first time. Might as well go with the honest reaction.
“August: Osage County” star Meryl Streep attends the 86th Oscars Nominees Luncheon in Beverly Hills, California in a Max Mara dress accessorized with a Clare Vivier clutch.
The shape is absolutely perfect on her. We think the red and pink might not have been the best choice of color for her, since she’s so pale already, but it’s striking enough and flattering enough that we don’t automatically sniff “Mmmm. Would’ve looked better in blue” at the first sight of it. We wait a few minutes before saying it.
The shoes clash with the reds of the dress and the clutch, while pretty fab, just doesn’t go. The style of it is all wrong for the dress. But that’s our Mary Louise, bless her.
