Joan Rivers At 100: Her Best Insults

And she looks like she’s 200. I’m kidding, of course. Rather, the vaunted comedienne’s E! channel talk show, Fashion Police, airs its 100th episode Friday, commemorating countless barbs about emaciated fashionistas, ceaseless ribbing on frumpy fashion fails, and years of her signature mixing of sartorial criticism with tell-it-like-it-is wit. As viewers of the show—which is co-hosted by Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana Rancic, and George Kotsiopoulos—and as fans can confirm, you come for the best-dressed lists, but stay for Rivers’s notoriously devastating barbs ridiculing the rich and famous.

(Her uncouth joke about Princess Diana, for example: “If you ever want to go to Paris, fly. Don’t take the tunnel.”) Here’s a sampling of Rivers at her most outrageous.
