    When Cesil was around (in jail, then out) I got the impression Cesil was from central Africa originally. I recall he and Jeff conversing in Yoruba (a language from that area), and I'm pretty sure that is a language Jeff's portrayer, Sam Adegoke (sp?) speaks (the likely reason they dropped those scenes in). I have no way of knowing for sure, but perhaps his RL heritage inspired the costuming, and as usual Dynasty took it to an occasionally absurd degree.

    Monica's wardrobe pushes the envelope regularly, but she seems to land just on the correct side of avant garde. I'm not a fashion expert, but I've yet to see her in anything onscreen that I'd call 'regretable'. That might be the actress's input, or it might just be her place as a recurring player rather than contract cast. The stuff she's wearing in that photo above, however...well, as Karen Walker might say, "Oh, honeyyyyy…" If not for the context (Jeff and his mother beside her) I would not have recognized Monica, and I hope this isn't a preview of things to come once her mommy is around.

    Thanks, very useful information. I don't think many full-blooded American Afro-Americans speak an African language.
    I don't mind the outfits (he could've dressed like King Shaka Zulu when he was about to marry Fallon, nothing wrong with going a little OTT) but it all seems so random and yet as a statement rather misplaced, or at least confusing.
    Just wish they'd use more details or hints as to why he feels partially African, after all, if anyone needs more characterization it's "Jeff Colby".

    But don't clothes make the man? Don't they actually tell you something about the kind of man (ostentatious and brash) that Jeff Colby is? In original Dynasty after season three Krystle was not defined by any actions or speeches but by the furs and gowns and jewelry. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

    I've already pointed out that my question wasn't about being ostentatious or brash.

    I hope the new Dominique won't be a bitch or a mess (don't they have enough of that already ?).
    We also need decent human beings on that show :D

    And please, give her a job, no matter if she controls her company using her laptop, but let the lady work, and not become like her brother, living for Dominique's Time.

    I remember Dominique and Alexis were enemies, but now, who is gonna be Dominique's nemesis? Fallexis?

    I'd love to see a new Sable around, portrayed by Melinda Clarke.

    Her daughter can't stand her, so she's probably gonna be a bitch.

    I think she looks FABULOUS in these photos! This casting could be brilliant. I just hope they write well for her (not sure I have much faith in that area).

    In the first photo: two or three cups, saucers, and plates---and two dozen wine glasses. We like her already. :popcorn:

    Oh I love those photos! Michael Michele looks great and I looooooove those Bantu knots on Monica. Im a drag queen and that’s a look I’ve been wanting to do as African fashions become more popular. I hope all this works out. I think Monica has absolutely blossomed after being a fairly bland character early on. They’ve also figured out a way to write Jeff that’s palatable. I hope Dominique fits and they can have some imoortance next year.

    They are going to hold off on any cat-fights until two key roles are cast:
    1. the actual replacement actress for Alexis
    2. Dominique's lapdog



    In the above scene, I have to say that Alexis' last line always kills me.
