Here’s the thing about Joan Collins: You don’t reach this level of iconhood or remain a star for this many decades without a deep understanding of how the public sees you. So in order for Joan to fulfill the Met Gala theme of camp…
… all she really had to do was just show up.
Sure, Valentino helped, but we fail to see how this supremely campy getup is any different from the majority of her promotional style in the last 30 years.
