The fashion legend behind nearly five decades of annual worst-dressed lists, Richard Blackwell, died this weekend. Mr Blackwell was renowned for his scathing remarks on A-list fashion in his worst-dressed list - launched as an antidote to the as-he-saw them inflated best-dressed lists. Amy Winehouse, who featured on the 2007 worst-dressed list, was ‘part '50s car-hop horror', Mary-Kate Olsen ‘a tattered toothpick trapped in a hurricane.' The announcement of the list was the moment A-listers must have hated but the public (yep, including us!) just adored. So in celebration of his life - and wit - here's his last worst-dressed list, including some priceless comments. Check them out and rate them yourself below.
Worst-dressed list fashion legend dies
“Forget the fashion spice - wearing a skirt would suffice! In one skinny-mini monstrosity after another, pouty posh can really wreck-em.”
“Exploding beehives above…tacky polka-dots below… she’s part 50’s car-hop horror.”
“YIKES! In layers of cut-rate kitsch, Mary Kate’s look is hard to explain… she resembles a tattered toothpick-trapped in a hurricane!”
“Lindsay the fashion frenzy strikes again! Lohan takes fashion to a new low.”
“Little Nellie of the prairie, looks like a 1940’s fashion editor for the Farmers Almanac.”
"Stuck in neon nightmares not fit for the sane. Fashion this loud could give Bond a migraine! A profusion of confusion from toes to nose!”
"Another style-free 'Fergie' in fashion's hall of shame? Yes, when it comes to couture chaos, guess it's all in a name!"
“Forget the Cowboys. In prom queen screams, can it get any worse? She’s a global fashion curse!”
"Her heavenly voice soars above the rest. . . but those belly-baring bombs are hellish at best! She may be the queen of 'Pro-Active' — but that wardrobe looks downright radioactive!"
