Poor old Victoria Beckham. She tries so hard to get it right, but according to Mr.Blackwell, who’s just published his latest Worst Dressed List, she continues to get it oh so very wrong. Victoria tops the list, making her officially the worst dressed woman of the year. Here’s the top ten in full, with our comments…
1. Victoria Beckham
You know, I sometimes think that Victoria’s habit of trying too hard (OK, make that WAY too hard) makes her an eary target when it comes to these kinds of lists. It’s all, "Ooh, she thinks she looks good – let’s knock her down!" Sure, Victoria is far from perfect, but there are worst dressed women out there, trust us. Case in point: where’s Britney in this list?
2. Amy Winehouse
I’m not sure it’s quite fair to feauture the mentally-ill on a Worst Dressed List (maybe that accounts for Britney’s non-inclusion?), but that aside, hasn’t Karl Lagerfeld just made Amy his muse? She’s been looking more like a trainwreck with each day that passes, but there’s a part of me that applauds Amy for having her own distinctive style: the beehives, eyeliner and … maybe not the ballet slippers, come to think of it … could all look good. If, you know, they were being worn by a normal person.
3. Mary Kate Olsen
No! She’s like a pretty little doll that you just want to play dress-up with. And she does. The Fashion Police still love her, even although Mr. Blackwell doesn’t.
Well, you know, Fergie does her best. It’s just that her best is often totally batshit.
5. Kelly Clarkson
No arguments here.
6. Eva Green
Our eyes are still bleeding after her pink Dior moment…
7. Avril Lavigne
Remember when Avril briefly got stylish, washed her hair and started wearing grown-up clothes? Didn’t she look nice? Now she’s reverted right back to type with her obnoxious, teen-angst, "lookit me, God, I’m such a rebel" style. A worthy contender for the Worst Dressed list.
8. Jessica Simpson
Jessica was on a downward spriral last year. Unfortunately, she’s still on it.
9. Lindsay Lohan
She could SO have escaped it were it not for those damn leggings…
10. Alison Arngrim
Sorry, but WHO?
What do you think of Mr. Blackwell’s list?
