Meryl Streep In Max Mara – 86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon

Meryl Streep In Max Mara - 86th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon

Meryl Streep attended the 86th Oscars Nominee Luncheon at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on Monday (February 10) in Beverly Hills, California.

We all love Meryl, she’s a great actress, but this blog is about fashion and as much as I try, I can’t get excited about her style.

Even though she’s wearing a pretty Max Mara pink-and-red printed dress, which I must stress is a huge departure for her usually drab red carpet looks, the styling lets her down.

The red Jimmy Choo ‘Luna’ peep-toes are perfect, but the Clare Vivier monogrammed clutch was a bizarre choice to say the least.

File this under so close.

Meryl Streep In Stella McCartney – 2014 SAG Awards

Meryl Streep In Stella McCartney - 2014 SAG Awards

Meryl Streep joined the star-studded list at the 2014 SAG Awards, hosted Saturday night (January 18) at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

The outstanding leading role nominee for ‘August: Osage County’ wore a Stella McCartney Fall 2013 black, off-the-shoulder dress with contrasting, sheer linear design.

As usual, she failed to really impress on the red carpet. While this trend-forward look had a cool breeziness, I was missing the elegance here that Meryl would wear so well. The frock was ultimately compromised by a lack of structure and a too-casual vibe for the spirit of the Screen Actors Guild evening.

Black peep-toe heels, a satin Christian Louboutin ‘Plitz’ clutch and gold cuffs and earrings did nothing to remedy the situation.

2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards Red Carpet Roundup

2014 Critics' Choice Movie Awards Red Carpet Roundup

We’ve seen a roundup of the men, so here is a roundup of the ladies who attended the 19th Annual Critics’ Choice Movie Awards at Barker Hangar on Thursday (January 16) in Santa Monica, California alongside the likes of Cate Blanchett, Amy Adams and Lupita Nyong’o.

Meryl Streep: Like Julia Roberts – her red carpet pal – and Matthew McConaughey, Meryl opted for sunglasses on the red carpet, much to my chagrin. The actress wore a Stella McCartney embroidery-detailed navy dress with flared sleeves styled with black tights, Ferragamo pumps and a fold-over Louboutin clutch. I’m rarely impressed with her red carpet looks and this is no exception. I wish Helen Mirren’s stylist would take Meryl under his wing.

Oprah Winfrey: The TV host wore an emerald green Azzedine Alaia dress, belted at the waist to accentuate her hourglass shape, which she styled with Lorraine Schwartz jewels.

Abigail Breslin: Her pastel-grey Badgley Mischka gown makes her look much older and the colour is washing her out. The only thing I like here is the hair and makeup.

Meryl Streep In Michael Kors – 2014 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala

Meryl Streep In Michael Kors - 2014 Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala

Meryl Streep was almost unrecognisable on the red carpet at the 25th Annual Palm Springs International Film Festival Awards Gala held at the Palm Springs Convention Center on Sunday, January 4, in Palm Springs, California.

The actress wore a dressy-casual look donning a black Michael Kors knit sweater with gold studs from the Resort 2013 collection, styled with black tapered pants, a black Michael Kors barrel clutch and black pumps.

As this was quite a dressy affair, some might be disappointed by this offering, but considering Meryl’s choices aren’t always so flattering, I have to say I love this from head-to-toe and find it very refreshing.

Meryl Streep In Gucci – ‘August: Osage County’ LA Premiere

Meryl Streep In Gucci - ‘August Osage County’ LA Premiere

Meryl Streep joined co-stars Julia Roberts and Juliette Lewis on the red carpet at the Regal Cinemas L.A. Live on Monday (December 16) for the ‘August: Osage County’ LA premiere.

The 64-year-old actress wore a knee-length Gucci Pre-Fall 2013 v-neck white dress which she styled with snakeskin-print peep-toes, a brown clutch, a silver necklace and glasses.

Sadly, none of the accessories are working for me. They don’t enhance the look and they definitely don’t complement each other.

This would’ve been an outstanding look had it been styled better, because the dress couldn’t be more perfect for her.
