    Nolan Miller Design for Dynasty, Belted Flesh-Colored Beaded Gown Worn by Joan Collins for her Role as Alexis. Ca.1985. Gown: silk chiffon, bugle beads; Label: Nolan Miller Couture; Dress Size: 8.

    Flesh-colored chiffon, floor-length gown with draped bodice and spaghetti straps. The straight skirt is slightly gathered at the waist, with a center front slit that gradually curves from floor to mid thigh. The dress is hand-beaded with a tight overall zig-zag pattern and randomly placed faceted round beads. The spaghetti straps are beaded in three rows. The dress is closed with a zipper on the right side, and is fully lined in flesh colored chiffon. A weight has been attached to the lining at the back neckline, pulling the neckline down to enhance the draped effect. At the interior waist is a ribbon belt tied to the lining and secured with hook & eye. There is also an "eye" at the top of the slit, beaded like the dress and edged with two rows of bugle beads.

    Nolan Miller designed this gown for Joan Collins' role as "Alexis" on Dynasty. He created a specific "look" for each character and here one sees an example of the rich, powerful, domineering wardrobe designed for Alexis which was inspired by Joan Crawford. The aired episode is unknown for this gown. Fine condition with no noticeable bead loss. From the Nolan Miller Collection.
