Britney, Paris, Lindsay & Mariah Make Blackwell's Worst-Dressed List

01/09/2007 at 01:34 PM ET


For the 47th year, Mr. Blackwell has come out with his biggest offenders — and who were the worst of 2006? BFFs-no-more Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. Of the hard-partying duo, the style arbiter says “Two peas in an over-exposed pod! Style-free and fashion deprived. . .ladies and gentlemen, the ‘SCREAMGIRLS’ have arrived!” Next on his hit list are Camilla Parker-Bowles (“The Duchess of Dowdy”), Lindsay Lohan (“from adorable to deplorable”), Christina Aguilera (“all crass, no class”) and Mariah Carey (“the Queen of Catastrophic Kitsch”). Rounding out the Top Ten Worst are Paula Adbul, Sharon Stone, Tori Spelling, Sandra Oh and Meryl Streep. Meow! But who does Mr. Blackwell think is doing it right? His “Fabulous Fashion Independents for 2006” include our favorites Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie, Beyonce and Katie Holmes. Other stylish stars on his list include Helen Mirren, Barbra Streisand, Nancy Pelosi, Princess Charlotte of Monaco, Heidi Klum and Marcia Cross.

Tell us: Do you agree with Mr. Blackwell? Who do you think deserved to go on his list?

I agree with Jenifer below that Sienna Miller should be on the top 10. I disagree about Christina A. I loooove her new pinup look.

AMEN! Thank god someone is saying it in the press! The best top 3 in my mind, but i agree the olson twins should follow thortly thereafter.

Britney is the worst dresser ever! Paris is bad as well, but I’vee seen her clean up pretty well, which is more than anyone can say about Britney.

I agree with all the others, but what’s wrong with Christina Aguilera’s style? I know that in the past she has made some major fashion mistakes, but she’s looking very beautiful and elegant these days (even making PEOPLE’s best dressed list). If he doesn’t like her as a person that’s one thing; but I thought this was about fashion.

As far as I’m concerned, Paris, Britney, & Lindsey (among many) are the biggest pieces of trash (I’m kindly restraining my language here) of whom I’m sick & damned tired of getting PR to profit the bottom line for many publications like People no matter what & set no positive example for anyone.
Am I one of those pontificating holier than thou people? NO WAY, I detest PC (political correctness) to the nth degree! There’s nothing wrong with a little fun gossip, etc but not to the point it’s made to seem behaviour along these lines is acceptable & not being held accountable for it is OK.
Guess what? It’s NOT OK & EVERYONE ,no matter WHO THEY ARE, & I mean EVERYONE, should be held accountable for their actions. Average ordinary people are, why aren’t these so called two bit overpaid no talent morons being held to the same standards as the rest of us? I don’t want to hear any lame excuses, etc. from anyone on this!
I would like to give these sorry bunch of overpaid no talent morons a few lessons on how to conduct themselves with some common sense. It’s hard to believe to believe to ones closest to them can’t do so, guess they’re overpaid “YES” people preserving their so called paychecks.
Don’t think I can kick some common sense butt in these idiots? TRY ME! I’m originally from the New England area & know how to do it with tact, I just say things as they are quietly & take it from there. I’m no doormat for anyone.
Let’s hope to see some common sense improvement behaviour wise from these so called “celebrities. They do set an example (positive or not) whether they realize it or not, we’ll see if it’s for the better.

I totally agree with the whole list. Britney and Paris need to grow up and start dressing more appropriate. Esspecally Britney, she is a mother of 2 boys and she can dress more appropiately. Mariah needs to start dressing her age.

Karen on

AMEN, Mr. Blackwell……you can add Mariah and the Olson twins to the list, too!

Lin on

I agree for the most part, but I actually think that Christina Aguilera stepped it up this year and has been looking classic and nice.

Mandy on

Katie Holmes as one of the best dressed? Wow! I can’t believe that! I totally agree with Paris and Britey on the worst-dressed list but where are Mary-Kate, Sienna Miller, and Mischa Barton? They all manage to look homeless and destitute while they have millions in the bank!
