As one of the greatest actresses of all time (yep, we said it), Meryl Streep is a magical on-screen chameleon, transforming into characters as different as Miranda Priestly and Julia Childs with utter effortlessness.
But there is some behind-the-scenes effort involved... on the part of the costume designers, at least.

And Meryl owned every single look.
