I watched Joan Collins in ‘Joan Does Glamour’ the other night.  This ITV programme was hilarious!  What a legend this woman is!  I think she looks good for her age.  She certainly doesn’t believe that less is more does she.   But I do like her approach to glamour and age.  I didn’t agree with some of her tips (like an extra sharp eyebrow pencil..ouch!) and she can come across as a bit snobby at times, but I think that’s just the ‘luvvy’ in her.  I don’t know,… these theatrical types lol! artistic license I suppose.  She is great fun though!

But she’s right, why shouldn’t women look glamorous at any age.  I know I wouldn’t be seen dead without my make up on (and don’t worry, I won’t be seen dead without my make up on,  that will be arranged!!)  Joan got to glamorise three generations of the Littlefair family from Plymouth (and made quite a good job of it, I thought).  It was hilarious to see Joany in Primark, picking out loads of bargains for herself lol!  “Fleeces belong on sheep!’ declared Joan dismissing these warm items and saying  that every woman regardless of age, should have a black leather jacket in her wardrobe. (well I have Luvvy, but I’ve not worn it for years…)  She is absolutely delighted that shoulder pads are coming back.  I would be too (if I still had my waist…  I would look like a cereal box now)  I hope this programme is one of a series!
