Joan Rivers will have a red carpet at her funeral in New York City on September 7, Us Weekly reported.
The red carpet, which Joan Rivers’ family and friends will walk upon outside Temple Emanu-El, will then be buried with the star.
An insider told the publication: “A lot of celebrities confirmed.”
In addition, only certain individuals will be allowed to roll it out.
Joan Rivers died on September 4 at the age of 81 after she stopped breathing during an outpatient procedure on her vocal cords and had been hospitalized at Mount Sinai Hospital since August 28.

The comedienne’ plans for her own funeral have resurfaced, proving that a red carpet is what she always wanted when she passed.
In her 2012 book I Hate Everyone…Starting with Me, Joan Rivers wrote: “When I die (and yes, Melissa, that day will come; and yes, Melissa, everything’s in your name,) I want my funeral to be a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action.”
“I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene! 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,” she continued.
“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.”
Kate Middleton made her first red carpet appearance since becoming a mother.
The Duchess of Cambridge beamed as she accompanied husband Prince William to the Tusk foundation gala dinner at The Royal Society in London.
Kate Middleton, 31, wore a glittering floor-length Jenny Packham dress covered in sequins with her brunette hair carefully curled over her shoulders and simple, pretty make-up.
She finished the look with sparkling stiletto heels and diamond jewellery.

Prince William, who wore smart black tie, is a patron of the Tusk charity, and expected to make a speech at the end of the awards ceremony which will be hosted by journalist Kate Silverton.
Last night’s awards aim to celebrate outstanding achievement in the field of African conservation, recognizing the achievements of individuals who are ensuring the future of Africa and bringing the challenges faced by the continent to a global audience.
Just last month, Kate Middleton made her first public appearance since the birth of Prince George when she attended the Anglesey ultra-marathon with Prince William.
Then, Prince William had revealed that Kate was bearing the brunt of the night duties – and that their son was proving to be quite a nocturnal little fellow.
The Duchess revealed that her mother, Carole, – or granny as she called her – had come up to babysit, and told locals that he was “sleeping well”.
Kate Middleton mentioned during the visit she was keen to get “back into shape” after the birth.
Last night’s outing marks the start of a new role for Prince William as he begins a new life outside the military.
Angelina Jolie opted to miss her aunt’s funeral so she could jet to the UK to support Brad Pitt at the premiere of his new movie World War Z, making her first appearance on the red carpet since revealing double mastectomy.
Angelina Jolie, 37, kept to her promise and was one of the big names who walked the special black carpet at the event.
The actress opted to co-ordinate with her man as they both arrived to rapturous claps and screams, both wearing matching black.
Angelina Jolie wore a floorlength Yves St Laurent dress, while Brad Pitt looked dapper in a suit with a casual T-shirt underneath.
Just a few days ago it was revealed Angelina Jolie had chosen to miss her aunt’s funeral as it clashed with the premiere.
Angelina Jolie – who recently revealed she underwent a double mastectomy after she was identified as carrying the BRCA1 cancer gene – lost her aunt Debbie Martin, 61, last week following a battle with breast cancer. The actress said she cannot make the funeral in San Diego on Sunday June 2 because she will be in London.
Debbie Martin’s husband Ron told E! News ahead of the premiere: “We are making the final arrangements for the funeral as we speak. But we expect it to be this Sunday at noon at El Camino Memorial in Sorrento Valley near our home.
“Angelina will be in London on Sunday so she won’t be able to attend but she has been in touch with us and with various other members of the family, which has obviously been lovely and has meant a lot to us.”
And it seems Angelina Jolie is now fighting fit after making the difficult decision to undergo the operation.

Angelina Jolie, who oozed confidence at the bash, said she was “feeling great” as she walked the black carpet with Brad Pitt.
“I’m here for Brad. I’m so proud of him,” she said.
The actress said she was “proud” of the response to her article about cancer preventative surgery.
“If it did some good then I’m pleased,” Angelina Jolie said as she walked into the Empire cinema wearing a floor length Yves. St Laurent black silk gown.
The actress spent twenty minutes signing autographs. She joked: “I’m a director,” as she took cameras from fans and took their photographs and video shots.
One fan handed her a fluffy teddy and later she gave it to Sophie Martinez, aged 4, who promptly burst into tears.
“It’s a nice teddy,” Angelina Jolie told her soothingly.
Sophie Martinez’s parents Douglas and Tatiana, Brazilian students living in Putney, said they were so touched by Angelina Jolie’s gesture towards their daughter.
Jessica Chastain, however, skipped the carpet to attend the film. She and Brad Pitt were in The Tree of Life together.
Brad Pitt told BBC News as he spoke ahead of the screening: “I think it’s pretty much the most intense film you’re going to see all summer.”
The night before, on Saturday, Brad Pitt made an impromptu visit to the first preview screening of World War Z in one of the Empire’s smaller screening auditoriums.
He told the audience: “This has been a long time coming.”
Brad Pitt was clearly referring to the film’s problematic production with costs rumored to be in the two hundred million dollar plus range.
He added: “I’m willing to bet that this is the most intense film you’ve seen all summer.”
Eva Longoria has suffered an extremely embarrassing wardrobe malfunction as she unfortunately revealed far more than she intended to upon screening of Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy Of A Plains Indian) during Cannes Film Festival on Saturday.
Arriving in a breathtaking light green gown, Eva Longoria was merely trying to ascend a flight of stairs on Saturday while avoiding the fast-falling drizzle.
The actress tugged up her hem to avoid getting it wet in the puddles when the wardrobe function occurred as the star was left exposing herself with no underwear on.
Eva Longoria has suffered an extremely embarrassing wardrobe malfunction as she unfortunately revealed far more than she intended to
Eva Longoria, 38, will no doubt be horrified to learn that the humiliating incident was caught on camera.
The former Desperate Housewives star trudged on with the aid of several red carpet staffers and was ultra careful not to step on her trailing gown with her beige high heels.
Her dress wasn’t the only part of her ensemble that was in danger of falling apart.
Eva Longoria’s elaborately coiffed hairdo was in risk of faltering in the foul weather but at least she had some shelter beneath a large unflappable umbrella.
Her perfectly oval-shaped face was heavily made-up too, especially around the eyes, and most know what rain can do to mascara-covered lashes.
Millie Mackintosh was just one of the stars who succumbed to the windy London weather on the red carpet at the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards (BAFTAs) on Sunday night as her black gown with large side split accidentally almost revealed a bit too much.
Millie Mackintosh, 32, posed for photographs obviously feeling confident in the get-up as she pouted up a storm.
The gusts of wind soon left her red-faced as she was forced to stop the Sass and Bide gown flying up to reveal her under garments.

Although she took it in good jest as she laughed and ensured Millie Mackintosh held the dress down in front of the many stunned snappers.
The make-up artist teamed her daring dress with a pair of Christian Louboutin high-heeled sandals and carried a Swarovski clutch.
Millie Mackintosh, who is engaged to marry rapper Professor Green, had spent hours on Sunday getting ready for the appearance.
She shared numerous photos with her online fans on Twitter and Instagram as she sat in the make-up chair.
But Millie Mackintosh was clearly nervous as she prepared to step out of the car and in front of the paparazzi.
She complained: “Loving my hair and make up, can’t believe it’s raining! Here I go… Eeeeek #baftas2013.”
And fast forward a little while and Millie Mackintosh took to Twitter again to comment on the embarrassing scenario: “Wind and rain + a dress with slits = wardrobe malfunction!”
She was soon left smiling once more as Made In Chelsea picked up the gong for Reality and Constructed Factual show.
Reese Witherspoon appeared on the red carpet at Mud premiere in NYC just 48 hours after her arrest for disorderly conduct in Atlanta
Reese Witherspoon appeared on the red carpet at Mud premiere in NYC just 48 hours after her arrest for disorderly conduct in Atlanta, Georgia, over the weekend.
Reese Witherspoon, 37, known for her squeaky clean image, released a statement late Sunday apologizing for her behavior to police that began when her husband, Hollywood agent Jim Toth, was arrested early Friday for DUI.
“Do you know my name?” Reese Witherspoon is quoted as saying in a state trooper’s report.
The actress also said: “You’re about to find out who I am’ and ‘You’re about to be on national news,” according to the report.
Reese Witherspoon’s statement said: “I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said. It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that is no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job.
“The words I used that night definitely do not reflect who I am. I have nothing but respect for the police and I’m very sorry for my behavior.”
Reese Witherspoon said she can’t comment further “out of respect” for the pending case, and her publicist, Meredith O’Sullivan Wasson, offered no other details.
The Oscar-winning actress posed for cameras on the red carpet at the NYC premiere of her film Mud, but did not stop to talk to reporters.
Reese Witherspoon smiled for the cameras as she would under any normal circumstance, coyly perking up the sides of her mouth as she gave seductive glances to anyone she encountered.
She slimmed up her figure in a loose-fitting black mini dress that drew attention to her toned and trim legs.
Reese Witherspoon also drew attention to her new honey brown hair, which she dyed recently as she is working on The Good Lie in Atlanta, Georgia.
Kim Kardashian flattered her pregnant figure in a sexy black dress as she walked the red carpet at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards in Culver City, California on Sunday night.
The Saint Laurent dress elongated her frame with daring batwing sleeves.

Kim Kardashian, 32, also opted for a simple gold necklace and natural make-up that enhanced her pregnancy glow.
The reality star graciously stopped along the red carpet for a chat with Selena Gomez, who also sought out a top spot on the best dressed list in a gold lace Julian McDonald dress dripping with fringe.
Selena Gomez, 20, led the charge among younger stars to step up their fashion game.
Kim Kardashian’s youngest sibling Kylie Jenner showed that she’s got what it takes to make it in the modelling world in a classic bone white pencil skirt and matching crop top.
After she impressed on the red carpet at GLAAD Media Awards last month, June Shannon looked a little disheveled as she sat on the steps in front of her McIntyre, Georgia home, picking her nose and sipping on soft drinks.
June Shannon, 33, seemed to have transformed on recent occasion, impressing fans with her 100lb weight-loss and tasteful black dress at GLAAD Media Awards in New York City.
However, it appears Mama June’s red carpet makeover was only temporary.
After she impressed on the red carpet at GLAAD Media Awards last month, June Shannon looked a little disheveled as she sat on the steps in front of her McIntyre, Georgia home
Honey Boo Boo’s mother was surrounded by her family – including the hit TLC show’s namesake, her daughter Alana – as they filmed new scenes for the series about the pageant princess.
June Shannon was dressed in head-to-toe black, her blonde hair tightened back into a messy ponytail, while Honey Boo Boo hula hooped in the front yard.
While not dissimilar from her appearance on Here Comes Honey Boo Boo reality show, the look was a striking contrast to her red carpet appearance.
Last month, June Shannon, a mother-of-four, revealed that she had lost more than 100 lbs over the past two years as a result of her hectic TV schedule.
June Shannon appeared to have had a style revelation for the GLAAD Media Awards, gliding down the red carpet in a black maxi dress with subtle make-up, manicured nails and coiffed blonde, curly hair.
The makeover was most likely inspired by the family’s new-found fame, as June Shannon is now photographed wherever she goes.
Anne Hathaway’s latest ensemble seemed swamped in heavy material as she stepped out on Saturday evening for the Producers Guild Awards.
Anne Hathaway, 30, turned up at the 24th annual ceremony wearing a frock which was more useful as a tent than figure-framing piece.
The bandeau number featured loud multi-color floral stitching, which consisted of a yellow hue to co-ordinate with her gold heels.
Attached to the back of her bustier upper half was what looked like an extra piece of material from the same fabric which left her billowing behind.
Anne Hathaway did show off her shoulders in the eye-catching number but the shape of the piece did not bring out the best in her slender frame.
The dark-featured actress wore only a slick of pink lipgloss on her plump pout and her short brunette tresses were styled back away from her face.
Anne Hathaway’s latest ensemble seemed swamped in heavy material as she stepped out on Saturday evening for the Producers Guild Awards
Anne Hathaway rubbed shoulders with a host of stars at the prestigious event, where her latest motion picture, Les Miserables, is nominated.
Additionally, producers Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will receive the guild’s highest honor, the David O. Selznick Achievement Award in Theatrical Motion Pictures, honoring careers that have included the films Fargo, Billy Elliot, O Brother Where Art Thou? and Frost/Nixon.
It is not the first time Anne Hathaway has opted for a cape-style feature for her red carpet outfit.
Anne Hathaway was polished in Altuzzara dress and Burberry Prorsum cape at the Les Miserables After Party, held at The Roundhouse in December.
This year Met Costume Institute Gala, held in New York last night, was all about who can sparkle hardest, as the celebrities slip into futuristic fabrics.
Gwyneth Paltrow had no problems, paying tribute to last night’s hostess Muccia in a stunning short and backless lilac-silver dress that was probably the most elegant outfit on the red carpet tonight.
Sparkle seems to work best when given a slant, like Gwyneth Paltrow’s Barbarella minimalism or Sofia Vergara’s sensational Marchesa silver lace column dress.
The color is so subtle it allows the drama of the lace and the sexy shape of the gown to really do the talking, and Sofia Vergara finished off her look with a bright, bright slick of fuchsia pink lipstick which sealed the deal.
In the gold corner, Cameron Diaz was a column of light in a retina-searing Stella McCartney gold dress which she paired, rather cheekily, with the hairstyle made famous in her 1998 smash hit movie, There’s Something About Mary.
And Jessica Alba offers a masterclass in how to really shine, without looking like a gaudy street hoarding.
She added a frisson of Hollywood glamour to her burnished gold Michael Kors dress, with gothic touches such as black nails and a vintage style Roger Vivier‘s Pilgrim Coeur clutch.
It transforms the timeless beauty into a pewter dipped antique goddess, while Mad Men’s Jessica Paré, breathtaking beauty though she is, false foul of an all over large sequin fabric that seemed to drown her gloriously dainty figure.
Camilla Belle in Ralph Lauren worked the trend with a gothic slant, just like Alba, and triumphantly her dark lips stood out on a carpet filled with fashionable peach pouts.

Lana Del Rey, unsurprisingly, also jumped at the chance to mine this fusion of old school glamour and film noir stylings, and debuted darker colored hair with her Joseph Altuzarra outfit which featured a stunning cape.
Carey Mulligan went furthest on this space oddity, in giant sequins by Prada; this dress ran the gamut of metallic hues and perhaps worked best on the newly married beauty’s slender shoulders as the skirt flared out in a Judy Jetson style hoop that looked awkward on the willowy Brit.
Leighton Meester also opted for metallic Marchesa, this time in gold, it was a bold move from the Gossip Girl star but one that aged her as her youth became lost within the archaic gold filigree patterned lace and giant diaphanous ruffles.
Scarlett Johansson filled out her Dolce and Gabbana fishtale dress admirably, but it’s pale color blended into the actress’s skin too softly and she always shines more brightly in rich colors.
Renee Zellweger was a vision in Pucci, an surprise choice for the star who was expected to wear Caroline Herrera, but a masterstroke, as she looked incredible in the dramatic backless black gown which, yes you guessed it, had accents of gold.
Rihanna played it reasonably safe in Tom Ford’s applique crocodile, but her stunning figure proved to be her winning accessory.
Her hair was slicked back to showcase her incredible cheekbones, but that was the same look chosen by Rooney Mara and Gisele Bundchen to heighten their air of Victorian melodrama in detailed Givenchy lace and embellished satin respectively.
Other stars wore their black in a gothic style, which was easily the second most popular trend of the evening.
Cate Blanchett, peerless beauty as always, nailed the look in a ravishing dress by Alexander McQueen that was at both extravagant and strangely minimalist, giving her the air of an elegant raven.
Another black look was sleek, as best personified by Rihanna, but also showcased to great effect by Rosario Dawson in super-sexy Calvin Klein and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley flying the British flag in Burberry.
Emma Roberts, Katharine McPhee and Eva Mendes were good enough to eat in various shades of orange, while the in the minority (for once) ladies in red, Chelsea Clinton, Emma Stone and Milla Jovovich made the most of the scarlet hue.
Mad Men star January Jones put pop into pastel in her fresh yellow dress, while Victoria’s Secret model Candice Swanepoel was a hip shade of blue to Brooke Burke’s slightly soppy take on the color.
Christina Ricci and Lily Collins boldly refused to follow the crowd and wore daring individual gowns.
Christina Ricci donned an incredible number by cult designer Thakoon, that certainly marked her out from the crowd with it’s large bow any celebrity other than Ricci would’ve looked plain ridiculous, but she managed to pull it off, just.
Not so Lily Collins, who just didn’t look glamorous enough in her pretty Victorian-style Valentino gown.
Rolling Stones Mick Jagger and Ronnie Wood wore their rock ‘n’ roll credentials on their suited sleeves, and Jagger had his designer girlfriend L’Wren Scott cheering up his arm, while Wood had theatre producer Sally Humphreys by his side.
Angelina Jolie’s leg was the star of the Oscars, stealing the show with its attention-seeking antics.
But Angelina Jolie’s lithe leg was kept covered up yesterday as the actress snapped right back to motherly duties.
While the actress may be keen to move on from her overexposed limb, the rest of the world isn’t quite as ready to forget.
As Angelina Jolie, 36, was busy shopping with her twins Vivienne and Knox in Beverly Hills, hilarious spoof images of the star were going viral across the net.
Bloggers and artists were having some fun with Photoshop last night, circulating pictures of Angelina Jolie’s now-infamous right leg slotted into well known photographs and artwork and onto unlikely candidates.
Just 24 hours after the ceremony Angelina Jolie “legbombing” was a viral term with that very skinny leg appearing next to Darth Vadar, on the Statue of Liberty and countless others… with side-splitting results.
Even Brad Pitt was given the Photoshop treatment.

The limb also makes a stealth appearance on the cover art of The Beatles Abbey Road album.

Angelina Jolie is yet to comment on the attention her awkward red carpet pose has attracted, instead keeping her head down during her shopping trip with the twins and Brad’s mother Jane.
But countless other A-listers have chucked in their two pennies worth on Angelina Jolie’s now famous pose.
A-lister Joan Rivers branded her a “fool” while others remarked on the scrawniness of her leg.

Comedian Adam Pally seethed: “Angelina Jolie has become of the children she adopts.”
“Angelina Jolie looked like a fool the way she posed,” Joan Rivers told RadarOnline. “She took herself right out of that super star category because you now realize she stands in front of a mirror to figure out [what she looks like].”
The night before, most of the Oscars headlines had been dominated not by the winners, but by Angelina Jolie’s leg-baring antics.
While Angelina Jolie sashayed down the red carpet before the ceremony, stealing the spotlight from Best Actor nominee Pitt with her leg-baring antics, social networking sites were quickly heating up with thousands of comments about “Angie’s right leg”.
As she posed at different points along the red carpet the actress was captured continuously adjusting her Atelier Versace gown to ensure the cameras caught the leg from every angle.

The limb in question quickly became a trending topic on Twitter, with users debating over her enviably trim thigh, the slightly awkward and over-enthusiastic pose, and joking about the emphasis on her right leg in particular.
It wasn’t long before a parody Twitter account called “Angie’s Right Leg” had been set up, declaring: “I’m a leg, get a load of me!” and “You have to admit I’m one hell of a leg!”
So far the account has attracted over 28,000 followers.
And if fans thought they had seen the last of the limb when the awards ceremony commenced, they were certainly wrong.
Perhaps already informed of the hoopla by her people, or simply enjoying the attention, Angelina Jolie continued to pose up a storm when she took to the stage to present an award.
Walking onstage to present the gong for Best Adapted Screenplay, Angelina stopped at the microphone for several seconds with her hand on her hip and THAT leg on full display again.
With wolf whistles and cheering from the audience, Angelina Jolie giggled at the reaction before continuing with the presentation.
But not everybody was as taken with the actress. The screenwriters for The Descendants, who won the award, were quick to mock her as they accepted the award.
While Alexander Payne, who also directed and produced the film, made his speech, fellow screenwriters Nat Faxon and Jim Rash mimicked Angelina Jolie’s pose in an exaggerated fashion, drawing laughs from the audience.
Angelina Jolie’s father Jon Voight defended her antics during an appearance on Daybreak in the UK.
Asked what he thought of her posing, Jon Voight said: “She comes out and does this pose and waits until people get it, it was so great. The audience responded so wonderfully too, with whistles and everything.
“And then she laughed and took it in and went on with her speech. So who knows? You can never tell about these moments that pop up out of a show like this.”
In a video which has now gone viral, actor Zac Efron is seen approaching a fan to greet them, when he accidentally drops a condom on the red carpet at the premiere of his new Dr. Seuss film, The Lorax, at Universal Studios, Hollywood.
Zac efron, 24, swept up the contraceptive immediately, grinning sheepishly and immediately put his sunglasses on as he continued on his way.
The Disney’s High School Musical series star coughed with and held his hand to his mouth, pausing to regroup after the mishap.
The actor’s bashful smile and clear embarrassment served as apology enough- though hopefully any youngsters present might not have recognized what they saw.
Zac Efron’s co-stars Taylor Swift and Danny DeVito were also present at the screening.

There has been talk of a romance between the Zac Efron and the country singer Taylor Swift, though they have denied it.
Taylor Swift told Ellen DeGeneres during a recent appearance on her talk show: “We are not a couple. He’s awesome, we are not a couple though. You hear people get together when they’re shooting movies, co-stars.
“But not like animated co-stars. You know what I’m saying. Oh my god, as we were recording out voiceovers on separate coasts we really connected.”
Zac Efron and Taylor Swift then picked up their guitars and performed a duet as Ellen DeGeneres watched on.
They also talked about what they did for Valentine’s Day.
Taylor Swift described how she had a ‘pathetic single girls party’ where she ate lots of junk food.
And Zac Efron added: “That’s so different than what single guys do. I went to a screening of a film that I did called Liberal Arts. Then cooked some dinner with a friend.”
Rumors began to swirl about Zac Efron and Taylor Swift after they were spotted sharing a very friendly meal last month.
On January 6, Zac efron had a “flirty dinner with the country superstar” at an outdoor corner table at Los Angeles’ Pace.
Us Weekly described how Zac Efron and Taylor Swift were “were deep in conversation and very giggly”, after arriving together in Efron’s Audi.
But they have been flirting for a long time.
Back in 2009, Zac Efron – single since splitting with Vanessa Hudgens in December 2010 – called Taylor Swift a “lovely girl, very beautiful”.
In turn, Taylor Swift, dumped by Jake Gyllenhaal in December 2010, gushed that Zac Efron was an “all-around amazing guy”.
