Joan Collins proved that age is most definitely nothing but a number in a sizzling new photo shared to her Instagram account as she rocked a strapless bikini while sunbathing during a vacation to St. Tropez, France. The former Dynasty actress and author of multiple books looked every inch the superstar as she posed on a lounge chair and got lost in a book.
In the snap, which the British star posted to her account on Monday, August 10, Joan sat back on a sun lounger and showed plenty of skin while flaunting her slim body that most people half her age would be proud of. She rocked a large brimmed sun hat with a red band that shielded her eyes from the French sunshine. She held on tight to a black book with both hands, showing off her glamorous long manicured nails.
The legendary star stretched her toned left leg out in front of her and bent her right as she placed both feet on a gray-and-white towel that was placed along the bottom of her lounger. She sat on top of a long, striped cushion that was tied over the top.
As for her fun two-piece, the octogenarian kept things coordinated for her day in the sun.
She wore a brown number with white stripes that ran vertically across her chest. She paired that with matching bottoms, which had a large white band at the top that stretched across her hips and perfectly showcased her mile-long legs.
Beside her was a white table where she placed a refillable water bottle and a pair of sunglasses.
In the caption, Joan shared her love of reading with her followers and also revealed her location, as she added the hashtag #sainttropez.
Plenty of fans heaped praise on the former American Horror Story: Apocalypse and The Royals actress. The comments section was flooded with impressed messages from her fellow Instagram users.
“Only joan can pull off wearing a bikini in her 80s,” one fan said.
“You look amazing Joan,” another commented with a fire emoji.
“What glamour and class you have, a true inspiration, you look wonderful,” a third person wrote.
The new bikini photo came shortly after Joan made headlines back in April after she and her husband, Percy Gibson, managed to escape a fire at their London apartment. The latter successfully managed to get the fire under control while they waited for firemen to arrive and tackle the blaze. Thankfully, the two were unhurt by the incident.
