Since 1960, Mr. Blackwell has established himself as a celebrity-style critic by annually listing off his top ten worst-dressed women.
Today, he released his 48th Annual Worst-Dressed Women List, with the note: "For those of you who were expecting to see Britney's name adorn the 2007 list, I felt that it was inappropriate at this time to make comment, when her personal life is in such upheaval. I hope 2008 is a better year for her."
And so, without further ado, Mr. Blackwell's top three — do you agree?
1. Victoria Beckham: "Forget the fashion spice — wearing a skirt would suffice! In one skinny-mini monstrosity after another, pouty posh can really wreck-em."
2. Amy Winehouse: "Exploding beehives above . . . tacky polka-dots below . . . she's part '50s car-hop horror."
3. Mary-Kate Olsen: "YIKES! In layers of cut-rate kitsch, Mary-Kate's look is hard to explain. . . . she resembles a tattered toothpick-trapped in a hurricane!"
