Joan Collins At London Fashion Week

After returning from New York Fashion Week, I thought I reached my celebrity spotting quota for the year.

At the Caroline Charles show this morning during London Fashion Week I met THE celebrity.

Joan Collins.

Seriously I thought I was going to die.

She looks fabulous wearing a leopard print top with BOLD SHOULDERS. How apt considering the bold shoulder was very much inspired by her Alexis Carrington Colby character in Dynasty.

I didn’t know if I should curtsy, as I felt like I was in the presence of royalty.

Hard to believe she is 76 right?

    I wonder if the Leighton Meisters and Britneys of today will ever reach the heights of total glamour and wow-ness that Joan Collins has. I saw her once in a department store launching a book or something, and she didn’t look real.

      I also once saw Joan in a department store launching a book (Selfridges, in fact), and like you, I found it hard to get my head around the fact that that was really Joan Collins. JOAN COLLINS! She’s so famous you just can’t imagine her ever moving in the same circles as us mere mortals. I mean, she’s like the Queen or something!

      Of course, she looks fabulous. Our Joan would never be caught popping out to the shops in Uggs and tracky bottoms like today’s celebrities. She’s old-school glamour.

    I had no idea she was that age. She’s amazing.

    What’s not to love about Joan? Whether you liker her style or not, I don’t think you can question the fact that she always turns it out. Never anything less than glamourous and well groomed.

    p.s great legs for 76!

    p.p.s i love this site

    What amazes me about Joan Collins is that she doesn’t look like she’s had masses of cosmetic surgery. She still looks like herself. Just good genes I guess.

    The prop queen does it again, who cares if it’s all wigs, heavy make up and corsets, Joan always looks fantastic and a STAR, she is the mistress of illusion and long may she continue.
