Meryl Streep has a mod moment in a sheer disc dress as she delights at the Don’t Look Up world premiere in New York City


Meryl Streep brought a sense of fun to the world premiere of Adam McKay’s highly anticipated disaster comedy Don’t Look Up on Sunday evening. 

The inimitable 72-year-old actress had a monochromatic mod moment as she walked the red carpet at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City. 

While posing with the principal cast of the upcoming film, she flashed her megawatt smile as she shared a laugh with Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill.

 The 21-time Oscar nominated actress opted for a sixties inspired look as she modeled a sheer black disc dress with high slits up the sides. 

Always a class act, she layered the glimmering garment over a black turtleneck mini dress with a pair of sheer tights. 

The Sophie’s Choice star pulled the look together with simple platform heels and carried a square black clutch bag. 

And for a bit more personality she rocked cateye glasses, and accessorized with oval shaped dangling earrings and a black bangle.

Don’t Look Up is centered around two low-level astronomers Dr. Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) and Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence) who must go on a giant media tour to warn mankind of an approaching comet that will destroy planet Earth. 

In the sci-fi disaster comedy, Streep plays the President of the United States, Janie Orlean, whose character is described as a self-centered woman who cares more about her image than running the country. 

Jonah Hill plays both her son and her White House Chief Of Staff, and the movie includes a stacked cast including: Cate Blanchett, Kid Cudi, Tyler Perry, Ariana Grande, Timothee Chalamet, Chris Evans and Matthew Perry. 

In an joint interview with DiCaprio on CBS Sunday Morning, Streep shared that she chose to take on the project because of the film’s writer-director Adam McKay (whose extensive resume includes Anchorman and The Big Short).

Tight knit: Though the sci-fi disaster comedy does center on pertinent topics such as climate change, the media and the state of politics in general, it leads with humor

‘I’m a huge fan,’ Streep said. ‘Nobody makes me laugh harder in his movies, and nobody makes me think more,’ she told host Tracy Smith. 

And McKay also confessed he wanted the Devil Wears Prada star for the role of madame President but was shocked she actually said yes.  

‘For instance, with the president, President Orlean, of course you think Meryl Streep. And you just assume she’s gonna say no and you’ll move on,’ he recalled — adding that when DiCaprio also signed on to the project he found his casting luck ‘crazy.’    

Don’t Look Up is set for a limited theatrical release on December 10 and will be released on Netflix on December 24.
