Joan Rivers' funeral is getting the red carpet treatment, just like the comedienne wanted it.
Rivers, who revolutionized red carpets with the now-routine "Who are you wearing?", detailed her expectations for a extravagant funeral in her 2012 book, I Hate Everyone... Starting with Me.
"I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene!" Rivers wrote. "I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don't want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don't want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing 'Mr. Lonely.' I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyonce's."
The legendary pioneer passed away Thursday at the age of 81. She had been hospitalized a week prior after she stopped breathing during a surgical procedure on her vocal cords and had been on life support since.
"My mother's greatest joy in life was to make people laugh," Rivers' daughter, Melissa, said in a statement Thursday. "Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon."
