Quotes by Joan Collins
"If life throws you a lemon - make lemonade."

"I was a pin-up girl. I did it for 30 years and, quite frankly, it gets a bit boring."
"I'm a fiend for costume jewellery and have countless pairs of rhinestone or diamante earrings, which are so flattering when they catch the light. I love the designers Alexis Bittar and Kenneth Jay Lane, and I always go to jewellers Butler & Wilson."
"I'm older than my sister so I started writing first. I started writing at school. I was always top of my class in composition, essays, English Lit and all of that."
