JOAN COLLINS at AGE 79!
She Just Keeps Getting Better! Joan Collins, 79, Dazzles in Sequined Biker Jacket
at Pre-Grammy Shindig
10 February 2013
She outshone women half her age at the star-studded gala. As Alexis Carrington in the 1980s soap opera Dynasty, Joan Collins was known for her chic outfits and blood-red talons. And it seems some things never change, as she proved on the red carpet at Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy party in Beverly Hills on Saturday.
Still got it! Joan Collins looked spectacular in sequins at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy bash at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Saturday. Posing like the professional that she is, the veteran actress wowed in a shimmering, slinky black floor length gown.
Adding sparkle to match her vivacious personality, the mother-of-three sported a fashionable black sequinned biker jacket, left open to show off her enviable figure.
Her glossy hair, perfectly coiffured as always, framed a face that belied her 79 years .
Although she has admitted to trying Botox, the Dynasty star famously declared that sex was better than Botox for staving off the aging process, but clearly a dash of vermillion lipstick helps too.
Adding to the glitz, Joan accessorized with a sparkling diamond bracelet, as well a necklace, dangly earrings and a large shell-shaped ring.
A black Fendi bag slung over one shoulder completed the picture.
Dynasty comeback? With Dallas a success again, Joan is up for bringing Alexis back
On her fifth marriage, Joan appeared at the event, which was held in honour of X Factor judge and record producer L.A. Reid, without her husband Percy Gibson, who is 32 years her junior.
She tweeted on Friday: ‘It’s freezing in Hollywood!’ but the cold weather isn’t dictating her style.
She was photographed enjoying a night out in Hollywood in January, wearing an equally glamourous outfit, but sporting a shorter hemline.
Earlier in 2013, Miss Collins tweeted a series of slimming tips, ranging from tongue-in-cheek to downright ridiculous.
Queen of the red carpet: Joan loved being the centre of attention
The advice, which she began sharing on January 8, included eating nothing but eggs one day a week, brushing your teeth with peppermint toothpaste to quash hunger pangs and drinking tequila instead of wine.
Collins recently admitted that she wants to sign up for the newly revamped Dallas.
She told the Daily Star that she would love for her scheming alter-ego Alexis Carrington to turn up in the show to cause trouble for the Southfork residents.
'I think it's a brilliant idea. It's a great idea. I love it,' Collins said.
Dallas returned to the small screen recently after a 23-year absence, but it was dealt a huge blow when Larry Hagman –– who was known for portraying evil oil baron JR Ewing –– died in November.
