Glenn Close In Zac Posen – 2012 Oscars

Glenn Close gave many young starlets a run for their money on the red carpet at the 2012 Oscars, held in LA this evening.

She wore a Zac Posen Fall 2012 gown which was recently presented during New York Fashion Week.

Her forest green strapless gown with floral embroidered details was teamed with a matching blazer with wide satin lapels.

In the battle of the over 60s, Glenn wins over Meryl.

Do you agree?

A Judith Leiber clutch and Bulgari jewels completed her look.

    Perfect! She’s one of the best dressed of this year’s Oscars for me!

    She looks fantastic. The colour, the fit, that great jacket, the hair. One of my favourites.

    Pure class!

    Stunning and elegant!

  5. MsDivaMom February 27, 2012 at 16:37 #

    She is gorgeous. She is working it, ya hear me?!! Working it out and at her age?…baby bye!!

    I loved this on her. I thought it was sexy and classy. For those hating the blazer, women of a certain age and even women who are a bit plump really prefer to cover their arms and I thought the blazer was a great way of acheiving this. Glenn is still a gorgeous sexy woman and she rocked this look.

    Call me crazy, but she was one of my favourites of the night!

  8. Carolina Roq February 27, 2012 at 14:08 #

    Very beautiful hue of green

  9. D February 27, 2012 at 09:05 #

    great loook!! xx

    I love this dress, and think it’s not only a stunning fit, but love how it’s a bit of a nod to the character she’s nominated for.

    one of the top dresses tonight

  12. Aline February 27, 2012 at 06:30 #

    She looks so fierce! I love it!

  13. rebecca o February 27, 2012 at 06:23 #

    She looks fabulous! Definitely one of the night’s beat dressed.

  14. Katharine February 27, 2012 at 05:37 #

    Glenn looks sensational : this must be one of her best ever appearances on a red carpet (admit my expectations were low, happy to be wrong).

  15. noo February 27, 2012 at 04:04 #

    i love this dress on glenn, the addition of the jacket is great and she just is working it 😀

    The next time any of the older actresses ever feel that their age is an impediment to them experimenting and looking all va-va-voom on the red carpet, they need to look at this photo of Glenn, and then bring the glamour.

    Now I kind of want to see a female-bonding movie about three sexy, feisty, fierce older women starring her, Helen Mirren and Susan Sarandon.

    • Aline February 27, 2012 at 06:29 #

      OMG YES!!! To everything!

  17. DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) February 27, 2012 at 02:55 #

    I love the dress. It didn’t read green on TV. I know she prefers to cover her arms. I think the blazer was too much of a good thing.

    • bm February 27, 2012 at 03:30 #

      I prefer Meryl, the blazer kinda ruined this look.

  18. Carolyn February 27, 2012 at 02:32 #

    Glenn looks fantastic and I love that she added the blazer to the dress. However, I think she and Meryl have such different styles that it isn’t fair to compare the two. Glenn is all hot and sexy and Meryl is bohemian and funky…totally different!

  19. cedric February 27, 2012 at 02:24 #

    it’s was be better if she dnt wear a blazer

  20. Carolina February 27, 2012 at 02:22 #

    I love how pleased with herself she looks :). On someone else, her demeanor would be overmuch, but on Close, I’ll buy it. It’s just that her humor and class shine right through -and look at her sexy stance! Rock on.

  21. CTgirl February 27, 2012 at 02:10 #

    This look is perfect for her in every way. The color, cut, jacket, everything. Spectacular!

  22. Sabina February 27, 2012 at 02:07 #

    Definitely beats Meryl, I also love the addition of the blazer!

    • EmmaWoodhouse February 27, 2012 at 02:27 #

      WOW! She looks fabulous and so regal. Wonderful choice to add the blazer–in my opinion this is the best she has ever looked! Meryl who? (haha)

  23. pipsqueak February 27, 2012 at 02:07 #

    I’m not sure. The ensemble looked a bit too much on TV. Glenn is also a tad too short to pull it off nice. The jacket and the gown didn’t go together well. Her jacket is like Jennifer Hudson’s shrug – redundant – the year Jennifer won for Dream Girls. I think Meryl looked slightly better in comparison.

  24. Ally February 27, 2012 at 02:06 #

    Perfect! Have no more to say!

  25. Ben February 27, 2012 at 02:05 #

    No, I do not agree. Meryl knocked it out of the park.

    Love lvoe love. The fabric is not my favourite, at all, but she really makes this look. She isn’t very tall, but she is so utterly statuesque, which is what ruined Rooney’s look for me.
    It’s so unexpected, but so in tune with her style, and what’s more is jus thwo she looks. Her pose and just general demeanor is delicious. It is diva, ut subtle. Fabulous, definiteily one fo my favourites of the night.

  27. Carmen February 27, 2012 at 02:04 #

    I love her, one of my favorites of the night. I like very much the blazer with the dress.

  28. MG February 27, 2012 at 01:59 #

    she looks amazing!!

  29. Raquel February 27, 2012 at 01:59 #

    LOVE. LOOOOVE. I hope she wins.

  30. Jones19 February 27, 2012 at 01:58 #

    If she hadn’t worn the blazer she would have been amazing. Meryl wins for me.

    • Tiffany Nicole February 27, 2012 at 15:12 #

      Exactly. With the blazer it’s just too overworked and too much going on.

  31. Leti February 27, 2012 at 01:58 #

    She looks amazing! I love that she’s showing off her figure and wearing a color. Not only does she win the battle of the over sixties, but she’s one of my favorites of the night.

  32. CreoleLady February 27, 2012 at 01:58 #

    Wow, I’m impressed with both actress and designer. I can tell she feels great and it shows.

  33. Kerry February 27, 2012 at 01:57 #


  34. robbie February 27, 2012 at 01:57 #

    glenn all the way spectacular.

  35. Shaina February 27, 2012 at 01:54 #

    She definitely wins for me. Love the matching blazer and her body is amazing for a woman over 60.

  36. Ramsay February 27, 2012 at 01:53 #

    Zac Posen keeps doing the same dress over and over again – it’s just boring…

  37. Hermione Weasley February 27, 2012 at 01:51 #

    She’s one of my absolute favorite. Absolutley HBIC material. Awesome!
