Inspiration: Dominique Deveraux
Dominique Deveraux, played by Diahann Carroll, was one of many of Alexis Colby’s (Joan Collins) nemesis’ in the 1980’s mega-hit show “Dynasty,” yet Diahann gave her character an unmatched grace, composure and charm. Stumbling across this clip on YouTube, her toughness and elitist wit drove me wild. I am infatuated with vintage glamour and the beaty of a truly refined woman, and Diahann is one of the world’s best. Plus, her comebacks to Alexis’ snares are priceless!
