Sad face

Today is a dark day in fashion. The brilliant Richard Blackwell, fashion critic, journalist, tv presenter and author of the famous Worst Dressed List, passed away yesterday aged 86. For those of you not familiar with his work, Blackwell was the man behind an annual list of the 10 worst dressed women which was published in January every year, insulting stars with scathing couplets.

You can find lists from the 2000s here. Amongst frequent offenders were tabloid trainwreck trio Britney Spears (6*), Paris Hilton (4*) and Lindsay Lohan (4*).

[* - number of appearances on the list since 2000. Britney would've probably scored another had she not been spared in 2007 on account of her meltdown.]

Mr Blackwell, we salute you and your fabulous work.
