Joan Collins: The dodgy socks and plastic rain hat were my idea!

She's one of Britain's most glamourous stars, but expect to see a very different side to Dame Joan Collins in her latest film.

The actress sports a shapeless mac, socks, loafers and a plastic rain hat for her role in The Time Of Their Lives.

And it didn't take any convincing, as she came up with the idea herself after spending time in retirement homes to research the part.

In the comedy drama Dame Joan plays Helen, a faded Hollywood star who goes on a whirlwind adventure to France.

The movie is released on March 10.
