Karl Lagerfeld ruins Meryl Streep’s Oscars

Meryl Streep smashed Karl Lagerfeld in a announcement this Saturday, February 25, explaining the designer destroyed her 2017 Oscars by making reproachful comments about her choice not to wear Chanel to the awards show.

“Karl Lagerfeld, a prominent designer, defamed me, my stylist, and the illustrious designer whose dress I chose to wear, in an important industry publication,” the 67-year-old actress said through her representative. “That publication printed this defamation, unchecked. Subsequently, the story was picked up globally, and continues globally, to overwhelm my appearance at the Oscars, on the occasion of my record-breaking 20th nomination, and to eclipse this honor in the eyes of the media, my colleagues and the audience.”

Women’s Wear Daily ran a story in which Lagerfeld, Chanel’s creative director, claimed that Streep had left the fashion house to go on board with another brand that would pay her to wear its design.

“I made a sketch, and we started to make the dress,” the 83-year-old German designer told the newspaper. He said he received a phone call a few days later from someone in Streep’s camp. “‘Don’t continue the dress. We found someone who will pay us,’” is what supposedly the messenger said.

Lagerfeld also offered his opinions on the unproven snub, calling the Florence Foster Jenkins star “a genius actress, but cheapness also, no?”

At the time, a rep for Streep denied Lagerfeld’s claim in an announcement to The Hollywood Reporter, saying that the designer’s allegation was absolutely false, and that it is “against her personal ethics” to be paid to wear a dress to any red carpet occasion.

Lagerfeld then delivered an apology to Streep on Saturday morning, explaining that he “misunderstood” the circumstances. “Chanel engaged in conversations with Ms. Streep’s stylist, on her request, to design a dress for her to wear to the Academy Awards,” he said in the declaration. “After an informal conversation, I misunderstood that Ms. Streep may have chosen another designer due to remuneration, which Ms. Streep’s team has confirmed is not the case. I regret this controversy and wish Ms. Streep well with her 20th Academy Award nomination.”
