Streep's reps refuted the Chanel chief's claims that she refused to wear one of their dresses if she wasn't being paid.
Ahead of this weekend’s Oscars, many Hollywood insiders are hoping that Meryl Streep might win another award in order to get a chance to publicly trash Donald Trump again. However, one person isn’t so enamoured with her…
Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld has claimed that Streep backed out of a deal to wear a dress designed by him when her camp realised that she wasn’t going to be paid to do so.
This, of course, is in contravention of Lagerfeld’s long-standing rule that Chanel never pays celebrities to wear its clothes – even the most A-list of Hollywood royalty.

Keira Knightley's style may change, but the tulle dress is a staple.
Keira Knightley’s wedding dress is the gift that keeps on giving – a gift to herself, mostly. Knightley rocked the frock (or at least something very similar) for a Paul Newman's SeriousFun London Gala on Tuesday, Dec. 3.
The dress is definitely a great look for Knightley.
According to Us Weekly, it turns out it wasn’t the same dress after all, but style watchers would be forgiven for their mistake, since the actress has been known to love the tulle pixie look. She originally chose a very similar tulle and lace design by Rodarte for a pre-BAFTA party back in 2008, when she was dating actor Rupert Friend.

Keira Knightley will star as Coco Chanel in a movie being made to commemorate 100 years of the Chanel fashion house
Keira Knightley is among a host of stars due to star in a short film about the iconic fashion designer COCO CHANEL. The movie, is being created to mark the 100th anniversary of the French fashion house Chanel and will be directed by Karl Lagerfeld, the label’s current creative director, The Independent reports. Lagerfeld and Knightley share a mutual respect for each other and the designer often cites Keira as a muse.
The movie will be set on the French seaside town of Deauville, where the very first Chanel boutique opened up in 1913, after being financed by Captain Arthur Edward ‘Boy’ Capel. The crew were ordered to build “detailed retro sets” to recreate the era. The 27 year old actress is already a Chanel favourite, having fronted their Coco Mademoiselle perfume campaign, though the ad was pulled for being ‘overtly suggestive.’ She will be joined by Stella Tennant, Tallulah Harlech, Clotilde Hesme and Brad Kroenig in the promotional movie. It’s due to be screened at Chanel’s Cruise Show in Singapore.
Keira spoke about Lagerfeld last year, saying “Karl’s amazing. He’s an avid reader, and he speaks about five different languages, so he’ll be rattling off in English to you and in French to someone else, and in German to someone else and then the phone rings and he’s speaking Italian.”
Keira Knightley hit the town in support of fashion powerhouse and personal friend Karl Lagerfeld as he unveiled Chanel's The Little Black Jacket exhibition in London on Thursday night (October 11, 2012).
Although not in a black jacket herself, the 27 year-old screen siren did keep up with the colour requirements by wearing a black brocade dress with a black handbag to go with it. The event itself was in aid of a book of the same name being released, which features celebrity models wearing the iconic fashion item. The book, a joint project between Lagerfeld and Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld, is a reinterpretation of one of Chanel's most iconic fashion items: the black jacket.

Jennifer Lopez and her daughter Emme stole the show at Chanel’s Paris Fashion Week show yesterday (October 2, 2012). The former American Idol judge took her four year-old daughter to the Grand Palais, along with her boyfriend Casper Smart, to take in the new spring / summer 2013 collection from the label’s creative director, Karl Lagerfeld.
Female First have published snaps of the couple, along with Emme, enjoying the catwalk show from the front row. Lopez was looking chic in a low-cut white dress and Emme wore a pink Chanel dress, with a white cardigan and pink shoes. They even managed to overshadow the fact that Kanye West was there to see the show, as well. As for the show itself, Lagerfeld used wind turbines to display his new collection; after the show, he said “It's more about the mood of the times, not something you have to translate. It's all about the wind, it's in the air. I started sketching in Central Park and it was so hot that I wanted fresh air.”
Lopez was looking relaxed – most likely glad that she has left the drama of American Idol behind her. We bet she’ll be glad that it was Mariah Carey and not her that was on the end of Nicki Minaj’s foul-mouthed rant, which made its way online today, courtesy of TMZ. Jennifer Lopez left the show at the end of last season, to pursue her pop career and seems to be enjoying some time with her children and boyfriend, as well.
