    I believe it was, and was supposed to be. After all, when we first meet Alexis, we find out she's been living off an allowance (given to her by her own ex-husband, no less) for the part 16 years, and is living in a modest little art studio. When we first meet Sable (on THE COLBYS) she's preparing to host a fancy dinner to the governor of California - and has been doing such things for 28 years!

    Right from the start Sable was presented as a more important figure than Alexis. Plus she was closer related to the core part of the Colby family. So it figures she would have a better selection of gowns and jewelry. X)

    Mike, no Dominique never wore that gown on Dynasty. She did wear it while singing at her LA lounge on The Colbys.

    Ked, that is a good theory, but I tend to believe that Joan's complaint about the powers that be pumping all this money into The Colbys which only took away from Dynasty, might be valid here-- and Sable's more lavish wardrobe and jewelry collection is evidence of that. And the set designs were more expansive and better on The Colbys too. The Colby's coming into play was around the time Dynasty really went downhill.

    I wonder why more of Sable's amazing Colby's wardrobe didn't make it onto her Dynasty season. Season 9 in general was less glamorous-- which supposedly was intentional.

    What are some of your all time favorite costumes of Krystle, Alexis, Dominique, and Sable? Gowns, suits, or anything.

    One of my absolute favorites of Krystle is the one blue number she wears in Season 5's "The Crash." I mean DAMN she looked good in that.

    Was Alexis very first outfit, the black and white suit by Nolan Miller? Or was it just an off the rack thing? I always loved that whole outfit, even though Joan didn't wear it first. It's an iconic Alexis outfit for me.

    Krystle wore a red jersey long dress with sequin or beading on the trim. It was like a wrap dress I think. I just found a pic of it on your site... lol

    I all wise had a thought that that gown was bought,I do not know why.It has been said that in later seasons alot of the costumes were bought at high end stores.Nolan still designed alot of stuff,but he had alot of shows to do.I still do love that gown though.Interesting fact, Linda has said she would never wear green.

    Which is funny because some poster on YouTube is now doing videos of all the clothes worn by Linda on the show. They did the same thing for all of Alexis' 8 seasons. Now they have done 4 of Linda's seasons. She actually wears a whole lot of green. I am going to start a thread now with the videos in them.

    Mike, those Sable dresses are some of my favorites too. The green and the black lace over nude satin are my two favorites I think. Very beautiful. Alexis wore a similar dress to Sable's green dress, in season 9. Alexis' did not look as good... I'm not a fan of that one.

    Ked, yes that blue strapless Krystle dress was very beautiful. I had almost forgotten about that one! When I think of Krystle I think of the beaded gowns-- but that blue one was very nice. With that the high slit! ;-)

    Alexis, yes I think the original black and white suit Alexis wears in her first court room scene was a Nolan Miller. The double (original) who was scene at the end of season 1 cliffhanger just happened to be about the same size as Joan-- so the costume fit great. (So they said in interviews). And interesting fact... The suit isn't black and white. It is black and cream colored. The bright studio lights often make things brighter than they appear... Like the fur trimmed Dominique outfit looks almost white on film, especially the fur part-- it is actual gray. It is much darker in reality without the bright studio lights.

    Really? Her waist looks plenty trim to me, and she looks quite lovely overall. :D Course its all a matter of taste, really.

    Wow! With 12 votes total the winner is the pink beaded gown with rhinestones with 3 votes. There is a 4 way tie between the majority of the others! I wasn't expecting it to turn out with the votes being so close.

    While I agree the first, pink one is garish, it does fit Alexis' taste most closely.

    [​IMG]

    Whatever happened to that gorgeous brown thing that Linda wore in a 1983 LA charity fashion show with Joan? Linda never wore it on the show, I don't think, which is a shame given some of the crap daywear they had her in after a while.

    And didn't Linda wear that third, gold one somewhere??

    [​IMG]

    Ugh, is that Peter Holm clapping behind them?

    It made it's way onto your faux Krystle on Hollywood Wives.

    Edit - The girl in the pink dress is also a sort of faux Alexis. She played the young Joan Collins on Sins.

    It looks like the pink beaded gown is the winner!

    There are other Alexis gowns that I really like, but none are as "Alexis"' as this one I think... Beaded, sparkly, shoulder poofs, dramatic, etc...

    Alexis' red suit and wide brimmed hat.

    Alexis: Dex is mine- in the boardroom and the bedroom.
    Lady Ashley: Bought and paid for, Alexis?
    Alexis: I've never had to pay for it Ashley. Have you?...
