Melissa Rivers says her mother Joan Rivers was fearless

Melissa Rivers speaks in public about her mom for the first time since Joan Rivers' death

For the first time since Joan Rivers' death in September, her daughter, took to a podium to pay tribute to her publicly. Melissa Rivers spoke Wednesday at the Hollywood Reporter's Women in Entertainment Breakfast, which featured a video tribute to the late comedian and host of E!'s "Fashion Police." "My mother was fearless, and I don’t mean she didn’t have any fears," Melissa Rivers said. "I mean that although she was only 5-2, she stood tall and walked through them. That is what made her such a brilliant performer. ... She was willing to say what others were thinking and too frightened to admit." [Hollywood Reporter]

While much of the fashion world was paying attention to what Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge wore during her whirlwind trip to New York this week, her husband Prince William was cutting a dapper figure too, and WWD has declared him Man of the Week.

Meanwhile, the duchess' sister, Pippa Middleton, is making a little news of her own. Pippa, widely lauded in Britain for her pert rear end, has weighed in on Kim Kardashian's backside, displayed in all its glory in Paper magazine, in a photo shoot that almost broke the Internet. "I must say that mine -- though it has enjoyed fleeting fame -- is not comparable," Pippa wrote in a column for the Spectator's Christmas special issue. But, she asked, "What is it about this American booty culture? It seems to me to be a form of obsession." [People StyleWatch]
