Fashion Police (2002– )
User ReviewsReview this title
I find that the panel consisting of Giuliana Rancic - E Correspondent, Kelly Osbourne - Rock offspring royalty and George Kotsiopolous - Fashion Stylist make up a good balance of varied opinions. And the best thing is they all have one and they stand by what they say with conviction even if the others don't agree. It's also nice when celebrities come onto the show as it gives you a chance to see them as they really are. I have converted my negative opinions to ones of respect after watching some on Fashion Police e.g. Amber Rose seems like a really normal, sweet, reasonably down-to-earth person and just cause she dresses like a ho that does not make her one.
Now the reason I didn't include Joan Rivers in the panel is because honestly she is just the comedic relief host. I think we can all agree that she is there for veteran experience but the problem is her jokes are getting tired and vulgar to the point of making me want to be sick, and I don't offend easily. Also I find she is repeating the same bits over and over again which feels tired and stale. They've allowed her to be put up on a pedestal and it makes for uncomfortable scenes. It's painful to watch Giuliana's face as Joan says something truly offensive ("please get me off this show, I can't take this anymore"). And her untalented daughter Melissa tags along for the ride as a packaged deal. This is the reason in my opinion the show is an 8. It is a shame because if Joan wasn't there I would give it a resounding 10.
The show has some great aspects though including the games such as "starlet or streetwalker" and "guess me from behind". It is a bit of fun that breaks up the serious fashion. I also find myself being impressed by their comments regarding areas to improve outfits as for the most part they are insightful and correct. And the panel (excluding Joan) are quite objective and try hard not to bring their personal vendetta's into judging. They don't discriminate against weight, age or eccentricities and judge on whether the individual is living up to their potential and looks great for the individual they are. Although yes occasionally their b!tchy side does come out every now and then but who can honestly say they have never been a b!tch before in their lives. I know I can't.
