In magnificent flowing gowns, the Academy Award winner consistently reigns supreme on-screen and on the red carpet

A Breathtaking Look At Meryl Streep’s Most Unforgettable Oscars Looks

Meryl Streep is the only lady we can properly label the Queen of the Academy Awards.

In her journey, the Hollywood legend has obtained a number of 21 Oscar nominations, including 4 for Supporting Actress and 17 for Lead Actress, earning herself the most nominated actor in Oscar ever. As a fact, since her first event in 1979, when she was nominated for her supporting role in “The Deer Hunter,” Streep has become a mainstay at the awards presentation, making her imprint on the red carpet.

At the Oscars, Meryl Streep wore a look that was equal parts elegant, smart, and ageless. The actress understands how and when to make a fashion statement, whether she’s wearing a plain black gown, a sequined gown, or fitted separates.

Streep donned this black dress with lace details to the 51st Academy Awards, where she was nominated for her supporting role in “The Deer Hunter,” alongside spouse Don Gummer. The diva wore the iconic gown to the BAFTAs 30 years later, and she appeared just as stunning as she did the very first time.

Streep wore a lovely embellished dress with a floral print on the top and a lower hemline for the 1984 awards event, illustrating that evening gowns can be just as elegant as gowns.

This pristine white dress that Meryl Streep donned to the 2010 event is one of our favorites. The fit is ideal, and the dazzling white is light and airy.

The actress went for gold once more, which was appropriate given that she won Best Actress for her portrayal in “The Iron Lady.” This gold Lanvin gown, together with 2010’s white dress, is at the pinnacle of our favorites list.
