Glenn Close sparkles in a 42-pound gold gown at the 2019 Oscars
It could be Glenn Close‘s year to win an Oscar — and she dressed up to match the statue in advance.
The “Wife” actress, 71, graced the red carpet wearing a gold gown by Carolina Herrera that made her look like a real-life Oscar. The show-stopping look including a cape with train, long sleeves and pockets. She finished the outfit with gold and diamond earrings and a matching clutch.
When asked about the stunning outfit, Close revealed that it’s extremely heavy — 42 pounds, to be exact. It features more than three million glass beads and was assembled in New York and Mumbai, India, with the help of more than 40 craftsmen, according to Entertainment Tonight.
Close is nominated for Best Actress alongside Lady Gaga, Melissa McCarthy, Olivia Colman and Yalitza Aparicio. This is her first Academy Award nomination.
