Time to rejoice Dynasty fans, 80s nerds, shoulder pad fetishists, gay men, and fashionistas everywhere...
Joan Collins has returned!
The erstwhile Alexis Carrington Colby Whatever (weren't there like 8 husbands) is the new face of Alexis Bittar jewelry.
New York designer Bittar makes gorgeous big clunky colourful upscale fashion jewelry - and when we say 'fashion' as opposed to 'fine' jewelry, we mean fabulous pieces in lucite, enamel, turquoise, crystals, etc, as opposed to pricey gems - which is very 80s inspired and perfect for the eternal diva.
According to the press release, which you know must be the gospel truth, Collins was quoted in the media as saying she loves the jewelry, and then got a call from the designer himself, and poof, an advertising campaign was born.

Me, I'm waiting for the Krystle Carrington collection....
