Mother-Daughter Fashion Success: Meryl Streep’s Daughters Chose That Winning Oscar Dress

By  | 

Meryl StreepTaking fashion tips from your daughter may be a little irksome, no matter how much they are already influencing your fashion choices. The fear of putting your appearance in the hands of your young daughter can have horrendous consequences, especially if you don’t have the heart to remove her recommended ensemble before leaving the house. But Meryl Streep can thank her 20-something daughters Mamie Gummer and Grace Gummer for choosing the look that will be immortalized in her latest Oscar win. Those ladies dressed their mommy well!

Meryl’s girls reportedly took one look at what their mother was planning to wear for the big night and vetoed the outfit. Streep’s team apparently refuses to name the designer or style of the dress. But with the help of Mamie and Grace, Meryl eventually selected that gold lamé Lanvin gown made from plastic water bottles. Sources also suggest that another reason Meryl wasn’t all that invested in her red carpet look is that she was certain that Viola Davis was slated to win. I suppose if anyone would say “oh, I’ll just wear this old thing” to the Oscars it would be the iconic Meryl Streep.

But not only did Meryl’s daughters choose to encase their talented mother in gold, but their color choice seemed to foreshadow her big win that evening. What really is more fitting than accomplished actress and mother Meryl sauntering off resembling the honor that she was practically fashioned to achieve?

That her daughters picked that dress. That’s what.
