The Oscar dress row between Meryl Streep and Chanel designer Karl Lagerfield does not seems to be ending quickly as the actress hits out at the designer for defaming her. The 67-year-old slammed Lagerfield after the designer falsely accused her of being paid to wear a gown on the Oscars red carpet, reports The Telegraph. \u201cIn reference to Mr. Lagerfeld\u2019s \u2018statement,\u2019 there is no \u2018controversy\u2019: Karl Lagerfeld, a prominent designer, defamed me, my stylist and the illustrious designer whose dress I chose to wear, in an important industry publication,\u201d she said. \u00a0 \u201cThat publication printed this defamation, unchecked. Subsequently, the story was picked up globally, and continues, globally, to overwhelm my appearance at the Oscars, on the occasion of my record-breaking 20th nomination, and to eclipse this honor in the eyes of the media, my colleagues and the audience.

He lied, they printed the lie, and I am still waiting,\u201d she added. \u00a0 This comes after Lagerfeld wrongly claimed Streep changed her mind about wearing a Chanel gown to the awards because she wanted to get paid by wearing a creation from a different designer. \u00a0 But later he apologized to the actress saying he misunderstood Streep and regretted the controversy. \u00a0 The \u2018Into the Woods\u2019 star is nominated for best actress for \u2018Florence Foster Jenkins\u2019 and will battle it out against Emma Stone (La La Land), Ruth Negga (Loving), Natalie Portman (Jackie) and Isabelle Ruppert (Elle).
