Meryl Streep’s rousing “grit and grace” speech hailing Hillary Clinton got attention, fersure. But what she wore at the Democratic National Convention was the biggest sensation.
Her American flag dress was making a curtain call, though. The Oscar-winner has worn it before.
As The Telegraph recounted: “Streep first wore the stars and stripes knee-length chiffon dress by French designer Catherine Malandrino in 2009 to promote the film Doubt in 2009 in Paris.”
In any case, for those who retired early, Streep said Tuesday night in Philadelphia:
“We got some fight left in us, don’t we? What does it take to be the first female anything? It takes grit and it takes grace.
“Hillary Clinton has taken some fire over 40 years of her fight for families and children. How does she do it? That’s what I want to know. Where does she get her grit and her grace? Where do any of our female firsts, our path breakers, where do they find that strength?”
