    Here are some of Linda's Nolan Miller gowns that were never worn on the show. Some of these were specifically designed for "Krystle" but for some reason or another never ended up in the episodes. Ironically enough, I think these are some of her most beautiful gowns. All of these were worn for promo shots or to awards shows. (One picture is of Donna Mills... I don't have a color picture handy of Linda wearing this gown.)

    Gorgeous. Why the hell weren't these on the show? I mean seriously... Sigh, I just get so tired of the showrunner's incompetency sometimes...

    I think the nude gown is what Caress wears in the opening credits. Frankie wore it also on The Colbys.

    I think the cream colored gown with silk floral appliques is one of her most beautiful gowns. It was specifically made for Linda to wear on Dynasty, but she never wore it. She did wear it for promo shots for the show though.

    Yes, the nude beaded gown was worn by Caress in credits and by Frankie on The Colbys (and by Ann Margret to an event.) I think there were promo shots of Blake and Krystle by the fireplace and Krystle is wearing this gown-- so Mike, you aren't going crazy! Hehe. Was not filmed for the show, but the scene you describe was shot for promo shots.

    I have a friend who owns the turquoise beaded gown. I think Linda has the full white beaded gown and the blue floral beaded gown. Ive never seen any trace of the others...

    The nude beaded gown and the one Donna Mills is wearing are two seriously stunning gowns. I love them!

    Thank you Mike! Even though it is quite beautiful, I'm really only interested in the gowns and costumes by Nolan that were worn on the show. The cream beaded gown with the satin floral appliques is one of my all time favorites, but I would probably want it a little less than a Dynasty worn Krystle gown, just for that reason. Screen worn is more important in the collecting world. Screen worn and beautiful is the perfect combo! Even better if from an important scene.

    I agree Alexis. Too bad they were never worn by Krystle on the show...

    My friend with the teal gown has several other Nolan Miller/Dynasty related costumes. I had the chance to buy this nude beaded with rhinestones Krystle gown for a swap (on Dynasty it had a V-neckline, not a high neckline which was added later), but instead opted to sell a piece in order to gain the money to buy the black beaded paisley Alexis gown...

    The high neckline ruins the dress and makes it look matronly. Otherwise it would be a stunning gown with that bead work. And so Krystle!

    Alexis, I totally agree. If I owned that gown I would want to have the new neckline removed. I assume it's just a new piece of fabric sewn onto the neckline.

    I don't know...to me it looks "country & western"-inspired. I could imagine this being Monica Colby's dress.

    I didn't realise that the white velvet Dominique gown had such a long train/sash.

    Alexis, I was surprised too! There is literally as much material in the train as there is in the dress-- if not more!

    Which do you think is a better piece? Alexis red suit and hat? Or Krystle periwinkle negligee set?
