American Julia Child, played by Meryl Streep, is widely recognised for introducing mainstream America to French cooking and the film follows her time in the 1940's and 1950's when she lived in Paris, France, with her diplomat husband, Paul.

Texan Julie Powell, played by Amy Adams, famously attempted a culinary challenge, the 'Julie/Julia Project', to cook all 524 recipes in Julia Child's 'Mastering the Art of French Cooking'. Her efforts in the kitchen became a popular web blog and were later published as a book.

If you like these outfits, you may also like some other movie costumes worn by Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia: The Movie and the costumes worn in the film Doubt, which also starred both actresses.


  1. Who designed or what label is Julie's final white dress?

  2. I'm sorry I don't know, can anyone help with this?

  3. Those costumes are beautiful. I loved the movie Julie and Julia. Does anyone else agree with me that Meryl Streep's waist is so tiny? She is such a beautiful woman. She is my favorite actress and icon as well. I look up to her.

  4. Who made the white dress??? I LOVE it!

  5. I've spent the past 2 hours searching the internet for this white dress and who made it. I would like to wear it as my wedding dress. This is as close as I came to trying to find the designer... and no one knows...=(

  6. Well I know that the film's costume designer was Ann Roth and the studio was Columbia Pictures (part of Sony Pictures), so maybe their press Office could help?

    Alternatively have you tried posting a question on the facebook fan page for the other fans to help?
