Dame Joan Collins reflected on a time she attended The Carousel Ball in 1996 with Dynasty designer Nolan Miller and crossed paths with many star-studded guests. The 88-year-old met up with the likes of Sir Rod Stewart, William Shatner, Sophia Loren, Kevin Costner and Raquel Welch.
In a swipe at the latter, she said of her outfit: “Raquel is wearing the most awful rhinestone necklace, bracelet and earrings and she is not exactly svelte, although her skin is good.”
Joan went on to say her fellow actress looked as though she borrowed a “dinner jacket from her boyfriend”, who she claimed looked like Pierce Brosnan.
“When I ask her where she met him, she’s snappy and doesn’t want to answer,” she added.
The actress went on to say she “raised eyebrows” after allegedly hearing Raquel, 81, ask Dominick for some work.
In an extract from her My Unapologetic Diaries book obtained by the Mail Online, she also took a swipe at Sophia Loren.
Joan said that while she was looking “very good” she had “very odd teeth”.
She added: “They look like they’ve been carved out of ivory and are very big!”
The Dynasty star had nicer words to say about Rod, who attended the event with his now ex-wife Alana Stewart.
“He is very funny, charming and witty, more than you can say for most here,” she spilled.
Despite her swipe at Raquel, the pair have seemed to be on friendly terms in the past.
In 2008, the pair were all smiles for the camera at the Oscar de la Renta Boutique.
Three years later, Joan posed for a snap alongside her and Alana at John Wayne’s Cancer Institute’s 26th Annual Odyssey Ball.

In the same year, she stood beside Raquel and her Dynasty co-star Stephanie Beacham for a picture.
Joan’s most memorable role is her stint as Blake Carrington’s (played by John Forsythe) wife Alexis in the ABC series.
It is reported that Sophia, Elizabeth Taylor and Raquel were considered for her role at first.
The latter first gathered media attention for her role in Fantastic Voyage back in 1966.
She soon became an international icon following her stint in One Million Years B.C.
Despite only having three lines in the film, pictures from the movie of her sporting a bikini became best-selling posters.
In pictures taken last month, Raquel was seen looking worlds away from those snaps as she sported casual attire in Beverly Hills.
According to the Mail Online, it was the first time she had been spotted in public for two years.
My Unapologetic Diaries by Joan Collins, published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson is out on October 14.
