Mr. Blackwell Off To The Great Fashion Snarkfest In The Sky

October 20th, 2008 // 2 Comments

Mr. Blackwell, the man known for his usually rhyming yearly worst-dressed lists, passed away on Sunday. He succumbed to complications from an intestinal infection. Blackwell was known for his list which put female celebs on fashion blast and said things like “Renee Zellweger looks like a painted pumpkin on a pogo stick.” The man deserves a statue. A former actor and designer, he began his global fashion outlook in 1960. He also had the best title for a memoir ever – From Rags to Bitches. So hot. Godspeed, o captain, my captain.

    Sorry he is gone.. but it looks like he should have been on his own list of worst dressed… he was a horrible dresser. Suprised that nobody ever told him that when he was alive.
