We can always count on Joan Rivers to make us laugh, and this interview is no different.
The 77 year old recently chat with New York Magazine and discussed all things fashion, celebrity and the red carpet.
Here are some HIGHlights:
On hosting E's weekly Fashion Police:
"Well, I'm not on the red carpet anymore. When you're on the red carpet, you get word from on high: "Don’t say anything bad about Angelina Jolie because she’s a friend of the network. Don’t say anything bad about Sarah Jessica Parker because she's a friend of the network." No one says anything bad [about celebrities] — they’re not going to say, "Your ass is too big, and you shouldn’t be wearing that color, and you look like a fool."
You can’t say that so what’s the point of doing the red carpet? So the Fashion Police, when they came to me, they said let her do it. I don’t have to meet them on the red carpet. I don’t have to deal with Rihanna. Rihanna and I will never meet unless we both go clubbing together, and I don’t think we’ll go to the same clubs.
On the latest red carpet trend:
"What they’re starting to do now, which worries me, is they’re all trying to copy Lady Gaga. You want to say to Katy Perry, "You’re beautiful! You’ve got the body, wear a pretty dress.You don’t have to strap electrical stuff on your dress."
"I just think Prada should be shut down, and truly I think they hate Americans. I think they’re still angry at us for WWII."
On her style:
"My personal style, I think, is over-the-top dowager. Because I do love the feathers this year, I love the lace, I love all that stuff. The old days they said get dressed and take one thing off, I say get dressed and put one thing on."
On New York Vs. LA style:
"I think New York women have such style, and it’s not about money, it’s just the look and the pace and the activity. And in L.A., they’re very beautiful and they all look exactly alike, which is good because if we go to war they’re all in uniform. They’ve got the same bag, the same jeans, they’re exactly alike. New York women, they look like they’re going to an art opening. They look smart. "
On where she shops:
"I shop my closet a lot. I’ve taken a lot of jackets and added things. I work with my stylist on it. Before you cut into a vintage Yves Saint Laurent, you better fucking know what you’re doing.
Every time I get together with Melissa we go to Barneys and we go to Bergdorf's. And also the ten-dollar-and-under stores in the airport, where I buy scarves and cheap jewelry that’s going to break, but you can wear it once. And in London, the only place you go is Topshop. I buy anything that sparkles. Topshop is just amazing because you run in, you come out, you look like a whore. It’s great."
"I wear heels every day — that’s my generation. I like the high heel, but I don’t like it with a platform. You start getting up on the platforms, nine inches — no, no, no, my circus days are over. I have a couple of Chanels with pearls on them and they’re just so beautiful, but I always wear a high heel and usually it’s a Manolo or Stuart Weitzman."
Love her brutal honesty!
