Meryl Streep (the most nominated actor in history) through the years Image by: Getty Images
From her first nomination for The Deerhunter to her 20th nod in 2017 for Florence Foster Jenkins.
On Tuesday, January 24 Meryl Streep became the actor with the most academy award nominations ever, with 20. Which wasn't that much of a change, since she also held the previous record. Overrated? The academy certainly doesn't think so. And neither do fans, some of which have been following her career since The Deerhunter and some of which who were introduced to Streep in The Devil Wears Prada (both of which earned her nominations, by the way).
In honour of Streep's record-breaking year, we take a look back at some of her biggest career moments—and of course chart her style along the way.
Meryl Streep was nominated for the first time in 1979 for her role in The Deerhunter. Here she is in a classic lace outfit with sporting a killer blowout.
Streep won the Oscar for her role in Sophie's Choice in 1982. She wore a glitzy and roomy (she was pregnant at the time) gown to collect her award.
Here, Meryl Streep debuted a shorter 'do in 1983. We also love the sheer detail of her white ensemble.
In 1989 Streep stepped into the off-the-shoulder trend on the red carpet. She was nominated for her role in A Cry in the Dark.
In 2004 Streep won an Emmy for her role in Angels in America. She wore another off-the-shoulder look, will a full skirt and sash for a belt.
In 2005, Streep donned this white Valentino ensemble to Fashion Group International's Night of Stars. Later, Valentino himself would make an appearance in The Devil Wears Prada.
For an event with the Christopher Reeve Foundation in 2005, Streep wore a classic black suit and accessorized in great green earrings.
For the 2009 Academy Awards, where she was nominated for her role in Doubt, Streep wore this silky dress by Alberto Ferretti.
For her role in Julie & Julia, Streep won the Golden Globe. She wore a simple black dress by Chris March and accessorized with a strong red lip—perfect!
Meryl wowed the crowd (and matched her Oscar statuette) at the 2012 Academy Awards. She won for her role in The Iron Lady, and wore this stunning dress by Lanvin.
We're not used to seeing Meryl this dressed down, but this great MaxMara dress was a nice, light pick for the Oscar winner.
For the premiere of Suffragette in 2015, Streep wore an electric blue Lanvin gown.
Meryl Streep was both nominated (for her role in Florence Foster Jenkins) and honoured with the Cecil B. DeMIlle Award for her contribution to the entertainment industry. She delivered a passionate and inspiring speech in a bejewelled Givenchy dress that. It's safe to say, that this was Meryl's moment.

Featuring Emma Stone, Amy Adams, Meryl Streep and more!
Pair red carpet veterans such as Amy Adams and Emma Stone with fashion’s newest “it girl", Ruth Negga, and you’ve got yourself a highly entertaining awards season. It all culminates with Hollywood’s biggest night, the Academy Awards, and we’re on pins and needles to see which fabulous gown the Oscar-nominated actresses will wear. Here are some recent runway looks that we would love to see have their own red carpet moment.
Although Adams isn’t nominated for her role in the sci-fi box office smash, Arrival, the movie itself earned eight nominations, including best picture.
Adams almost always strikes all the right notes on the red carpet while favouring Veronica Lake waves and body-conscious gowns in a jewel tone hues.
We think the 42-year-old will go for something a little more subdued because of the lack of a nomination. We’re banking on a black staples column gown, similar to this Armani Privé beauty from the spring/summer collection.
We’re keeping a close eye on the Ethiopian-Irish actress who's been nominated for her portrayal of Mildred Loving in Loving. Negga wowed us all at this year’s Golden Globes when she showed up in a fitted silver sequined Louis Vuitton gown, complete with a gold centre zipper.
Although we haven’t seen a lot of her at big fashion events, from the looks of things she’s a risk taker and she adores a good embellishment such as lace, beading or sequins. We’re thinking she’ll show up in something covered in lace with glittering embellishments, like this gown from Givenchy pre-fall 2017.
Nominated for best leading role in LaLa Land, Stone is the favourite to take home the little gold man, along with slaying it on the red carpet.
Not only does she always nail it on the big screen, but her gown and hair and makeup selections are always top notch. But the best thing about Stone’s red carpet style is she’s never boring, always shaking up her gown and designer selections. This award season alone we’ve seen her in Chanel, Valentino and Alexander McQueen. We’re feeling a floral vibe with a wee bit of colour and tons of tulle, like this Zuhair Murad gown.
This year Streep became the actor with the most Academy Award nominations ever—her nom for Florence Foster Jenkins bumps it up to 20! Meaning, she broke her own record.
Though Streep is much more known for her acting chops than her red carpet moments, she’s always true to her own esthetic. She's been spotted wearing Givenchy at the last few red carpet events, but we think she’ll try something else, something dramatic and simple, like this cape-back silky gown from Valentino.
From architectural masterpieces to classic old Hollywood glamour, the Academy Award winner and nominated (this year for Jackie) star has had some stand-out red carpet moments.
At the Golden Globes this year the expectant mom breezed onto the red carpet in a vintage-esque sunny Prada gown. Portman channelled Kennedy Onassis with a modern take on the former first lady’s iconic bouffant, classic makeup and wore a dress similar to a yellow frock that she once wore to the Metropolitan Opera House in 1975.
Although she’ll likely be wearing a custom gown because of how far along she is in her pregnancy, we think it will be less saturated and more glittery, something with an empire waist and a centred slit, like this sequinned-embellished georgette Zuhair Murad gown.
Williams, who is nominated for best-supporting actress for her role in Manchester by the Sea has been owning the red carpet all season long. She’s the current celeb spokesperson for Louis Vuitton so we know she’ll likely be clad in one of the French fashion houses gowns.
