About Taste of Streep

Start with a Brooklyn acting student, mix in some pics of food, then stir in a dash of Meryl Streep and—voila—you get @tasteofstreep, the Instagram account that’s been satiating its 170K+ followers ever since March 2016, when Samantha Raye decided—and doesn’t remember why—to superimpose a picture of the actress on a pink donut. “The response I received was overwhelming,” Samantha mentioned in a feature for InStyle. Now with hundreds of images matching Meryl’s outfits to similar-looking foods (like raw steak, pink lemonade, and churros), the posts take two great things and make them better, together.
