Who Polices The Fashion Police?

March 13, 2010

I unfortunately watched almost the entire episode of the 2010 Oscars edition of E! Fashion Police while trying to enjoy a couple of Twinkies for breakfast. I’ve never understood why it appears to fall to B-list celebrities to offer criticism regarding A-list celebrities’ fashion choices. Do I really care if Jaye Manuel’s weirdly white-haired, over-tanned ass thinks that George Clooney should have gone to a barber before the Oscars? Has he looked at his own hair in the mirror lately? And where does Joan Rivers, a woman who looks like she got the majority of her plastic surgery done at a clinic in the backwoods of Russia, get off saying Meryl Streep looks like she’s the “First Lady of Russia”? What does that even mean?

The kicker on this particular video clip is the way they act about the amazing Gabourey Sidibe. They can just hardly contain their giggles when Joan points out that saying Gabby looked like they shot Avatar against her was mean. This “poor girl”? She looks “the best she has looked”? Khloe Kardashian, of all people, does not need to be laughing at this point because she gets trashed over her “weight problem” (wrongly, but hello) all the time. Their compliments are like insults. Gabby “covered her arms”! She was “slim on the hips”! She looked terrific “for her“. For her? And of course, the go-to “compliment” for any fat woman — she has so much CONFIDENCE. What a trooper, maintaining her self-esteem in the face of all that fat. God bless her. She may not look good, but at least she works that confidence.

Now that embroidery, that is gorgeous.

    I’m shocked nobody said her hair was her “best feature.” These people making comments about the fabulous Gabby — it’s like Cleveland making fun of Akron. Hey, you’re both in OHIO, okay? Shut the fuck up. After all the garbage in the week leading up to the Oscars about who was making her dress, who COULD make her dress (because nothing pretty could be designed for a figure past size 4), I thought she handled them with class. What do these self-proclaimed fashionistas want, anyway? Either women are anorexic when their bones show, are too fat when they’re more than 105 pounds, or aren’t even worth mentioning if they’re in the middle range. Heck, even Demi Moore gets airbrushed. If I were Ms. Sidibe I’d go to the Oscars with a spray painted, “I’m at the Oscars, BITCHES!” dress.

    “If I were Ms. Sidibe I’d go to the Oscars with a spray painted, “I’m at the Oscars, BITCHES!” dress.”

    HAHA that would have been awesome! With her confidence, she could really work that.

    OK. The words by themselves, “look the best she’s ever looked” COULD be a compliment. Until you watch the video and see the context and the tone and they’re like, throwing crumbs to her. “Aw how sweet you tried, honey”. Gross, gross, gross.

    Oh, and I hadn’t heard the Avatar joke, but thanks to the “pity”-mention, Rivers makes sure more people do. Classic Mean Girl move!

    She looked amazing, of course.

    I am really surprised the universe didn’t collapse from the swirling vortex of stupidity in that room. What a meeting of the “minds.”

    Okay, stop being so fucking hilarious. I too am tired of – let’s be honest – Z-list celebrities and the famous-for-being-famous folks dismissing folks due to size. Gabby has tremendous talent and I suppose since they can’t touch that picking on her weight is the only tool in their paltry bag of tricks.

    When I hear “she’s got confidence” I tend to read that as “how dare she not be ashamed?”

    She should definitely hide with some Tom Ridge approved duct tape on her windows until she’s acceptable to Joan Rivers.
