Even if you were not a fan of her jokes, you cannot deny that she was unapologetic about who she was, and a trailblazer for other female comedians. Joan also brought a much needed sense of fun and playfulness to the too serious fashion industry, and never took things–or herself–too seriously. She was never afraid to speak her mind or give her opinion, which is something we can all admire.
