Kathy Griffin Becomes Everyone’s Enemy by Dissing Amal Clooney for Wearing White Gloves
And all because she wore Old Hollywood-esque white gloves to the Golden Globes on Sunday (Jan. 11) while escorting trophy husband and formerly the most eligible bachelor, George Clooney.
she admitted that she knows she is “no Joan Rivers” (RIP), but nonetheless would not be holding back when it comes to barraging A-list celebrities’ fashion choices with insults.
Before diving into the Golden Globes, Kathy paid tribute to her friend, the late Joan, saying “Before I start making more enemies and burning new bridges, I want to thank my good friend. Joan, I know you are watching from heaven, but I am not afraid to bring the hammer down on anyone.”
Personally, Celebuzz put Amal on our “Best Dressed” list (and actually, Amal more or less tops every “list” that ever could exist – her fashion is always. on. point.). And while those white gloves are definitely questionable when it comes to “faux-pas” or “fashion forward”, Amal wins points for at least being unique in terms of the glove department.
Kathy put Amal as #1 worst dressed on her own list, calling her a) “annoying”. Not exactly sure what that has to do about her, ahem, fashion…but finally Kathy commented on Amal’s accessory, saying,
I thought it was weird she had those gloves that remind me of, like, a porn scene, where the guy goes home and there’s the naughty dishwasher and she only has the gloves…Like, she used those bovine insemination gloves to rake through her hair instead of a brush…But I’m fascinated how we’re like, not supposed to make fun of her because she married the great George Clooney. Look, everybody’s on the table, George! Nobody’s safe, nobody gets a pass.
Also in Kathy’s line of fire: Keira Knightley (and her butterfly monstrosity), Lana Del Rey (and that pleated seafoam green thing), Lorde (and her actually stunning black suit ensemble), Lena Dunham (Kathy snubbed her for not wearing something more ridiculous, as she has in the past), Claire Danes (arguably, it wasn’t that great), and the list goes on.
Though sadly, more often than not, it seems like Kathy spent more time trying to make enemies than policing fashion choices.
Kathy was right; she is no Joan Rivers. But we’re gonna give her a pass, and let her warm into the late Joan’s spot.
