E! Is Canceling “Fashion Police” After 22 Years

"Nicole Kidman does remind me of Audrey Hepburn in one way: Neither one of their faces has moved since the Nineties."

The red carpet just got a little duller: After more than 20 years, E! has announced it’s canceling Fashion Police, the celebrity-style bitchfest that introduced the world to the phrase “Who are you wearing?”


Gay icon Joan Rivers launched E!’s red-carpet coverage in 1995, injecting awards shows with her unique brand of snark and humor. Rivers left E! for the TV Guide Channel, but returned in 2010 to formally launch Fashion Police in its current form.

“Thank you to E! for having the vision to see the potential of Fashion Police, which changed both the entertainment and fashion industries,” co-host Melissa Rivers said in a statement. “I am truly proud to be part of this legacy.”

The show has seen a variety of panelists, including Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne, George Kotsiopoulos, Brad Goreski, NeNe Leakes, Christian Siriano, and Margaret Cho. After the comedian’s 2014 death, the network tried to reformulate Fashion Police with Kathy Griffin, but the chemistry never quite worked.

The long-running show will end on November 27 with a special retrospective, Fashion Police: The Farewell. Hosted by Melissa Rivers, it’ll include look back at some of the show’s most moments, including memorable editions of “Bitch Stole My Look,” and “Starlet or Streetwalker,” as well as footage from an unseen 80s-themed episode.
