Well, it finally happened, Blackwell, author of the annual Blackwell’s Worst Dressed List, died yesterday, leaving behind a rich assortment of campy articles and a bunch of traumatized young Hollywood hot chicks, who will now rest easier knowing they will not be the subject of some horribly mean pun directed at them.
As anyone who has read this blog for any period of time knows, I have long been an outspoken critic of Blackwell and everything he stood for- dressing well, double entendre, pseudonyms to name a few.
I have long felt he went over the line in pointing out who was poorly dressed and in my opinion, had turned into a more and more bitter man with each successive list. Why did he die now however? Well, I managed to obtain and early draft of his Worst Dressed List for 2009. Take a look at number 4, I think it’s self explanatory.
4. Skull, dark robe and scythe? The Reaper’s outfit is the opposite of life! Always wearing the same thing is certainly dim, no wonder they call him grim! Jeepers creepers, when it comes to fashion you SHOULD fear the reaper!
Farewell, Blackwell good luck telling the Devil he shouldn’t wear those shoes with those pants. Please find below, WhatSucksBlog moving tribute to Blackwell.
