Here is a young and beautiful Joan Collins enjoying a sunny day back in 1958. It wasn't until the 1960s when her acting career started to pick up; after she guest-starred in an episode of Star Trek. By the 1970s she was starring in a series of horror films and the 1980s brought her to her most memorable role, Alexis Colby in “Dynasty” for which she earned a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress. 

Dynasty was a soap opera that aired from January 12, 1981, to May 11, 1989, and revolves around the inner workings of the Carringtons, a wealthy family residing in Denver, Colorado. Linda Evans plays Krystle, the new wife oil magnate Blake Carrington. Joan Collins is Carrington’s former wife Alexis and as can be expected, the two women in his life do not get along.
