MOST WANTED: Beige tweed Krystle suit with fox tail wrap

This beige tweed suit is very simple and understated, but is given a big splash of over the top glamour with a lush and bountiful cluster of fox tails.  Something about the simplicity and clean lines of the suit combined with the dramatic fur wrap makes this a costume I really love.  In terms of the suits and non-evening wear, this ensemble ranks as one of my top favorites.  Beige and taupe look wonderful on Linda, and this suit is no exception. This ensemble is my top favorite non-gown costume of Krystle's from "Dynasty."  Krystle wears this to the reading of Cecil Colby's will, which leads to some great dialogue between her and Alexis (who was wearing widow's black of course.)  Based on a side drawing in the sketch, the display mannequin, and the model from the fashion show, I believe this outfit was originally designed to be worn with a white wide brimmed hat.  However Linda did not wear a hat with this outfit on Dynasty.

WANTED: If anyone has this costume, or any information on its whereabouts, please let me know!
