“Joan Does Glamour” Tonight On ITV1

You may remember I saw Joan Collins at London Fashion Week and was stunned by how amazing beautiful and glamorous she is in real life.

Note I said stunned, not at all surprised.

I’m always shy to meet celebrities at Fashion Week, so I couldn’t even bring myself to speak to Joan in fear I would have been a incoherent shivering mess.

Not a good look.

Today at 9pm on ITV1 in the UK, we will get to see the the actress, style icon – this term can finally be used correctly – and Hollywood legend in action as she fronts her own TV show ‘Joan Does Glamour’.

She will meet three generations of the same family and attempt to convert them to her brand of elegance and style.

I have set my V+ as I daren’t miss what will undoubtedly be a master class in style, elegance and red carpet dressing.

In her promo for her program she said “I want to bring glamour back to Britain.” And I thank her for that.

I think I should send a copy those who are lacking in that department – Bai Ling, Phoebe Price immediately spring to mind.

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?

Pictures taken by me.
