The only person I was nervous about seeing on the red carpet at the 2012 Oscars tonight was Meryl Streep.

That fear disappeared when I saw her arrive wearing this stunning Lanvin gown.

I don’t ever recall a jaw-dropping moment from Meryl, so what a great occasion in which to make it happen.

Her custom made gold lamé draped Lanvin gown was accessorized with a Lanvin woven gold and strass chain link belt, a Lanvin mother-of-pearl minaudiere and Salvatore Ferragamo gold lizard sandals.

Do you agree that this is the best she has ever looked?

Or can you think of a better moment?
