Tweet The Screen Actors Guild Awards took place last night in Los Angeles, and the only thing that matters is that Joan Collins was there. Obviously, she gets my coveted Best Dressed/Wear What You Want combo award because no one can compete with Alexis Morell Carrington Colby Dexter Rowan. I’m surprised that the other celebrities […]
