There is an old adage that high tide raises all ships. If that’s true, it stands to reason that a high degree of talent would raise the collective talent of all on a project. Enter Meryl Streep, pure talent, and two ladies, talented in their own right, who’ve had the opportunity to work with her…

With a career spanning more than four decades, Meryl Streep recently starred in the critically-acclaimed film August: Osage County as matriarch Violet Weston, an overbearing mother with a mean streak to three daughters. For her role she received a Golden Globe nomination and an Academy Award nomination. The three-time Oscar-winning actress has been nominated for an Academy Award 18 times and age 64 shows no signs of slowing down. Here she is looking hip in the G-Star Raw GS610S sunglasses from Marchon. The 86th Academy Awards are Sunday, March 2 on ABC…


Julia Roberts, of course, an Oscar winner herself thanks to Erin Brockovich, stars with Streep in August: Osage County as Barbara Weston-Fordham, Violet’s oldest daughter who has unfortunately inherited her mother's mean streak. Roberts has been nominated for a slew of awards for her work in the film and will find out the fate of her Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress nomination on March 2. Until then the 46 year-old beauty looks stunning in these tortoiseshell Ray-Ban Meteor sunglasses from Luxottica… 


Julianne Moore starred with Streep in 2002’s The Hours. The film earned them both several nominations and though neither won the Oscar, they’ve obviously both done pretty well for themselves before and since. Moore has the added benefit of seamlessly transitioning from indie film to major blockbuster. She can currently be seen on the big screen in the action/thriller Non-Stop with Liam Neeson, and shortly in the satirical drama Maps to the Stars, about the entertainment industry’s relationship with western civilization as a whole. There must be something about redheads and tortoiseshell because here is the 53-year old Moore in the tort Tom Ford Cary sunglasses from Marcolin
