Glenn Close’s Oscars Dress Weighs 42 Pounds, And Is Covered in 4 Million Beads!
Why accessorize with bling when you can wear the bling? Clearly that’s Glenn Close’s motto.
The 71-year-old star of The Wife looked exactly like the famous Oscar statuette at this year’s Academy Awards, wearing a glittering gold Carolina Herrera gown.
The long-sleeved dress wraps into a tuxedo-like bodice and a long, sparkly cape — all made possible with a whopping 4 million beads, according to People magazine. But it comes at a price.
As the acting legend pointed out to Ryan Seacrest on the carpet, the gown weighs a hefty 42 pounds! In fact, Ryan had to call over her agent to help her down the stairs.
But that didn’t stop her from rocking out to Queen!
