As most of the world (America to be sure) mourned the death of comic legend Joan Rivers there were those pop fashionistas left wondering about the status of her E! show “Fashion Police.” Up until the week of her procedure/hospitalizing/death Rivers had worked on an Emmy red carpet broadcast and on stage, in fact she was working as much as ever, often joking she’d die on stage.
Living 81 years pretty much doing what you love one can’t ask too much more out of life really.
But what will become of one of the most recently popular shows about fashion? Will Joan Rivers’ death kill-off the popular E! Network award-show broadcast feeding freezing? Will celebs be free now to walk the red carpet no longer fearing Joan and guest hosts comical jabs at what they are wearing? Like it or not, agree with the show’s findings and intent or simply dismiss it all as too much pop culture fodder, “Fashion Police” was a popular show that for many determined the does and don’ts of celebrity style. We don’t have an awards show these days without hours of prelim red carpet entrances, interviews and the ubiquitous “Who are you wearing?” and Fashion Police set the standard for the couture cutting up, wardrobe dress down.
Joan and crew took celebrity down a few notches poking fun at not only what American’s answer to royalty was wearing but how serious they were when wearing it.
Well it seems E! will indeed keep the popular show running. The announcement from the entertainment television network is that “Fashion Police” will indeed return on Monday, January 12th 2015 for Golden Globe Awards coverage. Who all will be on the show that has, at times, featured guest hosts George Kotsiopoulos, Giuliana Rancic and Kelly Osbourne E! is not yet saying but it seems Joan Rivers’ daughter Melissa has a lot of say here and with the network will probably have things well figured before that beginning of January airing.
