mrblackwell2.jpgRichard Blackwell, the Hollywood fashion designer and pundit who was famous for his annual 'Worst Dressed' list, has died, aged 86.

Mr Blackwell named Victoria Beckham the worst dressed woman in the world in his most recent list, and has singled out everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Mariah Carey for criticism since his first list in 1960. Nobody was safe, from British royals and first ladies to pop starlets and a certain 'over-exposed' blonde heiress.

Lest we forget, Blackwell also praised those he thought were sartorially successful. Among recent favourite of his were Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Kate Winslet.

Even Katie Holmes made his best-dressed in 2007. Would she have done so next year? I'm going to go with 'no'.
