Karl Lagerfeld And Meryl Streep In Dispute Over Oscars Dress

Saturday, 25 February 2017 - 10:53


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.
