While Meryl Streep was in conversation with Chanel about a custom Oscars dress, we're glad she went with this Elie Saab Haute Couture number. After all the back and forth about what she might or might not wear, Meryl's deep teal off-the-shoulder design feels like a breath of fresh air. The actress accessorized with a matching Charlotte Olympia purse and Fred Leighton jewels, playing up the beading on her gown just enough. Scroll for an all-angles look at the final star to show up to the Academy Awards. We aren't surprised Meryl pulled a Beyoncé and made us wait — her ensemble is the epitome of elegance, after all.
