Rachel Bloom is ready to “ruin” red carpet fashion with comedian Adam Conover.
The Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star joins Conover for the mid-season premiere of Adam Ruins Everything, which finds the pair debunking red carpet fashion myths. The comedy show, aimed at revealing hidden (and sometimes unwanted) truths about the world, returns to truTV with new episodes on Aug. 23.
In an exclusive clip from the episode, titled “Adam Ruins Hollywood,” Bloom reveals the truth about celebrities’ red carpet transformations. From the branding and promotion behind each designer look — hilariously compared to being a sponsored NASCAR driver — to ridiculous “elbow cams” on the red carpet, Bloom and Conover offer a refreshing, laugh-out-loud critique. The episode also features Ariana Madix (Vanderpump Rules).
Bloom’s guest spot on Adam Ruins Everything was perhaps inspired by her own red carpet critics. In April, the Golden Globe winner responded to a fashion blog that made fun of her look at the East West Players 50th Anniversary Visionary Awards. “Whenever a celebrity is at an event or on TV, chances are, they have been dressed, styled and made up by EXPERTS,” Bloom wrote at the time. “It’s all an illusion. A super fun illusion that elevates style and beauty to an artistic level, but an illusion at that. If celebrities truly dressed/made up themselves, I feel like very few would be on a best dressed list.”
Check out the full clip above, and watch the mid-season premiere of Adam Ruins Everything on Tuesday, Aug. 23 at 10 p.m. ET on truTV. Look out for Adam Conover on his Adam Ruins Everything Live! 15-city tour, kicking off Sept. 13 in Seattle.
