For the 47th year, Mr. Blackwell has come out with his list of Hollywood’s biggest fashion offenders for 2006. At the top of the list are ex-BFFs Paris Hilton and Britney Spears whom Blackwell describes as “Two peas in an over-exposed pod! Style-free and fashion deprived…ladies and gentlemen, the ‘SCREAMGIRLS’ have arrived!” Fellow underwear hater Lindsay Lohan also made the cut (“from adorable to deplorable”) as did Christina Aguilera (“all crass, no class”) and Mariah Carey (“the Queen of Catastrophic Kitsch”). Rounding out the Top Ten Worst are Paula Adbul, Camilla Parker-Bowles, Sharon Stone, Tori Spelling, Sandra Oh and Meryl Streep.
Mr. Blackwell gives praise to “Fabulous Fashion Independents for 2006” including Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie, Beyonce and Katie Holmes. Other stylish stars on his list include Helen Mirren, Barbra Streisand, Nancy Pelosi, Princess Charlotte of Monaco, Heidi Klum and Marcia Cross.
We think he may have been a bit harsh on Christina, whose retro-inspired style choices are a tremendous improvement over her former “Dirrty” days. Otherwise, we couldn’t agree more.
What do you think of Mr. Blackwell’s picks?
