My mom doesn’t have an impeccable, designer-filled closet.

Ever since Joan Rivers died in September, “Fashion Police” — the E! show devoted to poking holes in celebrity pageantry that she had hosted since its inception — has been collapsing in plain view.
The show returned for red-carpet season in January with Kathy Griffin in Ms. Rivers’s chair, and the chipper stylist Brad Goreski as a new panelist, joining Kelly Osbourne and Giuliana Rancic, who’ve been gabbing on the show since its beginning.
From the outset, the new blend was…Continuar
