Meryl Streep’s Vogue January 2012

  • Pin it

This is amazing news! Although slightly predictable and more in Vanity Fair’s alley, Vogue US brings Meryl Streep for the cover of their January 2012 issue.

Judging by the looks of it, I’d say it’s Annie Leibovitz, but that is yet to be confirmed (which it already has, see the update below). For the moment, all we have to admire and look at, is Vogue’s US January 2012 cover. Occasioned, biensur, by Meryl Streep’s new movie (she’s impersonating UK’s Iron Lady – and the titles I read were saying that her acting is perfect and that she’s a sure candidate for next year’s Oscars…). Which would actually explain this cover – I doubt Anna would’ve played with the wrong camp. How do you like the cover so far?

UPDATE: Official confirmation has arrived – it’s Annie Leibovitz who’s behind this cover and “Force of Nature pictorial”; here‘s the interview with Meryl.

It’s so surprising to see Meryl Streep, who’s actually a fierce feminist, playing The Iron Lady, who, despite of her groundbreaking function and importance, was notoriously unfriendly and unappreciative of other women.

But what is totally Meryl is the challenge. Her charm engine is always on and it seems to be driving her further and further on on the inspirational path. She’s now the spokesperson (and active member) of the NWHM – the National Women History Museum. A handful of brilliant ladies militating for a real life museum dedicated to the great women in American history. The strong ones. The inspiring ones… wait? – that makes sense, doesn’t it? Having the great Meryl Streep on board. She’s one of the strong ones!

And what would a woman like that wear? Not that it would actually matter anymore, but – Carolina Herrera! That dark coat dress she’s wearing for the picture with the NWHM members is just sheer elegance and distinction! And then Ralph Lauren pants for the casual look with Vince brown v-neck top below.

Again a lovely, more utilitarian yet utterly elegant and flawless Michael Kors dress for the picture in the organic broccoli field above – something she treasures and fights for irreverently (organic). Really emphasizing Meryl’s Vogue story’s title ‘A Force of Nature’

The hair and makeup were carried on by J. Roy Helland under Tonne Goodman’s style advice and vision.

Yay, Miranda Priestly on the cover of Vogue! But seriously I love Meryl so it’s hard to not like her here. She look lovely. But as usual I do not like the lay-out with all the lettering etc.

The timing for this movie is almost perfect….:)

I like this cover!
Meryl Streep is a wonderful talent and she is a good looking woman who is aging beautifully and she looks lovely here.
It is a nice change from the usually Vogue actor as models covers. : )

Meryl is inspiring. This should have been the ‘Ageless’ issue or special or whatever they call it every year. Superb cover & I like how she didn’t mind getting wet :)

I love the cover and even more that the magazine didn’t photoshoped her much, she looks great for her age.

Very enjoyable cover – finally an actress / celebrity who deserves the accolades. I like how Meryl is styled – she looks lovely. It is nice to see the celebration of a person like Meryl instead of the mindless, boring tween culture we all seem to have to endure.
