Meryl Streep covers the new American Vogue
Meryl Streep covers the new American Vogue
I can not tell you how happy I am to see Meryl Streep on the cover of the January issue of American Vogue! Meryl is, to me, the greatest living actress. Wether she plays Miranda Priestly in "The Devil Wears Prada", Sophie in "Sophie's choice"or Francesca in "The Bridges of Madison County" she always nails her roles and brings a character depth not many people are capable of. Her upcoming role of Margaret Thatcher in "The Iron Lady" is the 'excuse' to grace the front of the American bible.
I love that there's less Mario Testino and more Annie Leibovitz covers, especially in this case. She is a great choice to shoot a woman who has become iconic for great work and natural beauty. In a world driven by photoshopped models and endless layers of make up it's so refreshing to see Meryl look so great and so 'raw' at her 62 years. I also love the location –a grey day at the beach–, which ties the cover to last month's Charlize Theron one, and the styling –there is such a Carolina Herrera vibe to this look.

Do you love it too?
