There were so many fun aspects of playing Marci in The Mistle-Tones (which premieres this Sunday at 8/7 c on ABC Family!); I got to sing my fave Christmas songs including a Mariah track (dream come true!), dance my heart out, and work with some fabulous co-stars including momista Tia Mowry and my very own pup Mitzi.
But, I think the best part about playing Marci was the wardrobe. Her fashion inspiration seemed very snowbell faux fur-tastic chic. It was fun and over the top and I absolutely loved it. This meant lots of white, faux fur, sparkly gowns and a special vision of faux fur legwarmers. Doesn’t every diva need a pair of those? It was very Joan Collins in Dynasty meets 80’s rom-com villain-ess and I loved every minute of it.
Now Joan Collins’ character Alexis in Dynasty is a total fashion icon, and while we were filming I didn’t even realize the similarities in style between Alexis and Marci. But, recently a friend posted the above pic of Joan Collins as Alexis and I had that OMG moment… it’s SO Marci! You can’t deny the resemblance fashion-wise. Alexis in Dynasty was known for her over the top 80’s style – complete with sequins, shoulder pads, sparkly gowns and fabulous hats. Marci is my version of the modern day Alexis, and I couldn’t be more proud to carry on the Dynasty tradition of total and absolute chicness. My Dad would be proud!!
Will you be tuning into The Mistle-Tones on Sunday (8/7c on ABC Family) to see Marci in her Dynasty-chic finest?
