Mr. Blackwell Dies, Worst-Dressed Stars Secretly Relieved

Mr. Blackwell, the 86-year-old fashion critic who trashed A-List celebrities and their ridiculous red-carpet getups, died yesterday of an intestinal infection. His name was synonymous with his annual Worst-Dressed List, which was notorious for cruelly mocking the failed fashion choices of Hollywood’s biggest names. Some of our favorite criticisms include:

  • Mary-Kate Olsen: “She resembles a tattered toothpick trapped in a hurricane.”
  • Christina Aguilera: “Is she a boring and body-baring bungle — or just auditioning for ‘Sheena, Queen of the Jungle?’”
  • Mariah Carey: “Shrink-wrapped cheesecake.”

Today we remember Mr. Blackwell for his hard work and innovation in the field of crushing celebrity egos. He will be sorely missed (by everyone but the stars).
