Sarah Silverman Ruins All the Clothes Designers Send Her

Sarah Silverman signed her book The Bedwetter at the M.A.C. store last night, and we got her thoughts on fashion. "I'm sort of embarrassed that I dress like a sloppy Jewy dyke," she explained, naturally. "But not just any dyke, a top. I love looking at fashion magazines like InStyle and Elle. I could look at pictures of runways all day. That stuff just doesn't translate on my body. I usually ruin everything designers lend to me." Has she ruined any high-fashion gifts in particular? "For the Emmys, I wore Badgley Mischka. They said they would make it however I wanted it to be. Big mistake. We tweaked it with the tailor because I was in L.A. and they were in New York. I ended up looking like a big blueberry Ren Faire something, but I personally loved it. They were sent a picture of it before the Emmys and after they saw it they asked to have their name removed. I was like 'Okay, fine, I'll give the credit to the tailor.' But the tailor was like, 'Oh, please don't.'"

After signing her book, Silverman performed a stand-up act that included a song in which she explained that fashion divas are actually just "cunts!" Did this fly with the makeup-loving audience? "Look, I am not a model for M.A.C. makeup or anything," she told us. "To be honest, I am usually afraid of fashion-y stuff. I am surprised at how nice they were. Fashion people tend to be colder because they are probably starving. I kept looking over to the side and checking, wondering, Am I going to get paid for this still? It could be a total abortion still. I don't want to piss off the clients or anybody, but I think it worked out okay. Look, I write about things I seriously in real life think about and then I make it obnoxious. I'm just trying to make it funny without being a total asshole. When I am serious for real I am not really funny."
