Joan Collins looked glamorous Saturday night as she walked the red carpet at the Michael Josephson MBE Charity Ball in Manchester alongside her husband Percy Gibson.

The Dynasty star, 88, wore a black gown featuring bow ribbons on puffed sleeves. She accessorised the look with a chunky silver necklace and black heels.

She posed for photos alongside her younger Hollywood producer husband, 56, who was decked out in a black suit.

Collins recently addressed the age gap between the pair in an interview with The Times.

“Thank God I married somebody 30 years younger than me. I couldn’t bear to be married to someone my own age,” she said.

Collins took to social media to post a photo of her and her husband from the night with the caption, “We had a wonderful evening at the @michaeljosephson1 ball in Manchester, and with a little help from our great pal @biggins.christopher my jewellery and a future dinner date at @claridgeshotel raised £35,000 for #charity.”

Fans were quick to comment on the photo of Collins and her husband with one writing, “Gorgeous photo and wonderful cause.”

“That’s a beautiful photo of your both!

Organiser of the event Michael Josephson wrote his appreciation to Collins for her attendance, “Thank you so much @joancollinsdbe raising over £729,000 for children what an amazing evening.”

It’s not the first time Collins has wowed onlookers with her style, having turned heads with another black gown for a ribbing cutting ceremony at Christmas in 2020.

The star studded Michael Josephson MBE Charity Ball raised $750,000 on the night which will be donated to a number of children’s charities.
