HomeTVABCJoan Collins Rushed to Hospital Because Oscar Party Dress Was TOO TIGHT! Jillian Bowe March 1, 2011 9 Comments Talk about suffering for fashion. According to The New York Post, Joan Collins was rushed to the hospital from the Vanity Fair Oscar party because her gown was too tight! The legendary actress was watching the telecast at the party when she started to feel light-headed. Husband Percy Gibson then called an ambulance. Collins was then taken quietly to the hospital where doctors told the actress she was fine after running some tests. Collins stated: . We had been there for seven hours, and I started feeling dizzy. I tried to get some air, but I felt really faint. I wanted to leave in our limo, but Percy decided to call an ambulance. We went to the hospital, and they did all the tests before the doctors told me I was absolutely fine and released me. 9 Responses met March 1, 2011 oh crap, Alexis say it isn’t so.

Some of those undergarments are really constricting. Log in to Reply vicki-love-hudson March 2, 2011 For a woman who’s nearly 80 years old, Joan looks extremely well-preserved. We’re not talking Botox at that age. Formaldehyde is more like it, I’d guess. Log in to Reply giogio March 2, 2011 Sounds like Joan was dehydrated. You know it has been happening to me, and it almost feels like death is evident. Its amazing what a few glasses of water can do in a short time. Poor Joan – Kisses out to you.

Now there’s a definite reason not to wear clothes that are too tight for you. At her age, Joan still looks incredibly sexy though.

She has managed somehow to keep her face and boobs but maybe the camera needs to aim at those instead of a total body shot. Maybe go in something a little less form fitting Joan. Plus one needs to be able to breath. It ain’t 1849 . We don’t provide fainting couches and sulfer to revive the fainting women folk anymore. Corsettes off moomoos on!
