An offshoot of her time lobbing softball questions at celebs on the red carpet, Rivers spun off a fashion segment from 2002-2014, where she often ripped those same stars apart for what they wore the night before.

Just days before she tragically fell ill, Rivers covered both the MTV Video Music Awards and the Emmys.
