As if we needed another reason to get excited for the Phoenix Art Museum's upcoming exhibition, "Hollywood Costume," a multimedia showcase direct from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London that features some of the most iconic costume designs in Western cinema, PAM has just announced that it's adding a very special guest to kick off the exhibition's opening festivities.

Glenn -- this isn't a drill, people -- Close.

The Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning actress who's been nominated for six Academy Awards will be attending Phoenix Art Museum's ninth annual pARTy, which coincides with a private opening gala for its "Hollywood Costume" exhibition.

The exclusive event will happen Saturday, March 22, giving guests the chance to explore the new exhibition before its public opening on Wednesday, March 26. The pARTy will also feature live, music, dinner, and dancing.

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.
