Joan Collins has apparently never heard the the old adage, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."

The 78-year-old British actress is acting just as catty as the "Dynasty" character, Alexis Carrington, she's best known for playing.

With her new book, "The World According To Joan," Collins calls it as she sees it, and doesn't hold anything back. The book puts down reality TV stars, modern fashion, and makes the assertion that men are "turning gay because women are unfeminine", reports The Telegraph who asked her for thoughts on some of today's A-list stars.

Upon seeing a photo of actress Kate Winslet at the Venice Film Festival, the paper reports Collins let out a sigh and said, "Oh, that's a dreadful dress. The worst dress. And ghastly shoes and an awful hair style."

Collins takes fashion very seriously. After all this is the same woman who after feeling faint was rushed from this year's Vanity Fair Oscar party in an ambulance -- all because the dress she wore was too tight.

Collins also said she didn't want to comment on actress Carey Mulligan, but then told The Telegraph, "I can't believe she's playing Eliza Doolittle in a new movie." All Collins would say about Kiera Knightley is that she's thin, and that while singer Adele is talented, she wears terrible hair pieces.

Wondering Collin's thought's on Kate Moss? She says Moss is "OK, but she's not Linda Evangelista."

Collins has never been shy with her opinions about celebrities, and in 2010 told the UK's Hello! magazine that she didn't think there were many good looking actresses around today, with the exception of Angelina Jolie.

"Jennifer Aniston is cute, but I wouldn't call her beautiful. I think that's why Cheryl Cole is so popular, because she is just so pretty and public are starved of gorgeous people," she declared.
