Meryl Streep is denying that she will be paid to wear a dress at the 2017 Academy Awards after she was accused of accepting money by Chanel‘s Karl Lagerfeld.
The legendary actress is nominated for her 20th Oscar this weekend for her work in Florence Foster Jenkins after winning three awards in the past.
Meryl was reportedly set to wear Chanel, but her team told the fashion house to stop making the dress. “I made a sketch, and we started to make the dress,” Lagerfeld told WWD. He says someone from the actress’ team called days later and said, “Don’t continue the dress. We found somebody who will pay us.”
“After we gift her a dress that’s 100,000 euros [$105,000], we found later we had to pay [for her to wear it]. We give them dresses, we make the dresses, but we don’t pay,” Lagerfeld added.
Meryl‘s rep told THR that the claim is “absolutely false” and that it’s against her ethics to accept money to wear a dress on the red carpet.

Ryan Seacrest is opening up about the fire that broke out at his house this week, a house that used to be owned by Ellen DeGeneres.
“I didn’t set a fire,” the 42-year-old former American Idol host said while being accused by Ellen of setting the fire at her old house. “Let’s just say the fire inspector called and said, ‘Who is the previous owner?’”
“There was an electrical box that somehow caught fire by the trash cans outside of the house at 1:30 in the morning on Sunday night and it started to climb up a tree. So, the fire department came and for 15 minutes or so, put it out. Thank god they’re 30 seconds away down the street,” Ryan said.
Watch the rest of the interview to find out what Ryan did for the firefighters and what he has to say about rumors of him possibly reuniting with Simon Cowell to host America’s Got Talent.
