Fashion Police and Ice Bucket Chic

In case you missed last night’s episode of Fashion Police on E!, it was fabulous. Not only were we joined by the gorgeous Orly Shani and the one and only George Takei, but I accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, issued to me by none other than Sarah Jessica Parker, Anne Hathaway and Tara Reid. Tara confronted me on my way into E! to make sure I honored the challenges, which I did and then promptly summoned security. Watch the video at E! Online.

For last night’s episode (and for my three-part ice bucket shower), I happened to be wearing one of my favorites from my Classics Collection on QVC: my Tweed Jacket with Pockets and Bracelet Sleeves. With a fabulous fringe all around and an open-front design, it’s a polished and sophisticated jacket. I’m absolutely crazy about it! Below is a photo of two of the gorgeous (and tall and skinny… but I still adore them) girls who model my collection at QVC. Suzanne on the left is wearing the brown and beige – the same one I wore. Amanda (on the right) is wearing the black and white.

If you’re going to host a popular television show, pour three buckets of ice water over your head, and look as chic as possible in the process, this jacket was the way to go. (And after the ice bucket, the jacket bounced back beautifully and was perfect again after a drip dry.) Here’s the link to the Tweed Jacket on QVC: http://qvc.co/JRTweedJacket

  13. What I admire most about you is how you never gave up through all of life’s adversities. You always made lemons out of lemonade no matter how hard rhe circumstance, and you never stopped making us laugh. If it’s time to go, go knowing you did everything right and you showed us how to live every minute of life with gusto.

  14. I’m so glad I found this website as I have this need or thirst to see how Joan’s doing. For the first time, I tevo all the celebrity news shows and find myself just fast forwarding thu them to try to find updates, sometimes disappointed that they can go on w/o mentioning her (over the weekend). I have you all in my prayers and do appreciate those shows that have kept us informed and those who have honored her as she deserves. Its amazing how much everyone that’s close to her loves her.

  15. Oh what a shocker ! The world is not ready to canonize you to saint hood yet . God bless from Robert former head waiter House of Lords . X

  16. Thank you Joan, for all the joy you have given me all these years. You were one of the best. Melissa your family will be in our prayers.

  17. Joan, I HAVE always LOVED you!! On stage, during interviews, on shows you were in, and the past few years I got to see you “daily” on Fashion Police. Watching the Movie Stars through your wit was the BEST. I will miss you greatly. Prayers for Melissa. ♥

  18. Every time I laugh, I will think of you. Every time I see a gown, good or bad, I will think of you. You made me belly laugh out loud even when I am by myself. I am a widow and my children and grandchildren keep me going as did you. You will be missed and forever loved. You DID have an Amazing life and were so loved and appreciated for so many things. I wish you everlasting peace and love. Melissa and Cooper, you were so lucky to have had her in your life. May God bless you during this difficult time.
