How Glenn Close Evolved From Demure Ingenue to Red Carpet Style Icon

Glenn Close has always had the range when it comes to delivering impressive performances both on stage and on screen, but she's also demonstrated over the decades that her range extends to her red carpet style, as well. In the early 1980s, she burst onto the scene and won her first Tony Award. The following decade, her 101 Dalmatians character, Cruella de Vil, a chic villain with a dastardly penchant for stealing puppy fur became almost synonymous with the actress. (The real Close, on the other hand, would never do such a thing—her love for her dog Pip, who has accompanied her on red carpets during awards season, is as heartwarming as it is hilarious.) In the 2000s and 2010s, Close was not only firmly positioned in Hollywood as an acclaimed actress, but as a performer inching forward with taking some fashion risks on the red carpet, donning brightly colored suits and sharply tailored capes. In honor of her 72nd birthday, take a peek at Close's style evolution, from demure Hollywood newcomer to legendary fixture of the silver screen.
