Mr. Blackwell (1922-2008)

Mr. Blackwell was bitchy long before it was popular, and his worst dressed lists -- issued since 1960 -- were must reads even for the stars and wannabes whom he skewered.

Some highlights:
Meryl Streep: "She looks like a gypsy abandoned by a caravan."

Lindsay Lohan: "From adorable to deplorable."

Madonna: "The Bare-Bottomed Bore of Babylon."

Ann Margret: "A Hells Angel escapee who invaded the Ziegfeld Follies on a rainy night."

Camilla Parker-Bowles: "The Duchess of Dowdy."

Bjork: "She dances in the dark — and dresses there, too."
