Oscars 2019: Glenn Close Shimmers In Golden Caped Gown With 4 Million Beads [PHOTOS]
Glenn Close may have lost the Oscar last night, but she definitely won style points for her look. Donned in a floor-length golden gown that draped into a cape with a long train at the end, Close had all eyes on her as she walked the red carpet at the 91st annual Academy Awards.
In a red carpet interview with Billy Porter, Close revealed that the dress was designed by Wes Gordon at Carolina Herara and contained around four million golden beads, weighing in at a whopping 42 pounds. The sparkle definitely made her stand out amidst a sea of well-dressed A-listers who walked the red carpet beside her.
Going in to last night’s award ceremony, Close was considered the favorite to take home the prize for Best Actress, having won top honors at the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards. In a surprising upset, Olivia Colman took home the Oscar for her role in The Favourite, making Close the most-nominated living actress to have never won, having now been nominated seven times.
But in her ever-classy manner, Close didn’t seem to care. When Colman apologized to her “idol” Close for beating her out, Close laughed off the joke and gave her fellow actress an encouraging wave. Watch Close’s heartwarming reaction (again, in that sparkling dress) to Coleman’s speech here:
