My Collection: Red beaded Alexis gown

This gown was worn by Joan Collins as Alexis Carrington Colby on "Dynasty."

Joan wore this gown in episode 98 of season 5 "That Holiday Spirit", the only Christmas themed show of the series.

Alexis wears this gown when she crashes the Carrington family Christmas party on her way back from marrying Dex in London.

This gown is red fabric with ruby red bugle beads sewn in a zig-zag pattern. The round puff sleeves are red satin, as is the mermaid style bottom of the gown which begins with a length of ruched satin at the hip that diagonally crosses the front of the gown and circles around the hemline.
