Meryl Streep's Stylist Clarifies Conversations with 'Chanel' Over Oscars Dress

Meryl Streep‘ stylist is speaking out following controversy surrounding the dress she is set to wear to the upcoming Oscars ceremony.

The legendary actress was in talks with Chanel but Karl Lagerfeld claims that Meryl decided against the dress unless the company would pay her.

“As a stylist working with a nominee for any major event, it’s industry standard for designers to propose gown ideas and sketches — some custom, some not depending on the occasion. In the case of Chanel’s submission, which was presented with full knowledge that Ms. Streep and I — her stylist — were having conversations with various brands, we were shown sketches of a dress from their most recent couture collection. Although [it was] an exquisite gown from the existing collection, we decided to go in a different direction, with another designer,” her stylist Micaela Erlanger said in a statement.

Micaela added, “At no point were there any conversations regarding monetary compensation. Nor were any other brands considered based on their willingness to pay for placement. This is not how my company operates and is very much a practice in conflict with Ms. Streep‘s personal ethics. Any reports or quotes stating otherwise are a complete fabrication.”

Chanel followed up by releasing their own statement, which agreed with Meryl‘s stylist.

Meryl Streep Denies Being Paid to Wear Dress at Oscars 2017

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 tells JustJared.com that the story “is a complete lie. Ms. Streep would never wear anything in exchange for payment of any kind. It is against her ethics and simply is not true.”

Meryl Streep Takes Aim at Donald Trump Once Again During Human Rights Campaign Gala 2017 Speech

Meryl Streep continues to call out Donald Trump.

The 67-year-old actress addressed the President again while accepting an award during the 2017 Human Rights Campaign Greater New York Gala at Waldorf Astoria Hotel on Saturday evening (February 11) in New York City.

“We should not be surprised that fundamentalists, of every stripe, are exercised and fuming. We should not be surprised that these profound changes come at a steeper cost than we originally thought,” Meryl said (via THR). “If we live through this precarious moment, if his catastrophic instinct to retaliate doesn’t lead us to nuclear winter, we will have much to thank our current leader for. He will have woken us up to how fragile freedom is. The whip of the executive, through a Twitter feed, can lash and intimidate, punish and humiliate, delegitimize the press and imagined enemies with spasmodic regularity and easily provoked predictability.”"

She also referred to Trump calling her overrated, saying, “Yes, I am the most overrated, overdecorated and, currently, over-berated actress, who likes football, of my generation. But that is why you invited me here! Right?”

In case you forgot, Meryl took aim at him during her celebrated Golden Globes speech last month.
