It's safe to say Meryl Streep is pretty happy with her final Oscars dress choice.

The 67-year-old actress shined on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday, sporting a custom midnight blue, satin off-the-shoulder Elie Saab gown over matching trousers and heels.

The legendary actress’ Oscars dress this year has turned into quite the drama. On Saturday, Streep slammed Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld's apology, after Lagerfeld claimed to WWD that she turned down a Chanel dress for the Oscars, because she found another designer to pay her to wear their dress instead. After Streep denied it, Lagerfeld called the situation a "misunderstanding," and said he regretted the "controversy."

However, Streep definitely wasn't having it.

"Karl Lagerfeld, a prominent designer, defamed me, my stylist, and the illustrious designer whose dress I chose to wear, in an important industry publication," Streep said in a statement obtained by ET. "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. I do not take this lightly, and Mr. Lagerfeld's generic 'statement' of regret for this 'controversy' was not an apology."

"He lied, they printed the lie, and I am still waiting," she added.
