TOP FASHION IN THE NEW DYNASTY SOAP OPERA
FEUDS AND DRAMA
Dynasty is back. The CW’s modern remake of the Eighties hit prime-time soap opera is bound to lure both old and new fans fascinated by the feuds between the Carrington and Colby families, rich, powerful and ruthless, that unreel in the city of Atlanta.
The new Dynasty is the brainchild of Sallie Patrick and duo Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage of “Gossip Girl” and “The O.C.” with costume designer Meredith Markworth-Pollack working plenty of high-drama and over-the-top fashion statements just like in the original one. Sans the power dressing, bold shoulders and blown-out hair dos, the clothes obviously reference the current times with luxury brands such as Marc Jacobs, Balmain, Saint Laurent, Christian Louboutin, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen and heaps of Gucci at the forefront.
As for the cast, Grant Show is Blake Carrington, Elizabeth Gillies stars as Fallon Carrington, Blake’s ambitious and headstrong daughter, while Nathalie Kelley plays Cristal, Blake’s lover. Alan Dale perfectly steps into the role of Anders, Blake’s opinionated butler.
