The Day That Fashion Died

By Wyatt Earp | October 20, 2008

Fashion faux pas master Mr. Blackwell passed away on Sunday.

Ironically, enough, he died wearing a God-awful pink t-shirt and green sweatpants.

LOS ANGELES, California — Mr. Blackwell, the acerbic designer whose annual worst-dressed list skewered the fashion felonies of celebrities from Zsa Zsa Gabor to Britney Spears, has died. He was 86.

Blackwell died Sunday of complications from an intestinal infection, publicist Harlan Boll said.

Blackwell, whose first name was Richard, was a little-known dress designer when he issued his first tongue-in-cheek criticism of Hollywood fashion disasters for 1960 — long before Joan Rivers and others turned such ridicule into a daily affair. (H/TCNN)

Somewhere, Madonna, Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears are laughing. Well, they’re laughing in between breaks of making out with each other.
