“Your self emerges more clearly over time” – Meryl Streep

January 2, 2012 § Leave a comment

I haven’t seen a Meryl Streep film I didn’t like. Whether she is playing a divorcee  fighting a child custody battle in Kramer vs. Kramer or playing the Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher, I just can’t get enough of her empowering female leads! She is, undoubtedly, one of America’s greatest actresses.  She embodies beauty and elegance and captivates audiences around the world with her  raw character depictions.

So imagine when I saw her on the cover of January Vogue.  I was beyond ecstatic! In the mag, she talks about her support for the creation of the National Women’s History Museum (which apparently hit a road block in Congress) in Washington, D.C. Meryl was photographed along side other inspirational political figures such as Secretary Madeleine Albright, Dr. Maya Angelou and Barbara Bush in front of the U.S. Capitol.
