Oscars 2017: Should Celebrities Get Political At Awards Shows Like Meryl Streep?

After accusing the actress-nay, national treasure-of choosing not to wear his dress to the Oscars because another brand had paid her to wear its gown, Meryl fired back. "I do not take this lightly, and Mr. Lagerfeld's generic "statement" of regret for this 'controversy" was not an apology.

On the eve of the Oscars at which she has been nominated for a record 20 time, Meryl Streep is angry, at Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel and WWD. "Somebody must be paying her" - and that Lagerfeld mistook the idle musing as fact", Foley had stated in her follow-up piece.

Apparently, Streep saw a dress from Lagerfeld's recent Chanel couture collection that she wanted to wear to Sunday's Oscars. That publication printed this defamation, unchecked. "We found somebody who will pay us", Lagerfeld said, quoting his phone call with Streep's team. He lied, they printed the lie, and I am still waiting. The fashion legend started a public battle with the actress over a Chanel gown, which he said he had started to work on for Streep to wear during Sunday's ceremony in Los Angeles. Streep completing the look with a pair of drop earrings and a voluminous blow-out, proving that her best possible riposte to the dress non-scandal was to look spectacular when she made her entrance.

"After we gift her a dress that's €100,000, we found later we had to pay". "A genius actress, but cheapness also, no?"

We asked stars on the Oscars red carpet, "What are you wearing ... tomorrow"?

So which dress did Streep wear instead? "Chanel wishes to express our continued and deep respect for Ms. Streep", the statement, as reported by multiple media outlets, read. I regret this controversy and wish Ms Streep well with her 20th Academy Award nomination.

Chanel engaged in conversations with Ms. Streep's stylist, on her request, to design a dress for her to wear to the Academy Awards. Instead of Chanel, the actress arrived at the Oscars in a blue Elie Saab gown with matching pants.

Whose side are you on this attractive beef?
