Almost six a long time into her profession, Meryl Streep has cemented her standing as one of many biggest actress of all time. The three-time Oscar winner has extra complete nominations (21) than every other actor in historical past, whereas her resume is stacked with one iconic efficiency after one other. There’s a Meryl for each temper, whether or not you like your Streep coldly dismissive (as in The Satan Wears Prada), buoyant and carefree (Mamma Mia!), understated and weak (The Hours), or glamorously wacky (Dying Turns into Her).

To have a good time her Honorary Palme at Cannes’s opening ceremony on Tuesday—to which she wore a customized Dior Haute Couture gown in draped white silk, requiring 650 hours of labor—Vogue dug by means of the archives to assemble a photographic tribute to the one-of-a-kind performer.
