We know from her documentary that QVC jewelry queen Joan Rivers is a workaholic, but she still continues to amaze us with all her ventures.
In the latest expansion of her activities, the E! “Fashion Police” specials that Rivers often hosts have became a weekly series. We caught a repeat of the first one Monday, while we were at the gym.
Rivers makes her catty comments along with a panel that includes a slimmed-down Kelly Osbourne, E! and Style Network whatever Giuliana Rancic and celebrity stylist George Kotsiopoulos. The show’s normal time slot is Friday’s at 10:30 p.m.
According to E!, “Backed up by her chorus of ‘couture cops,’ Kelly, Giuliana and George, Rivers and company will cut a swath
through the jungle of tacky celebrity fashion to reveal who fizzled, who sizzled and who should have just stayed home in a housecoat. They will cover the good, the bad, and most assuredly the ugly, along with everything in between.”
On the installment we saw, Rivers blasted Julia Roberts for the kimono-like dress that the actress wore to the debut of “Eat, Pray, Love” in Japan. The comedian made a comment to the effect that Roberts’ dress was the biggest bomb to hit Japan since Hiroshima.
The panel liked some of Jessica Alba’s looks, and hated others. Alba can do no wrong in our book, since we share the same birthday, April 28.
It’s obvious that Rivers hates anything Miley Cyrus wears, but thinks Taylor Swift is a fashion icon, along with Natalie Portman.
One of the show’s segments is “Starlet or Streetwalker?,” which is exactly what it sounds like. But we suggest a better name for that bit: “Starlet or Harlot?” On the episode we saw, the Fashion Police panel pegged a hot-pants wearing woman as a hooker, and when the woman’s face was revealed it was Kate Gosselin.
Some of the show’s other segments include “Red Carpet Roll-Out,” which takes viewers to star-studded events around the world, and “Rack Report,” which showcases those female celebrities who are carrying more than their fair share up top.
The fashion police also hit the streets to assess the style choices of celebrities out and about in the “Caught Casual” segment, and will skewer who show a bit too much flesh in “Skin Flick.”
Other segments include “What the Hell Happened to…” and “What Were You Thinking?” And the fierce foursome will spotlight some of Hollywood’s tastiest tresses in “Hair Play.”
Finally, some of the hottest names in fashion will stop by the set to bring the latest style news and their own personal opinion to the debate.
The “Fashion Police” team will also visit TV and film sets to get an inside look at the wardrobes of today’s hot celebs.
Joan’s commentary and her three fellow “police” will close each episode as she runs down the final ‘best and the worst’ of the week.
