But on the 24th of May 1952, at the oh so tender ago if 19, Joan Collins (who for me will always be Alexis Carrington) married Maxwell Reed looking absolutely stunning in high neck long sleeved bolero atop a bodiced gown that emphasised her tiny waist to perfection. I love the glimpse of pattern you can see in the sumptuous fabric and her orchid bouquet is just lovely!

Glamorous, yes, but who knew Joan Collins could do chic too?
