Meryl Streep at the 14th Annual Monte Cristo Awards

Posted on April 22, 2014

It’s always nice to see Meryl dressed how Meryl wants to dress. It helps us imaginary-style her for more … what’s the word here? More glamorous events and zero in on why her red carpet looks are almost always disappointing at those events.

At an event like this,  you get a much better idea of a star’s personal style. It’s possible she used a stylist to put this together; plenty of people do for events like this, but we suspect this is all her. It feels like it is, no? We love the look, top to bottom. There’s not a word of critique issuing from our lips. Instead, we’re spending our energy trying to come up with ways to upscale look like this for, say, the Oscars. We wish the pants-oriented ladies of stardom would just go the hell ahead and wear pants to the Oscars. It’s 2014. The world has more than accepted formal lady wear consisting of pants. Do it next year, Meryl. It’s not like Valentino and Chanel don’t make pants. The problem is that coat. It looks fabulous on her here, but every time we try and mentally upscale it, we get Dorothy Zbornak.
