JOAN COLLINS 80 YEARS OF SEXY; Eat your heart out, Beyonce and Ri Ri. Our homegrown diva Joanie, who celebrates her birthday this week, has corsets older than you...

Byline: Ruth Huntman

2001 Pushing 70, but Joan goes glam even when she's collecting her pension. No, not really, she's dressed up for a role in a play.

1994 Despite the slightly ghostly make-up, Joan's appearance is still the thigh point of any red carpet event.

2013 Still got it, backstage at her one-woman show. Other octogenarians go for naps and big slippers, our Joanie's rocking Cru-leather De Vil.

1984 The TV movie The Cartier Affair may have sunk without a trace. But as usual Joan dazzled.

1983 Half a century an not out as Joan gets the ultimate sex symbol accolade - being asked to pose naked for Playboy, aged 50.

1978 Joanie's flagging acting career swung back to success after this raunchy moment in The Bitch - a mucky movie based on her sis Jackie's dirty book.

1979 La Collins literally drove the blokes crazy in a sexy chauffeur's cap when she appeared in adult movie The Stud, the sequel to The Bitch.

1969 Like a sultry flamingo, posing on one leg on a rock... In her 30s and showing off her toned tummy. Jealous, much?

1956 The girl from London was making her mark in Hollywood in her early 20s and already showing off her er, impressive starlet credentials.
