“After giving her a dress that costs 100,000 euros, we learned that we had to pay more. We give them clothes, we make them, but we do not pay ”
One of the most valued actresses in the world of film and who this year opted for her 20th Oscar nomination for best actress, Meryl Streep, has been the protagonist of the latest incident with Karl Lagerfeld, creative director of Chanel.
The actress has been in evidence of the world by the greed. The dispute begins with Karl Lagerfeld, who claimed to be making a dress for the actress. € 100,000 in Haute Couture dress, which process had to stop by a call from Meryl’s representative. He told Karl that at the Oscar gala would not wear Chanel since they had found another designer who would pay him to wear his luxury brand.
“She’s a great actress, but a little bit stingy, isn´t she?”
That was Karl’s response to the comment. And it was expensive, since the famous actress was quite angry although the couturier has already tried to apologize.
Karl Lagerfeld, a prominent designer, slandered me and my stylist, and the illustrious designer whose dress I chose to wear has done so in a major industry publication – said Meryl Streep according to a statement published by WWD. He lied and I’m still waiting for him to apologize. And Karl Lagerfeld replied, After an informal conversation, I misunderstood that Mrs. Streep might have picked another designer to charge for it, but I have confirmed Mrs. Streep’s team that is not the case. I regret this controversy and I wish Ms. Streep to do well with her 20th nomination.
But you’ll all wonder: Who would be the lucky designer to wear Meryl Streep at the Oscar gala at the Dolby Theater? That dazzling dark blue Haute Couture dress with rhinestones and word of honor, is by designer Elie Saab.
The dispute is not yet over, because Meryl Streep is still waiting for Karl to deny it. What is certain is that the dispute gave rise to good times at the Oscar gala at the hands of Jimmy Kimmel, who asked the actress: Nice dress Meryl, is it an Ivanka? (Alluding to the latest dispute that recently took place between the actress and Donald Trump).
