There’s no question that Meryl Streep has displayed incredible consistency as a powerhouse actress — this Sunday will mark her seventeenth Academy Award nomination — but style-wise, she’s been a bit all over the map. To her credit, the occasional misstep has only made the journey all that much more fun (who wants to see another overly styled celebot?), and the woman simply radiates self-confidence and a certain kind of glamour that has just the right amount of humor.

Click through for eighties-era metallic suits that would make Prabal proud, a suntanned Streep riding the New York City subway, and movie stills of the actress alongside her many leading men.

Cosmopolitan UK is just giving us women what we want: a Prince Harry lookalike model posing naked! (Oh, and there’s some other guy in this photo, too.) Unfortunately, their diamond jubilees are hidden from the camera during this a fratty locker room moment shot by photographer Alison Jackson for UK Cosmo‘s 40th birthday. Something tells me the Queen will not be amused. [The Daily Beast via Cosmopolitan UK]
