PROMO UPDATE : KURT GEIGER CAMPAIGN Q&A WITH DAME JOAN COLLINS .. JULY 28TH 2018 ..



            Q+A With Joan Collins

1. YOUR STYLE IS ICONIC AND VERY DISTINCTIVE - AND SEEMS VERY MUCH PART OF YOUR CHARACTER. HOW WOULD YOU CHARACTERISE YOUR STYLE?
TIMELESS AND ECLECTIC. I’M EQUALLY AT HOME IN A PANTSUIT AND T-SHIRT AS I AM IN A BALLGOWN. I DON’T WANT TO LOOK LIKE ANYONE ELSE, AND I DON’T FOLLOW “TRENDY” FASHION OR OUTFITS THAT ARE GEARED TOWARDS THE VERY YOUNG. I DESIGN MANY OF MY OWN DRESSES AND COSTUMES AND ENJOY CHOOSING THE FABRICS MYSELF.
2. HOW DO YOU USE FASHION TO EXPRESS YOURSELF?
I CHOOSE WHAT I WEAR EACH DAY DEPENDING ON A) THE WEATHER AND B) WHAT MY PLANS ARE FOR THE DAY. IT MAY BE PANTS (TROUSERS) AND A CASHMERE SWEATER IF IT’S COLD AND I’M STAYING IN OR AN ELEGANT SUIT IF I HAVE A BUSINESS MEETING OR GOING TO LUNCH.

3. WHEN DID YOU FEEL CONFIDENT IN YOUR OWN STYLE?
I STARTED TO FEEL CONFIDENT IN MY TEENS, WHEN I ESCHEWED PRETTY LITTLE FROCKS WHICH WERE THE STYLE OF THE TIME. I CHOSE TO WEAR BLACK POLO NECK SWEATERS AND TIGHT MATCHING TROUSERS OR A FULL SKIRT WITH A WIDE BELT TO EMPHASIZE MY (THEN) VERY SMALL WAIST, WITH MASSIVE GOLD GYPSY EARRINGS. TRES JULIET GRECO.


4. YOU HAVE AN EXPERT EYE FOR DETAILS – WHAT DETAILS DO YOU LOOK FOR WHEN YOU ARE CHOOSING SHOES AND ACCESSORIES?
I LOOK FOR GREAT WORKMANSHIP, ELEGANCE AND WEARABILITY, AND SHOES AND BAGS THAT ARE VERSATILE.

5. WHERE WOULD YOU WEAR THE SHOES AND BAG FROM THE CAMPAIGN?
WITH MONOCHROMATIC DRESSES OR SUITS. THEY ARE THE DEFINITION OF THE VERSATILITY I LOOK FOR - I COULD WEAR THEM TO THE WOLSELEY AT LUNCH AS WELL AS THE CHILTERN FIREHOUSE AT DINNER.

6. ARE THERE ANY RISING STARS WHOSE STYLE YOU ADMIRE?
I THINK CATE BLANCHETT HAS ENORMOUS STYLE, ALTHOUGH YOU COULD HARDLY CALL HER A “RISING STAR”!.
7. WE CAN’T NOT MENTION YOUR ROLE AS ALEXIS IN DYNASTY! DO YOU HAVE A FAVOURITE OUTFIT FROM THE SHOW?
THERE ARE SO MANY OUTFITS I LOVED BUT THE GREY SILK JERSEY WRAP DRESS WORN WITH A FUR CAPE TRIMMED WITH GREY FOX AND A MATCHING HAT AND BOOTS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES. HOWEVER TODAY THAT WOULD BE TOO OVER THE TOP TO WEAR. WHAT I ENJOYED MOST, HOWEVER, WAS COLLABORATING ON EVERY SINGLE OUTFIT WITH THE TALENTED DESIGNER NOLAN MILLER – WE HAD A WONDERFUL TIME AND IT FELT LESS LIKE WORK AND MORE LIKE PLAY.

8. WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE TO PLAY YOU IN A MOVIE ABOUT YOU?
SHE HASN’T BEEN BORN YET!
