The Beautiful Joan Collins

“Yes, I know fashions change and everyone attempts to look up-to-date but the movie-star styles of the Twenties, Thirties, Forties and Fifties changed radically. What didn’t change, however, was their individual style; they were all one-offs.”

–Joan Collins, quoted in the U.K.’s Daily Mail, on the lack of individual style in Hollywood today.

Did you know Miss Collins made her London stage debut at age 9 in A Doll’s House and became a student at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art at age 16?

Born in 1933, this enduring glitterball–and clearly smart cookie–was a much buzzed-about beauty in her native Britain before coming to Hollywood in the 1950’s, well before her fur and diamond-studded role as Alexis Carrington in Dynasty.
