Meryl Streep is one patriotic lady!

The Oscar-winning actress wore Catherine Malandrino's American flag shirtdress to the 2016 Democratic National Convention Thursday night, a fitting selection given her political activities. Streep took the stage following Bill Clinton's speech in which he retold his love story with official democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, praising the could-be president for being the first woman to officially receive the nomination.

"Nearly 100 years after women got the vote, you people have made history," the It's Complicated star said during her speech. "And you're going to make history again in November because Hillary Clinton will be our first woman president, and she will be a great president. And she will be the first in a long line of women, and men, who serve with grit and grace. She'll be the first, but she won't be the last."

Streep's patriotic outfit—and spirit—made us remember that this iconic dress has been worn time and time again by celebrities—and not just for patriotic events such as conventions or the Fourth of July. Streep actually wore the dress before while promoting her 2008 movie Doubt, but Katy Perry, Halle Berry, Wendy Williams and more have been spotted wearing the frock.

Each celebrity put her own spin on the look, pairing different belts, shoes and wraps to make it stand out from the rest. Regardless of the different styles, this Malandrino creation remains timeless. Unfortunately, if you're looking to add it to your closet you're going to have to wait; the popular dress is completely sold out!
