      IMPORTANT! There is nothing wrong with Elsa Pataky’s baby bump! We are not the E! Network! Everyone calm down!

      [We posted this on Facebook earlier today, but wanted to put it here too, just so we don’t miss anyone…] It’s come to our attention that, yet again, the E! Network “Fashion Police” show has brought the Fashion Police name into disrepute by apparently mocking Elsa Pataky’s baby bump on air. We’re getting a bit of abuse on Twitter about this (This has extended to people asking if our Twitter account should be shut down: things like this could obviously have quite serious implications for our brand and business, and it’s really disturbing to us that people will do things like this without checking to make sure they’re targeting the right person…), so we just want to clarify once again…


      Happy holidays from The Fashion Police!

      Well, Style Squad, it’s once again that time of year when we hang up our handcuffs for a few days and take some time off to celebrate the holiday season. We’ll be back in a few days, but before we go we’d like to take the opportunity to wish all of our readers a very happy holiday, if you’re celebrating. Stay safe, stay stylish, and don’t worry: we’ll be back soon, fighting crimes of fashion and solving style dilemmas! Happy Holidays! The Fashion Police x

      Happy 4th of July from The Fashion Police

      As many of our readers are based in the United States (and we’re actually based there ourselves right now), we’d like to take this opportunity to wish those of you celebrating the holiday a very happy 4th of July. We’d also like to take this opportunity to remind you that there are lots of tasteful and appropriate ways to give your outfit a patriotic feel today. And then there’s this adult onesie, worn with a pair of faux Uggs (or, as we like to think of them, FUGGS.): Onesie: BooHoo Stay stylish, everyone!


      We’re taking the day off…

      Good morning, Fashion Police officers! It’s a public holiday here in the UK, so we’re taking the day off: we’ll be back to business tomorrow, but until then, here are some older posts you might have missed…. The Chief of Police fesses up to buying a smock (the horror!) and getting stuck inside her clothes. That dastardly evil-doer known as The Clothes Ripper has struck again: check out his unfortunate victim here. Want to be one of those immaculately dressed people who never seem to have a hair out of place? Don’t want to have to get up early every morning to do it? Here are some tips on how to look good: fast… Missed out on that amazing item…


      Happy Easter from The Fashion Police!

      It might not feel much like Springtime, but the Easter weekend is upon us, and The Fashion Police are taking a couple of days off to rest, recuperate – and probably get our Spring/Summer clothes out of storage, even although that’s just a little bit optimistic of us right now. Whether you’re celebrating the holiday, enjoying the long weekend, or just getting on with business as usual, we hope you have fun doing it, and we’ll see you back here on Tuesday, with more crimes of fashion and style sleuthing.

      Happy New Year

      Happy New Year!

      The title says it all… Once again we’re taking a few days off to celebrate the start of the New Year. We’ll be back in 2013, with more fashion failures and successes, but before we go, we want to say a quick thank you to our readers for your continued support: we hope 2012 was a good one for you, and that 2013 will be even better! See you next year! The Fashion Police x


      Happy Holidays from The Fashion Police

      Friday is by far our favourite day of the week (no surprises there, then…) but this Friday is a particularly good one because it’s the last Friday before Christmas, and therefore our last working day before the holidays. We’ll be taking a few days off to enjoy the holiday, but let us first of all wish all of our readers a very happy Christmas if you celebrate it: we hope you have a wonderful break, and we’ll be back just before New Year to round up some more crimes of fashion!

      please stop emailing us about Joan Rivers

      To the people who keep emailing us about Joan Rivers and her use of fur…

      Over the last couple of hours, we’ve been inundated with angry, and often very abusive emails, all relating to Joan Rivers, who we gather has worn fur, or made some kind of statement supporting the use of fur: we don’t know, because as most of our readers have (hopefully) realised by now, WE ARE NOT THE E! NETWORK. We have no connection to the Fashion Police TV show, or to Joan Rivers, Kelly Osbourne, or anyone else who appears on it. We are unable to answer your questions or concerns about the show, and we are certainly unable to influence how its presenters behave, or what they wear. This is because we are a completely separate organisation, which is not even based in the same…

      Union Jack Fashion

      We’re on holiday…

      As our UK-based readers will doubtless know, we have a two-day public holiday this week to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. We’ll be celebrating in the appropriate fashion, by draping ourselves in Union Jacks, drinking lots of tea and generally being very British. OK, we won’t, we’ll probably just drink wine instead. We don’t actually like tea, you see. Or Union Jack clothing, for that matter. We’ll be back on Wednesday: until then, we leave you with some patriotic crap stuff to keep you going. Cheerio, chaps! Products: Crafted, £18 Red Herring navy blue shoes, £12 Mantaray rubber boots, £21 Forzieri hard clutch, $599 Lulu Guinness enamel brooch, $90 EVOCATEUR gold bangle, $298 Timex watch, £50 Erfurt wool scarve, £89

      happy easter from the fashion police

      Happy Easter from The Fashion Police

      It’s the Easter weekend, which means The Fashion Police will be downing tools and eating a LOT of chocolate between now and Tuesday, when we will return to fight fashion crimes and show you photos of pretty dresses. Until then, we hope you have a fabulous weekend: Happy Easter to those who celebrate it, and happy Friday – Tuesday to those who don’t! The Fashion Police x

      Happy New Year

      Happy New Year to all our readers

      It’s not quite New Year yet, of course, but as we don’t normally post on the weekends, we thought we’d just take this opportunity to say Happy New Year to all our readers, and to thank you for your support over the past year. Thanks for reading, and may 2012 be as full of fashion crimes as 2011 was! Take care, have fun, and we’ll see you all in 2012! The Fashion Police x

      Christmas gift

      Happy Holidays from The Fashion Police

      We wish we had a REAL gift for all of our readers, but as we don’t, we hope you’ll accept this virtual one instead… As usual, we’re taking a few days off over the next few days, which means you’re all free to dress as badly as you like, without fear of arrest. We hope you have a wonderful holiday, whatever you’re wearing, and we’ll be back soon to share more crimes of fashion with you! The Fashion Police x

      Happy Thanksgiving from The Fashion Police

      Happy Thanksgiving to our American readers, who are probably all too busy enjoying/tolerating the holiday to even read this! For those of you still here, we just wanted to let you know that we’re also taking a couple of days off: we leave you with this adult onesie from Topshop, which will be perfect for sleeping off the effects of a turkey dinner, and some links to our favourite older posts. Enjoy, and we’ll be back as usual on Monday! Skin Colour is Not a Fashion Statement Why it’s just as OK to be pale as it is to be any other colour.

      It’s the Royal Wedding: we’re taking the day off

      [] Today is the day of Prince William’s wedding to Kate Middleton, and, as a result, it’s been declared a public holiday here in the UK. Monday is ALSO a public holiday in the UK, which means that, yes, it’s another long weekend for lucky, lucky us. We may or may not check in later today to show you some photos of Kate’s dress, but for now we’re off to enjoy being ladies of leisure. Have a great weekend, whatever you’re doing!


      Happy Easter from The Fashion Police!

      Readers, we love you all so much we bought you an Easter Egg. But then we ate it. Whoops. Anyway, this is just a short message to let you know there will be no posts from us today or Monday, because we’ll be too busy eating chocolate. If you have some time off for the Easter break, we hope you have a lovely time, whatever you’re doing it. And if you don’t, well, we hope you have a very nice Friday and Monday anyway. ~ The Fashion Police


      Save our Shoe Site: An important message for Shoeperwoman readers

      Hi, folks, it’s your Chief of Police here. I know many of you are also readers of our sister site, Shoeperwoman, so I’d just like to draw your attention to this post, which details how another company is trying to trademark the Shoeperwoman name and use it for their own sites, thus effectively putting Shoeperwoman out of business.  I’m not going to write too much about this here, because I’ve already talked about this at length on Shoeperwoman, but those of you who were unaware of it might like to click here and read the post: we’d also be very grateful for any links or re-tweets to the post, as this is a huge issue, not just for us, but for…
