The Cut tracked down Joan Rivers and her daughter Melissa, and the duo weighed in on the topic du jour: Kate Middleton’s style. And Joan had some nice things to say!
Joan: I think she’s going to be smarter than all of us put together. She’s got the body, she’s very thin, she’s got a great style to her. The hats are the terrible [Philip] Treacy hats — half of them I swear look like IUDs. But she knows what she’s doing, she’s smart, she’s older — it’s not like Princess Diana at 19. I think she’s looked gorgeous so far.
Melissa: Central Casting could not have sent over anyone more perfect. And people I know in the circle of both Prince Charles and Prince William say she is absolutely a hole in one. I think the clothes are perfect. The next thing is eventually she’ll cut her hair, and that will start a whole other trend. It’s that whole thing where she’s really pretty, but not where she’s intimidating to other women.
