Fashion Police Joan to Kathy

If you are truly a fashionista you are most likely familiar with the TV show Fashion Police on E!.  You are also probably aware that Kathy Griffin has recently replaced the late & great Joan Rivers.  So, the question that we are now facing is, “will the show be successful with its new host & cast?” 

Kathy has inherited the title, but will she adequately fill Joan’s shoes?  In all honesty, our verdict is still out.  Just curious as to your opinion.

The new Fashion Police With Kathy Griffin was brand new starting Monday January 12, 2015.  The day after the 72nd Golden Globe Awards so that there was plenty of issues available to discuss.  The new fashion panel show is back with new hosts Kathy Griffin, Brad Goreski, Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic.  Off the roster is obviously Joan Rivers and Brad Goreski.

Fashion Police is an American television series airing on E!.  The series became a weekly program on September 10, 2010 where the hosts discuss the dos and don'ts of celebrity fashion.  Kathy opened the new version of the show with a quick, sweet moment for Joan by staying, "I just want to thank my good friend, who we all miss, Joan Rivers. Of course. So Joan, I know you're watching from heaven but don't get it twisted. I will not be afraid to bring the hammer down on anyone and everyone. I learned from the best."  The previous version of the show often had celebrity hosts such as Khloé Kardashian, Ryan Lochte, Jay Manuel, Nicki Minaj, NeNe Leakes, Aubrey O'Day, Ali Fedotowsky, Snooki, Ciara, Chanel Iman, Melanie Brown, Tori Spelling, Zendaya, Kimora Lee Simmons, Chelsea Kane, Tara Reid, Bonnie McKee, Jaime Pressly, Tiffani Thiessen, Mischa Barton, Kylie Minogue, and Joan's daughter Melissa Rivers.  We assume that the new version of the Fashion Police show will also utilize famous celebs as guest hosts.
Fashion Police Hosts

By the way, the term fashion police existed prior to the show.   Essentially fashion police is defined as a term for people who are considered experts in dressing well who comment on the clothing of others.  If you are interested in reading an alternate definition that is not in regard specifically to the show on E!, you can read the fashion police term on Apparel Search.

About Kathy Griffin

Comedian Kathy Griffin is joining the cast of Fashion Police beginning in 2015.  Born in Chicago in 1960, Kathy Griffin's career as an entertainer began in 1980.  In the 1990s, Griffin began performing as a standup comedian and also appeared as a guest star on several television shows (such as her notable Seinfeld guest-appearance in the episode The Doll). She achieved recognition in a supporting role on the NBC sitcom Suddenly Susan (1996–2000).  Her breakthrough came on the Bravo reality show Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List (2005–2010), which became a ratings hit for the network and earned her two Emmy Awards for Outstanding Reality Program.  Griffin also previously hosted the talk show Kathy.  Griffin had previously made an appearance as a guest-host on Fashion Police in 2013.

About Giuliana Rancic

Giuliana dePandi, as a young girl moved from her hometown in Naples, Italy, to the United States.  She earned a degree in journalism from the University of Maryland and eventually a master's degree in journalism from American University.  After several television hosting jobs, including co-host of two Miss USA pageants, she was added as the solo host to E! News in 2005.  As co-host on Fashion Police, Rancic offers her fresh, trendy take on current fashion.  Along with her co-host position on Fashion Police, Rancic also stars in her reality TV series, Giuliana and Bill, that depicts family and career life of both spouses.

About Kelly Osbourne

Kelly Osbourne is the daughter of famous musician Ozzy Osbourne (yes, Apparel Search is a huge fan of Ozzy).  In the early 2000s, the MTV reality show The Osbournes brought Kelly and her family to the spotlight and came with both television and fashion opportunities.   In 2009 she got engaged to male model Luke Worrall and that same year is well known for her addition to season 9 of Dancing with the Stars, where she took third runner-up.   Osboune’s addition to Fashion Police is featured on her official website, kellyosbourne.com. Her eclectic style and unique variety of clothes offers each episode a different take on fashion.  Osbourne most often disagreed with Rivers, giving the show a more balanced representation of opinions.

About Brad Goreski

Celebrity fashion stylist and TV personality Brad Goreski is joining the cast of Fashion Police beginning in January 2015.  As a stylist his clients have included Jessica Alba, Demi Moore, Christina Ricci, Rashida Jones, and Minka Kelly.  He is also the star of the TV series It's a Brad, Brad World.

About Joan Rivers

In 1989, she had aired her own daytime talk show, and the next year won an Emmy Award and earned her place on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  By 1996, she was hosting the series, Live from the Red Carpet, on E! Network, which lead to her to the co-host position on 'Fashion Police'.  River’s special brand of critical humor and biting cleverness not only boosted ratings of Fashion Police, but also the ratings of E! News itself.  Episodes typically include River’s take on a recent celebrity outfit choice, where her opinion is the dominant point of view of the show.  River’s position as host of the show gives her an authority presence on fashion critique and acceptable ways to dress.  Although infamous for her negative statements about other’s wardrobe, Rivers has an equal history of complimenting celebrity style as well as making fun of her own choices.  On September 4, 2014, Rivers died at age 81 of cardiac arrest.  On September 22, 2014, the premiere of “Joan Day” hit a record of 1.1 million viewers.  Episodes of River’s best, funniest, most-watched jokes aired from 7am-7pm, including a special 90-minute commemorative episode.

About George Kotsiopoulos

His career took off as a Market Editor and Fashion Associate for the New York Times Magazine, where he launched himself into the fashion industry.  After eight years there, in 2005 he co-hosted Sephora for E! Entertainment as well as made appearances on Good Morning America as a stylist consultant.  In 2011, Kostiopoulos was featured in the 17th edition of OUT Magazine as one of the top 100 most influential gay men and women.  He joined the cast of Fashion Police in 2010 as a regular co-host.  Kostiopoulos commented well on the niche of men’s fashion.   Kotsiopoulos offered fashion advice for men and women based on a man’s point of view.

The "Fashion Police" debates the appearance of Hollywood's stars and duds.  This includes fashion spotted on the red carpet, in movies, on the street, etc.  Are they doing a good job at reporting the news and giving good guidance regarding the do’s and don’ts in regard to style and fashion.

Do you think that Kathy Griffin is a good replacement for Joan Rivers?  Possibly, it is too early to tell.  Maybe we should wait a few more episodes before making any sort of judgment.
