The pink one is an iconic Alexis dress and one of my favourites. I also really like he red velvet with ruffle shoulders, the black beaded with paisley beaded sleeves and the gold lame. How amazing to own all of these!

I think the pink was Joan's top favorite gown too. She wore it for a lot of things, publicity photos, advertisements for her products, and to the People's Choice Awards where she won her only "Favorite Actress" award. (Odd that Joan only won one, and Linda won 6 years in a row?...)

Thank you Mike! So glad you visit my blog and are interested in the Dynasty costumes.

Well unfortunately the only gowns I have in my collection are Joan gowns... I'd love to acquire some of Linda's and a few Diahann's too.

However, I did recently acquire two new costumes that are not Alexis for a change! The pale gray fox trimmed outfit that Dominique wears when she first meets Alexis, and a blue velvet and satin robe and negligee worn by Sable on The Colby's and Dynasty too. I haven't taken proper pics of them on a mannequin yet, but I plan to soon!

Well if ever there was an iconic Dominique outfit then that is surely it! You have the best! I would love to see some photos of that. You need to do some sort of exhibition.

Well at the moment I'm just collecting but I would love loan them to a museum for exhibition or use them towards a book project some day. I don't have enough pieces to make a book out of, but maybe if other collectors came forward we could all collaborate together.

Thank you Alexis! I think this is Dominique's most iconic outfit too. Though I do love some of her gowns as well.

The outfit needs a good steaming, but otherwise is in perfect condition. What's interesting is how gray it actually is. The bright studio lights made it look white in promo pictures especially.

(Picture won't upload through my cell. Will try on laptop tomorrow.)

You have a lovely collection of dresses. :)
I voted for the black one since it's most timeless.

I like the red and pink colors more and I love the beaded dresses. But the puffy arms are a bit too 80s for my taste.

Mike, those are all great costumes. My top favorite Alexis gown is the red satin jail gown! That is the one Alexis costume I am hoping to acquire the most. I have found no traces of it since the 1980's... I own the sketch of the jail gown.

Nolanmillercollector,I hope you get it,and you are on the way of getting Diahann Carroll gowns too.This is why I like like Nolan.He can change one part of a suit or a gown and make it look different.The red gown is one of my favorites.Can you see the same gown that Stephanie is wearing.Minus the sleeve BehQYDWIQAAUh_x.jpg 819full-stephanie-beacham.jpg 64aa9d765f87c455e756375c9c08a21e.jpg The same cut on the bottom and at the top.

Thank you Mike! Me too! It seems to have disappeared... Probably in a private collection.

That Sable gown is gorgeous. Her costumes on The Colby's were fantastic. Stephanie had a great figure.
