Wedding Fever - Dynasty Style

   Dynasty had its own Royal Wedding when Alexis's daughter Amanda married Prince Michael of Moldavia, as shown on this issue of the American magazine, Evening Soaps.
Then who could forget Alexis's marriage to Cecil Colby ?

And in Season 5 when Alexis walked up the aisle again this time on the arm of Dex Dexter ...... Yes, Dynasty had its share of weddings!!

Dynasty Adverts

Back in May 2010 and again when Season 5 was released on DVD in the UK, I featured on the blog some of the adverts that had appeared in the US TV Guide magazines.

I have now added all those in my collection to the website starting with this one, the first to feature Joan as Alexis, dated 4 November 1981.  They can be found under advertising in the Dynasty Galleries section.

Is There Much Down There, Joan?

This picture from March 1989 was used in UK newspaper reports at the launch of the 2nd wax figure of Joan and it's unveiling at Madame Tussards waxworks in London.

According to reports Joan was not impressed with the model,and didn't like the hair, it was "too tightly curled and not dark like mine" she told Tussards staff, and "The face isn't right either - why the lipstick doesn't even cover my lips".

The £2000.00 gold lame gown was made by royal designers David and Elizabeth Emanuel to Joan's order.

The figure was to feature in a gallery of Hollywood stars alongside Michael Caine, Sylvester Stallone, Cher and Eddie Murphy, standing on a staircase as shown in this second press photo.

When I saw the waxwork on a trip to the museum days later, I wasn't impressed with it either and much preferred the first one from 1985.
