• Costume designer Ann Roth dishes on Meryl Streep as the late chef in next year’s comedy Julie & Julia

THE RESEMBLANCE IS AMAZING. HOW DID YOU DO IT? We looked at hundreds of old photos and movies of Julia and based our designs off those. Meryl and I had long talks about the clothes and about making her look taller.

WAS ACCENT-MASTER MERYL ABLE TO PULL OFF JULIA’S? Meryl has her warm and encouraging voice. Her delivery of the high range tone is spot-on. And she nails that Julia Child characteristic stance, with one hand on her hip. It’s uncanny!
