Joan with Kimora Lee Simmons and George Kotslopoulos.
Fashion Week came to an end in New York practically ages ago, but rages on in Europe. With the shows still a week away from ending, I asked Fashion Police host and all-around hilarious person Joan Rivers to help make sense of the shenanigans. She provided her thoughts via email.
Can you make sense of Fashion Week for the rest of us?
Trying to make sense of New York Fashion Week is like trying to make sense of a party at Charlie Sheen’s house: tons of beautiful women, lasts for days, and it’s a miracle that no one died.
Which of the fashion capitals do you prefer: New York, London, Milan, or Paris, and why?
New York City, no question. Because I no longer have a sense of smell AND because running for your life is great cardio.
You filmed Fashion Police at Lincoln Center. What did you think of all the people swanning about outside trying to get shot by street style photogs?
Shooting in New York City was heaven, because the city has an energy that cannot be duplicated. Medicated, yes; duplicated, no.
We’ve seen some crazy hair and makeup on the runways so far this season. What’s your makeup philosophy?
My makeup and beauty philosophy is very simple. “If I can’t hide it, decorate it.” (There may be a Christmas ball hanging off my nose.)
