The fashion fraternity is saying goodbye to another stalwart.
This time, it’s Mr. Blackwell, famed for his worst-dressed lists.
No doubt some celebs are breathing a sigh of relief.
Mr. Blackwell, the fashion maven whose annual “worst-dressed” list could be the bane of Hollywood celebrities, has died at age 86, according to media reports on Monday.
Richard Blackwell, born Richard Selzer, had been in failing health for some time and in August was reported to be in a coma after a fall at his Los Angeles home.
The Los Angeles Times quoted his publicist Harlan Boll as saying the former actor and fashion designer died on Sunday afternoon in hospital of complications from an intestinal infection.
Blackwell issued his “worst-dressed” list for 48 years and it became watched around the world as much for his caustic quips about the stars’ fashion as for who made the list.
Last year he put British “Spice Girls” singer Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham at the top of his list, saying: “…in one skinny-mini monstrosity after another, pouty ‘Posh’ Beckham can really wreck-em.”
In the No. 2 spot was British soul singer Amy Winehouse and just behind was U.S. actress Mary-Kate Olsen who, he said, “resembles a tattered toothpick trapped in a hurricane.”
For 35 years, Blackwell had his own clothing line. He was also acostume designer who worked with Hollywood stars such as Jayne Mansfield and Jane Russell.

Multi-platinum singer. Movie star. Philanthropist. Entrepreneur. Fashion designer. Beer drinker?
Everyone knows about Jessica Simpson’s daisy dukes body, handbags, shoes and healthy lifestyle.
The all-American beauty and world-renowned entertainer has a passion for working out and making healthy food choices.
And now she’s signed an agreement with a new light beer called Stampede Light Plus.
The beer was started by a fitness expert and former Anheuser-Busch marketing employee, Lawrence Schwartz, and formulated by the late Dr. Joseph Owades (the creator of the first-ever light beer in 1967 — now Miller Lite).
It’s a strange endorsement, I think.
But I guess in the end, it’s all about the paper.
Serena Williams covers Ebony’s July issue.
The mag gives us a sneak-peek of the cover story.
There’s no match for Serena Williams on or off the court. Showing off her stellar brick-house physique, the 5-foot-9 1/2-inch tennis star and Olympic gold-hopeful hung out with EBONY magazine in Malibu, Calif., in an exclusive cover shoot. To keep her body in top condition, Serena indulges in scrumptious salads, which include feta cheese, candied walnuts and strawberries. “It’s too hot in the summer to cook, so I love to grill chicken and fish,” she adds.
“I also love to grill vegetables and serve them chilled.” When asked about her rumored love interest, Common, Serena had this to say, “I think he’s a great guy. He’s obviously a great artist who is timeless and classic. You can’t beat that. But I have to focus on tennis because that’s my goal in life.”
Nothing lifts me out of a bad mood better than a hard workout on my treadmill. It never fails. To us, exercise is nothing short of a miracle. – Cher
