Blackwell’s worst-dressed list

Paris Hilton
This last year (2007) stands out as one of the most disastrous fashion years in recent memory -- as well as being a particularly eye-popping moment in Tinseltown in which several worst-dressed repeat offenders suffered collective meltdowns. There was more melodrama surrounding the Spears clan, Lindsay, Paris and a host of other style-challenged starlets than a double feature of “Baby Jane” and “Valley of the Dolls.” Either it was a comedy of errors or a typhoon of terror. You decide.

Here, in his own words, is Mr. Blackwell’s 48th annual worst-dressed women list. (WireImage)

Fergie

Amy Winehouse
2. Amy Winehouse: Exploding beehives above … tacky polka-dots below … she’s part ‘50s car-hop horror. (Jennifer S. Altman / For The Times)
Victoria Beckham
1. Victoria Beckham: Forget the fashion spice -- wearing a skirt would suffice! In one skinny-mini monstrosity after another, pouty posh can really wreck ‘em.

Britney note: For those of you who were expecting to see Britney’s name adorn the 2007 list, I felt that it was inappropriate at this time to make comment, when her personal life is in such upheaval. I hope 2008 is a better year for her. (Frederick M. Brown / Getty Images)
