Joan Collins steps out in leathers for film festival

Joan Collins normally embraces big shoulder pads and glamorous style in her fashion choices.

Joan Collins still knows how to surprise!

The 84-year-old, who admits her usual style is ‘glamorous’, took a slightly more downplayed look while hitting the red carpet for the screening of My Generation during the BFI London Film Festival. 

It was less the normal ’80s  shoulder-padded glamour and more ’60s chic, with a fitted top, bright red flared skirt teamed with a leather jacket, gloves and knee-high boots. With a black cap and bright red lipstick it was certainly reminiscent of a different era.

Talking to Express, Collins said she’d released her own make-up range in 2014, called Timeless Beauty, to empower women.

“Make-up has a way of making women feel confident and empowered, and that’s what I wanted from Timeless Beauty,” Joan Collins said, reported Express.

While she says she always tries to keep her face out of the sun, and wears a good SFP sunscreen, Collins says her skincare routine is also important.

“I always make time for my skincare routine, especially when cleansing my face. I love any skincare products with vitamin C and E in it, and my Superlift Eye Serum is amazing at making eyes look bright and radiant.”
