Nolan Miller dies at age 79

Nolan Miller, the mastermind behind the exquisite, glamorous fashions enjoyed by millions of viewers of "Dynasty" and "The Colbys," has passed away. The news arrived on his Facebook page earlier today from fellow designer Mark Zunino:

"It is with great sadness that I need to inform you of Nolan's passing last night. He fought a brave five-year battle against non-smokers lung cancer. Nolan truly loved and appreciated all of his fans. In lieu of flowers or cards, a donation can be made in his name to the American Cancer Society. Thank you all for your kind words and support over all the years."

The esteemed, Texas-born costume designer worked on the wardrobes of his "Dynasty" stars for other shows, too: Joan Collins for "Pacific Palisades" and Emma Samms for "Models Inc." He got his start clothing the stars in the '60s and worked on myriad shows over the years, such as "The Love Boat," "Hart to Hart," "Charlie's Angels" and many more. Our condolences to his family.
