Starring Meryl Streep, Jim Broadbent, Alexandra Roach, Harry Lloyd

Margaret Thatcher was prime minister of the United Kingdom the year I was born (that would be 1984) and remained squired away as a footnote in my memory under “Scary Conservative ’80s Politicians (SEE: Ronald Reagan).” I read several British newspapers and I know, nowadays, that “Thatcherite” is used as an insult. But I also knew that Margaret Thatcher — like Hillary Clinton, like Angela Merkel — was a pioneering woman in the field of politics who deserves my respect and perhaps even admiration. To see Margaret Thatcher brought to life in “The Iron Lady” by Meryl Streep was, for this liberal feminist, an absolute treat.

And if you couldn’t care less about Margaret Thatcher? You should still know “The Iron Lady” will snatch up all sorts of Oscars: possibly one for best picture, possibly one for best director, possibly one for best screenplay, possibly one for best actress, possibly one for best supporting actor, and most certainly one for hair/makeup.

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The “The Iron Lady” Premiere

A little birdie (that would be me) attended the New York City premiere of “The Iron Lady” last night and boy, were there a lot of celebs! Somehow I managed to stand three feet away from Meryl Streep without screetching “EEEE! I LOVE YOU!” and subsequently getting arrested. Somehow I doubt Amelia could exercise similar restraint were she in the presence of The Gos.

Perhaps due to the serious nature of the film — a biopic of Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom — the ladies in attendance opted for a sober little black dress look. Some were hits, some were misses. And Coco Rocha, bless her heart, accidentally got lost on the way to the Oscars red carpet.

Check out all the looks — the good, the bad, and the straight-up WTF — above!

Meryl Streep Rocks As Margaret Thatcher

Captain Obvious says: Meryl Streep is amazing. Here she is in the first trailer for “The Iron Lady,” in which she steps into Margaret Thatcher’s very sensible heels. In this clip, her aides try to spruce-up her image by telling her to loose her hat, pearls, and high voice. Her response? “I may be persuaded to hand over the hat. The pearls, however, are absolutely non-negotiable.” Love it. [NextMovie.com] Keep reading »

Meryl Streep As Margaret Thatcher Is Already A Lock For The Best Actress Oscar In 2012

Meryl Streep is a better actress in this one still photo from the upcoming Margaret Thatcher biopic, “The Iron Lady,” than Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, and Anne Hathaway in all of their films combined. Sit down and learn, bitches. Damn. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
