A representative tells THR the claim is absolutely false.

On Thursday, WWD reported that Meryl Streep turned down a custom couture Chanel creation after the fashion house refused to pay her to wear it.

Bridget Foley reports that Streep, who is up for a best actress Oscar on Sunday, her 20th nomination, had her eye on an embroidered gray silk number from Lagerfeld's most recent couture collection, and asked for the neckline to be customized. She writes that the fashion house had begun production on the dress when a call came through in which Streep's camp reportedly said, according to Lagerfeld, “'Don’t continue the dress. We found somebody who will pay us.'”

Streep's team, however, absolutely refutes that claim.

A representative for the actress tells The Hollywood Reporter that the statement is absolutely false, and that it is against her personal ethics to be paid to wear a gown on the red carpet. Chanel did not immediately return THR's request for comment.

Now you know.
