Karl Lagerfeld & Meryl Streep Are Fighting Over Her Oscars Gown — The Claws Are OUT!

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsFashion SmashionKarl LagerfeldMeryl StreepOscarsChanel

Karl Lagerfeld and Meryl Streep are having drama.

Oscars dress drama!

Apparently Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld and national treasure Meryl Streep are at odds over a gown.

It was reported by WWD on Thursday that Meryl had been interested in a gray silk dress from the designer's recent couture collection and asked the neckline to be changed for the Oscars.

The fashion house had reportedly acquiesced to her request and begun working on the dress when, according to Karl, he received a phone call from the actress' camp that said, "'Don't continue the dress. We found somebody who will pay us.'"

Oscars Ageism?? See Why New Study Wants #OscarsSoYoung To Be The Next Cause

The Academy may be doing better in representing people of color this year… but that doesn't mean they're completely off the hook!

Though this year's Oscars nominees are much more inclusive in terms of honoring diverse storytelling through films like Fences, Hidden Figures, and Moonlight, there's still one demo that Oscar films have largely ignored.

Well, there are a lot of stories that still aren't being properly told (but that's a different conversation, Scarlett Johansson) — however, a new report has pointed out the stark lack of representation of seniors in this year's nominees!

Researchers at USC's Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism looked at the 25 best picture nominees from 2014, 2015, and 2016 and discovered that less than 12 percent of the 1,256 speaking or named characters were 60 years old and up.

That number doesn't quite measure up to the 18.5 percent seniors make up of the U.S. population, OR the 14 percent they make of film ticket buyers.

But it does align with industry trends. In an earlier study, USC researchers found that just 11 percent of characters in the 100 top-grossing films from 2015 were over the age of 59.

Co-author of the study Stacy Smith said this underrepresentation is a "missed opportunity" for studios, explaining:
