Margaret Thatcher’s (Meryl Streep) blue suit from Phyllida Lloyd’s 2011 period drama The Iron Lady.
The film tells the story of an elderly Thatcher as she remembers moments from her life, from her childhood through to her leadership of the United Kingdom.
Thatcher wore her blue suit when she delivered her “Proud To Be British” speech before the House of Commons in the wake of the Falklands War. The suit is comprised of a single-breasted Jane Law jacket and skirt, both of which are made of thick wool material in ultramarine blue and labelled ‘Meryl Streep’. The jacket features shoulder pads, two small waist pockets and three blue buttons along the front. The A-line skirt features a pleated front and a zip and clasp on the rear. Made specifically for Streep in her Oscar®-winning role of Thatcher, the suit has no sizes marked. The costume remains in very good condition.
