One area where Dynasty was the undisputed champ against Dallas was fashion. While Dallas had common, undistinguished clothing for its characters, Dynasty fashion was so popular and influential on television, it started its own industry. Both Linda Evans and Joan Collins started their own popular fashion lines, and magazine covers across the country celebrated Dynasty fashion. Dynasty, with its glammed up powersuits and shoulder pads, redefined fashion for the eighties. See more »

Where else can you find the bitchiest 50 year old, dressed in the most extravagant gowns of all time? Sounds like the perfect show to me! Yes, Dynasty was without a doubt that one show that basically encouraged fans to sit back, put up their feet and watch how these "rich bastards" are living! No other show, not even the ultra popular Dallas, could take fantasy to that level. The show made you feel as though you too could be a Carrington living in a mansion and drinking champange. The "storylines" or perhaps lack of, left plenty of room to emphasize what audiences really wanted to see: sex, power, vanity and the most expensive jewels in all the world! This is Dynasty and the 80s at its very best!
