According to my calculations, Meryl Streep celebrated her 62nd birthday last week. Happy Birthday Meryl, hope Peter Jensen sent you something from his 2012 Resort Collection! The Danish designer has chosen Meryl as his muse for a range of seventies-inspired pieces in a retro-tastic colour palette. That's Not My Age loves Streep Chic. You can't beat the paired-down, tomboyish-feel of a classic trench, skinny ankle-crop trouser and simple shirt - a grown-up, mannish look that's totally in keeping with Phoebe Philo's Céline Classics for autumn 2011.
Here's a photograph taken on the set of Kramer vs Kramer in 1979 and a neat blazer and shirt from Jensen's collection:
Streep won an Academy Awards for best actress in Kramer vs Kramer and apparently, in all the excitement, left it on the back of a toilet in the ladies' room. Not quite sure where her Sophie's Choice Oscar ended up.
I'll definitely be doing Streep Style, will you?
Thank you to young blogger Glitterbird for the head's up on the collection.
