"It is true that Rivers, 73, has had a good deal of plastic surgery--a fact that she has readily admitted, mocked and turned into part of her shtick. And there is an unnerving stillness to her face. It has the preternaturally stretched look of someone caught in a wind tunnel. But it is no more gawk-worthy than the gravity-defying fake boobs that dot the Las Vegas landscape, the famous Hollywood faces left expressionless from excessive Botox, and the emaciated coat hangers who set the standard for beauty on Seventh Avenue."--Robin Givhan profiles Joan Rivers before the Emmys

"In the category of gravity-defying breasts, the award goes to Virginia Madsen, who wore a black lace gown with a plunging neckline that revealed perfectly placed, golden orbs."--Robin Givhan at the Emmys (includes two slide shows, one narrated by Givhan)

"What are the back taxes, interest and penalties for failing to report eight hours in a Michael Kors gown, five in Calvin Klein, four in Donna Karan and a full day in a J. Mendel fur back in 2004?"--Robin Givhan after the Emmys
