Meryl Streep hit the black carpet on Thursday night to celebrate the 40th AFI Life Achievement Award soirèe, which honored legendary actress Shirley MacLaine.

The 62-year-old Oscar winner wore a Valentino gown from the Spring 2012 haute couture collection, with an ivory lace shirt blouse and a full pink and white floral skirt.

I’ve found this whole collection to be very feminine, but also mature and haven’t really gotten on board with any of the young starlets wearing it on the red carpet. While it even feels a bit aged on Meryl, she brings new life to the design and the cut and colors also fit in with Meryl’s natural red carpet style.

She’s wearing the dress, it’s not wearing her.

Meryl completed her look with light makeup, her glasses and a low, wavy ponytail.

The AFI Life Achievement Award tribute to Shirley MacLaine will premiere on TV Land on Saturday, June 24 at 9PM ET/PST.
