    Meryl Streep’s Surprising Dress Designer: ‘Project Runway’ Alum Chris*March! – Style News - StyleWatch - People.com



    Dressing a Golden Globes winner is nothing short of a dream come true for any budding designer. And, Sunday night, that dream became a reality for Project Runway’s season four alum and fan favorite Chris March as Meryl Streep took the stage in his design!

    The designer, who met the actress through her hair and makeup team, was called about a month ago to work on a design for Meryl’s double-nomination at the Globes. “I wanted to faint!” Chris tells PEOPLE about receiving the call. “I have always wanted to design something for someone like that, and it was a great and amazing opportunity.”

    Soon thereafter, Chris met with Meryl to discuss his vision. “I liked the idea of putting a belt on an evening gown–I think it gives [a gown] a modern twist. I sketched it out quickly and she really liked it,” Chris says.

    And while Meryl might be one of the biggest stars in Tinseltown, Chris says meeting her was anything but intimidating. “She is the sweetest person you can imagine. She’s very friendly and welcoming and I wasn’t nervous at all.”

    After turning out Meryl’s dress in under a month, all the hard work paid off when Chris watched the Julie & Julia star take the stage to receive her Golden Globe for best leading actress. “I almost had a heart attack when Colin Farrell read her name. It was very exciting to see her come up on stage wearing a dress that I made with my own two hands,” says Chris. “I thought it made her look tall and thin and comfortable and confident. It looked great!”

    Chris’s other favorites of the night included Marion Cotillard in her emerald Dior and Drew Barrymore in a delicate Atelier Versace. But no one stunned him like Cher. “She looked like she was about 20 years-old! She looked amazing! And, she wore something a little wow and interesting,” says Chris.

    Though the designer remains tight-lipped on whether Meryl will continue to wear his designs during awards season, he says he wouldn’t mind dressing Lady Gaga or Christina Aguilera too. Now that’s something we’d love to see! Tell us: What do you think of Meryl Streep’s dress?–Andrea DeSimone

    I remember Chris! Loved him on Project Runway, but I gotta say this dress isn't very special. I mean Meryl Streep calls you and asks you to design something for her to wear to an awards ceremony and you come up with this?

    Meryl is fab and she deserved a better dress.

    ^^^ agree. the dress is ok, not great. hard to tell from these pics, but the fabric makes the skirt look heavy.

    Epic fail. Why call attention to an older actress's arm fat? I mean, pointing an arrow to it would have been about as subtle.
