Richard Blackwell

The New Mr. Blackwell?

The New Mr. Blackwell? all indie

Mr. Blackwell died in October, but political consultant Roger Stone has taken it upon himself to continue the Best Dressed and Worst Dressed tradition.

Who?  I know, I don’t know.  

I guess he’s something of an icon for the Republican party, but apparently quite the fashion plate as well.

The New York Times has taken notice of Stone for his “flamboyant personal style” and “sartorial elegance.”

I’m not sure if Stone would have Blackwell’s blessing on this.  But I have just read a little biographical info on this guy, and I am now fascinated with his Nixon tattoo and perennial suspenders. 

So on his website, The STONEzone, Stone has published his “official list of the best and worst dressed men and women of 2008.”

He also apologizes to American women for popular men’s fashions and notes that “lobbyists are the only elegant men left in America.”

His best-dressed men include Barack Obama, Jay-Z, Al Sharpton, Calvin Klein, and Eliot Spitzer. Best-dressed women include Carla Bruni, Rihanna, Fran Leibowitz, Victoria Beckham, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Sophia Loren, Penelope Cruz, and Sarah Palin.

Worst-dressed people include Simon Cowell, Justin Timberlake, Ashton Kutcher, Johnny Knoxville, Peter Wentz (yes, he calls him Peter), Madonna, Gloria Steinem and Christiane Amanpour.

Mr. Blackwell made a name for himself by issuing criticism of Hollywood fashion faux pas, since 1960.  His annual Worst-Dressed List became its own entity, no matter how serious or redundant readers found it.
