So it was no surprise when Streep, 67, stylishly took a page from Diane Keaton‘s fashion book to honor her at the American Film Institute (AFI)’s event — sponsored by Audi — in Los Angeles on Thursday, where Keaton, 71, became the 45th recipient of the Life Achievement Award.
Streep copied her longtime pal’s signature style, borrowing from the boys in a tie, hat, blazer and high-waisted pant that Keaton’s title role in Woody Allen’s Annie Hall required of her in 1977. Surely she was returning the favor to Keaton, who made a speech at Streep’s AFI ceremony in 2009.
Also in attendance were Woody Allen, Reese Witherspoon (in Miu Miu), Al Pacino, Emma Stone (in Loewe), Morgan Freeman, Sarah Silverman and Rachel McAdams (in Johanna Ortiz). Steve Martin and Martin Short opened the show with a musical tribute to Keaton.
