Six-time Academy Award® nominee, actress and producer Glenn Close, will be the guest of honor for the ninth annual pARTy hosted at Phoenix Art Museum on March 22. The gala will celebrate the opening and final scheduled stop of the international Hollywood Costume exhibit and attendees will have an exclusive opportunity to experience the show before it opens to the public on March 26.

A world-class exhibition that originated at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Hollywood Costume showcases more than 100 iconic Hollywood costumes throughout a century of cinema, many of which have never been publicly displayed or seen beyond the secure walls of studio archives. As part of the exhibit, two costumes worn by Close will be on view – the gray and black houndstooth skirt and jacket worn by Cruella de Vil in “102 Dalmatians” and the 18th century inspired gown of Marquise Isabelle de Merteuil from “Dangerous Liaisons.”

In addition to costumes from Hollywood film characters, there will also be two gowns worn by Close on display as part of a second exhibit, Hollywood Red Carpet. The Giorgio Armani silk gown worn as the nominee for Best Actress Award for “Fatal Attraction” (1988), and the dark green Zac Posen gown and jacket worn as a nominee for Best Actress in the film, “Albert Nobbs” (2011).

Attendees of the pARTy will enjoy a first-class event where every detail is meticulously planned. From world-renown ‘get on the floor and dance’ band ensembles, to contemporary cuisine that will engage one’s culinary senses; the pARTy is truly an experience that should not be missed.
