I wish there were solo photos of Meryl from that night to get the full effect of the eggplant long-sleeve draped gown she wore from designer Elie Saab‘s fabulous Fall/Winter 2011 collection.
From what I can see, her hair was beautifully styled in large pulled curls, and her make-up was flawless. I wear glasses and avoid contacts, so I like seeing her rock her specs for the black tie event. This is a lovely color on Meryl, and the dress seemed to be a great fit. I wonder what shoes she wore.
Most of Meryl’s family was also in attendance for the dinner; including her daughters Grace and Mamie Gummer, and her son Henry Gummer.
