Joan Collins' Approach To The Adventure In Wonderland Ball? Sparkle And Steal The Show

In case you were wondering, this is how to do elegance at 80 years-old. Joan Collins was at last night's Adventure in Wonderland Ball at Bridgewater House in London looking, well, spectacular.

Holy moly, how does she do it? The British actress arrived looking fabulous in a black floor-length gown complete with cut-out sequin detailing and cape. In fact, this whole sparkly ensemble had clearly been styled to a Tee - the black embellished courts, the black velvet clutch, those long satin gloves? She's a sexy lady.

Joan's sophisticated style totally stole the show at last night's ball proving that a little effort goes a long way (take note Eliza Doolittle in your scruffy kicks).

Seriously, the lady owns glamour. The Hollywood 'do, the immaculate smoky eyes and plum lipstick a la Joan Collins is an impressive look.

Take a look through this style file to see more from this little treasure - she has every pose perfected too...
