Joan Collins:

Good Genes or Good Docs?

9/5/2010 9:00 AM PDT BY Johnny Lopez

Alexis Carrington Colby aka Joan Collins is still one fierce diva.

Here's the 52-year-old "Dynasty" star back in 1985 (left) -- and 25 years later, the 77-year-old version at an event in London this year (right).

Getting old is not a bitch.

I worked for a dentist in 1985 who did her veneers on her teeth. She looked gorgeous then and was very nice to the staff. The dentist also did veneers on Rod Stewart, Zsa Zsa, and a lot of the Dynasty cast then.

Viva!    

Both good genes and good docs. You don't look like she does (at 77!) without both. Joan was an absolute fox in her 20s, still hot in her 40s and has retained her looks pushing 80.

She clearly took care of herself from the start, never baking her face in the sun (Liz Taylor), never being a drunk or addict (take a bow Liz Taylor!), never getting fat (bravo Liz Taylor!) and having a generally happy attitude towards life. She's eaten well, exercised, taken her vitamins and seen her doctors right from the start, she never messed around with her health.

It's certainly no secret that she's had plastic surgery, right before the last season of Dynasty (great show by the way) she seemed to have had a facelift and eye job, but the work was really natural and she looked good, not fake or unnaturally young.

I love Joan Collins, she should be on TV again, a great actress and a fun lady.

@22 Simon says
She wasn't "being scolded" for wearing a hairpiece.
It was just an observation much like You mentioning it.
Most people don't realize that She's worn wigs for decades and has very thin hair like many other women.

She actually looks better now. I think she's had a face lift (the old fashioned plastic surgery) but I think she is smart for not getting lip fillers, injections to plump up her lips and a lot of other lube jobs in her face. She actually looks natural and pretty.

She looks like Tim Curry in the Rocky Horror Picture Show in the first pic.

@26 Robin.
It's funny You should say that because drag queens don't fully understand women ,but typically will take a few traits that appeal to them and amplify them which is what Joan Collins did with the Alexis character.
That is one reason why women such as Joan Crawford ,Bette Davis etc ring with some 'gay' men who have identity disorders.

I actually served her when buyin her necklace for the Oscars this year and the second photo seems to be slightly photo shopped! What I will say is she looked amazing, she looked exactly like herself but older with wrinkles in all the right places and a very natural look up close! A legend who looks as good now as she did 50 years ago! Am going for good genes!
