Tickets for this high-class affair are $750 per person, with tables starting at $7,500. And though not everyone will be able to pay their way to a meet-and-greet with Glenn Close, they will be able to see some of her most memorable cinematic ensembles -- including one of her Cruella de Vil costumes from 102 Dalmatians and the 18th century-inspired gown she wore as Marquise Isabelle de Merteuil in Dangerous Liaisons.
Coinciding with "Hollywood Costume," which will be one view March 26 through July 6, Phoenix Art Museum's Ellman Fashion Design Gallery will also be hosting "Hollywood Red Carpet," an exhibition showcasing red carpet fashion including two more gowns worn by Close and running March 26 through July 27.
