Joan Rivers says McDormand's fashion violation was the pits.

Joan Rivers took on the buzzed-about Tony night fashion of winner Frances McDormand on her weekly E! show Fashion Police, naming the denim-and-stripes get-up the worst fashion violation of the week. 

"The invitation must have said, 'Wear whatever the hell you feel like,'" Rivers joked. "When I look at that picture, I feel like Justin Bieber looking at a vagina for the first time [because] I don't even know where to start. It's awful!"

Fashion Police panelist Kelly Osbourne defended McDormand's bold choice, saying "I have so much respect for her," while fellow show regular George Kotsiopoulos pointed out that the outfit was actually a repeat violation. McDormand sported the same dress (minus the denim jacket) on the red carpet at the 2008 Venice Film Festival.
