Our James St James posted some animated videos made by PBS Digital Studios and one of Meryl Streep confirmed what I had always asserted; she’s NOT a fashion person. As the fictional editor of Vogue in The Devil Wears Prada, she was totally unconvincing to me. Fantastically fun in the role, but clearly just did not wear clothes like a fashion editor or seem like a fashion person. There is such a thing and it’s a special breed –trust me, I worked at Vogue. This is odd for the greatest actress of our time who can, and HAS, played nearly every type, but she is obviously indifferent to fashion. She talks about being on Earl Blackwell’s Worst Dressed List, her becoming famous before stars were judged so harshly for their looks and fashion choices, etc. Watch this, it’s very funny and charming –very Meryl.
