Joan Collins, the ageless icon of elegance, turned heads at the Victoria and Albert Museum summer party in London on Wednesday night, looking resplendent as ever. 

At 90 years old, the timeless actress graced the event in a radiant champagne gold sequin gown paired with a shimmering sequin cape, defying her years with effortless charm.

The screen legend was accompanied by her dapper husband Percy Gibson, 58, who donned a sophisticated navy suit. The Dynasty star elevated her glamorous ensemble with a metallic dress featuring a leg slit, sparkling heels, and dramatic silver earrings, oozing charisma and sophistication.

Never one to shy away from a bit of chic fun, Joan accentuated her look with a pair of fashionable shades, flashing an ebullient smile as she posed for the lenses. The 'DIVA' exhibition, open to the public from June 24th, aims to honour the 'power of iconic performers to transform and inspire' and examines the 'intersection of women, power, and creativity through the prism of performance'.

Over 250 objects across fashion, photography, design, and music will be featured at the event. Notable attendees included Trinny Woodall, Vick Hope, and Nicola Roberts.

Joan's spouse, Percy, the longest-standing of her husbands, hails from Peru and is a celebrated Hollywood producer, most renowned for producing the sensation Who Wants to be a Millionaire.

The age gap of over 30 years between them is inconsequential to Joan, as she's been known to quip in interviews: “If he dies, he dies.”

The power couple marked their 20th wedding anniversary with a star-studded celebration at Claridge's last year, reinforcing their enduring partnership. Percy, Joan's fifth husband, follows her previous marriages to Maxwell Reed, Anthony Newley, Ron Kass, and Peter Holm.
