(She'd been commandeering the show since it premiered in 1995.) Over the years Fashion Police hosted heated debates and turned traditional fashion discussions on their head in segments like "The Five Must-See Looks of the Week", "Gotta Have It!, Make It Stop!", and "360 Degree Glam Cam" during live red-carpet events.

After Joan's death, Fashion Police made headlines with a string of PR stumbles.

In a world that's become increasingly worn out with aesthetic criticism and "Who are you wearing?", E! has chose to put the final nail in Fashion Police's coffin. It will also feature highlights from Joan Rivers" run on the show, as well as clips from an unaired episode featuring Joan Rivers and her co-hosts paying tribute to "80s fashion. It tried Kathy Griffin as a lead host but that only lasted seven episodes.

"We're going to take a look back and celebrate some of the show's most memorable moments and hosts and gags", E! president Adam Stotsky said (via Variety).

A November 27 special, Fashion Police: The Farewell, will pay tribute to the late Rivers with previously unaired footage of the iconic comedian. "Joan's beloved no-holds-barred style fueled the franchise's clever approach to fashion and comedy, and we are incredibly proud of its long-running success".

Exec producer Melissa Rivers became co-host in 2015, now joined by Rancic, Brad Goreski, NeNe Leakes and Margaret Cho.

"Fashion Police: The Farewell" will debut on E!

"I am so proud to have been a part of this show and am so proud that it's part of my mother's legacy", Melissa Rivers said. It will also feature surprise celebrity guests, taking viewers behind-the-scenes with insider scoop from cast and crew. "It really changed, along with the red carpets, awards-show programming and fashion". "Melissa Rivers, Lisa Bacon and Gary Snegaroff are executive producers".
