Meryl Streep attends the premiere of “Suffragette” on the opening night during the BFI London Film Festival at Leicester Square in London, England.
It’s Meryl serving up Grande Dame in that very Meryl way. It’s not what we’d call particularly stylish but it’s very much of her style. She doesn’t like fussy clothes or trendy clothes of even clothes that draw too much attention to her. She likes to be covered up and comfortable above all else. This gets the job done. If we’re being nitpicky (which of course we are), we’d say we don’t much like the color, which looks dated, and the twist at the waist doesn’t actually do much for the design. On the other hand, her makeup and jewelry are both gorgeous, which is absolutely the right way to go when choosing such a relatively plain gown. No, it’s not a stylish look, but it’s a good one. More importantly, it’s one hundred percent her look.
