Meryl Streep has made a surprise visit at yesterday’s Hamptons International Film Festival to join Mike Nichols and others to honor costume designer Ann Roth. At the festival, Roth was presented with the fest’s Golden Starfish Award for lifetime achievement in costume design, co-presented by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Meryl Streep and Ann Roth are long time collaborators. Since their first time working together on “Silkwood”, Roth has made costumes for eleven more Streep films, including “Postcards from the Edge”, “The Hours”, “Mamma Mia!” and most recently “Julie & Julia”. A four-time Oscar nominee, Roth has won the Academy Award for Best Costume Design for “The English Patient” in 1997. Pictures from the event can be found in the image library.
