Glenn Close, the leading US actor whose films include Les Liaisons Dangereuses and Fatal Attraction, in which she played the bunny-boiler, co-starring with Michael Douglas, is returning to the UK to reprise her role as faded film star Norma Desmond in Sunset Boulevard.
Close, who celebrated her 69th birthday earlier this month, will open in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical version of the 1950 film, on April 1st.
Never a very girly girl (she once dressed for the Oscars Red Carpet in black trousers and a Gap shirt) Close these days sports a very edgy short haircut, which SoSensational loves, and believes is most flattering to her when it features a fringe or a sweep of hair to soften that dramatic high forehead.
Steal her style by being authentic and sticking to the look which works for both your body type and personality. Glenn Close clearly doesn’t do “pretty” or frilly. That rather mannish white trouser suit looks terrific on her and works for evenings or parties with the jewelled clutch and chandelier earrings. Best of all, for those of us who live outside the celebrity bubble, a tailored trouser suit would look equally stylish and grown up if worn for less formal occasions, teamed for the upcoming S/S16 season with white plimsolls and an oversized tote!
The Hollywood actress, who has four films awaiting release, adopted a similarly pared-down look, in black with just a flash of white, for a recent appearance on US TV. For this event, she rocked black trousers with a long-sleeve black top worn over a white shirt. She cleverly countered the starkness and slight masculinity of this combo with a pair of high stilettos. Hers were in red-and-black but fuchsia or emerald or orange or metallic would also have worked. Again, a pair of sparkly earrings draw attention to the face, which has been carefully made up to emphasise her eyes, using black and navy-blue eye-shadows (but any muted colour would work, too). A slick of nude lippy combined with a low-key blush colour look elegant and don’t move the emphasis from the eyes.
What do you think of Glenn Close’s look? Is it too mannish for you?
