Fugger: Joan Collins

Royals Round-Up, March 27th, 2015

We had an outing from Kate and Wills earlier today, which you can find in all its glory here. But that doesn’t mean this post isn’t full of STUFF. We’ve got everything from dead kings interred somewhere more appropriate than a car park to Harry at a rugby match to Maxima very seriously painting a wall to Eggs Benedict Cucumber Sandwich to Joan Collins.

Elsewhere on GFY, if you haven’t entered our final giveaway of The Royal We, you must! The contest is open to everyone, and in addition to a signed copy of The Royal We, we are giving away all kinds of goodies.

SAG Awards Alexisly Played: Joan Collins

Our recapping slates are pretty full, but we probably HAVE to try to cover The Royals in some capacity, because of how Joan Collins will be on it as the Grand Duchess Helena (how she got that title remains to be seen — by the sounds of things her daughter Elizabeth “Queen Helena” Hurley is married to the king and not the blood heir herself — or, indeed, may never be explained). I don’t know how we are going to pull it off, but if Joan Collins can still give me Dynasty-style palpitations then I probably need to see where it goes. And she CAN still do it:

She is so fabulously legendarily Joan. Just please throw a drink in someone’s face soon. Actually, throw one in MY face. IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK?

Fugs and Fabs: Dramatic Arts Reception At Buckingham Palace

You can espy what Kate wore — and her chatting with a variety of these folks here. The subtext of everyone’s wardrobe is, “OMG I CAN’T LOOK SLUTTY IN FRONT OF THE QUEEN.” Everyone is totes apropos. Although Helena Bonham Carter looks like Eliza Doolittle’s before pictures, that probably IS totes apropos for HER at Buckingham Palace. Additionally, considering that Ralph Fiennes was ALSO in attendance, do you think anyone got drunk and sidled over to him and said, “LET’S GO TALK TO BELLATRIX, YOU WHO MUST NOT BE NAMED.”

Well Replayed, Kate Middleton

JOAN COLLINS IS INVOLVED. I’m pretty sure you guys understand what this means to me. It’s the best thing ever. Kate appears to be having a really good time, too. I can only imagine she asked her for tips in case there comes a time when she needs to throw a drink in William’s face.

Marchesa has done it again. If by “it” you mean “made a young person look like a deranged old bride who was locked in an attic for thirty years.”
