Joan Collins looks 'ageless' in bikini at 89: 'Inspiration'

Joan Collins has proved you don’t need to be young to don a bikini after sharing snaps from her summer holiday in Saint-Tropez in France.

The 89-year-old showed off her svelte figure in a powder blue halter neck bikini, finishing off her look with sunglasses and a large straw hat.

“Nothing like having fun in the sun!” she wrote on Instagram as she enjoyed her time in the pool.

The British actress also shared a sweet selfie with her fifth husband Percy Gibson, 57, who she married in 2002.

Fans were astounded at how good the Dynasty star looked, with many telling her she looks "ageless".

“I love the fact that you still wear a bikini — I’m like you, age should not define you,” a fan commented.

“Just love you Joan, you go girl, if I look half as good as you at your age in the pool I’d be happy. Glad you’re enjoying life,” a second remarked.


"Bowing to you! You have WON the ageing game and you are a great inspiration!” gushed a follower.

“Is that a bikini? I can’t wear a bikini at 62,” one wrote, while another added it was "hard to believe" she was 89 years old.

The Golden Globe winner is 32 years older than her husband, and some fans said the age gap wasn’t noticeable at all.

“They look the same age in this photo. Living the good life,” a fan wrote.

However, there were some people who were concerned about the pair's health.

“Joan, check that thing on your arm. No, not Percy. I know you eschew sunlight but…” a fan wrote, referring to a dark spot on her arm.

“Mr Percy Sir, get that suncream on quick!” another added, pointing out his sunburned skin.

“She’s way too old to be swimming,” another wrote worriedly.
