Fashion Police at the 2012 Oscars: Meryl Streep in Lanvin

Meryl Streep in a gold Lanvin dress at the 2012 Oscars

At every Oscars ceremony, there always has to be at least one person who comes dressed as the statuette.

We guess in this case it was rather fitting that the person in question happened to Meryl Streep, who was named Best Actress in a Leading Role for her performance in The Iron Lady.  

For the ceremony, Meryl went from Iron Lady to Gold Lady, in this shimmering gold Lanvin gown, and we give her major props for planning ahead and co-ordinating so nicely with Oscar himself. You don’t get that level of attention to detail from most celebs, do you?

    Perfection. I guess that gold worked out well for her.

    Best dress she’s worn on the red carpet for a long while. I at the Yale when she was a grad student there in the theater department and performed in student productions. Even then, everyone knew she was very special.

    I didn’t like the dress and feel it did not flatter Ms. Streep at all.

    BEAUTIFUL!! Meryl is the queen of everything, especially red carpet fashion, in my book. Never looks trashy or too young for her age, but NEVER, EVER wears anything too aging. Her sleeve and neckline choices are always spot-on.

    I find it interesting to note that she was wearing a long sleeved gold dress when she won in 1982, too.
