Cher, Jennifer, Cameron Are 'Worst-Dressed'

Mr. Blackwell's annual "Worst-Dressed Women" list is out, and once again Cher's been singled out for her unique way of dressing.

"A million beads and one over-exposed derriere," the self-appointed fashion police officer says of Cher's choice of outerwear. "When it comes to picking the ultimate fashion fiasco, ladies and gentlemen, it's Cher."

Cher, however, wasn't the only recording artist to make the list, which proved to be half music industry notables this year. Celine Dion, referred to as a "profusion of confusion," took second place, followed by Queen Elizabeth, Martha Stewart, and Fiona "kinked and curled Kewpie doll" Apple.

Also on this year's list were teen-pop phenom Britney Spears, Sex in the City's Sarah Jessica Parker, Friends' Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, and country trio the Dixie Chicks.

"Make no mistake, the winners in my Hall of Fashion Shame are picked solely on their stylistic presentation or lack thereof," Blackwell, who has now released his list 40 times, says. "In fact, many of the fashion-challenged women on this year's list are fabulous talents. But when it comes to choosing a wardrobe, they seem to have entered the world of bad taste no exit in sight."

The music industry didn't fare so well on Blackwell's Best-Dressed of 1999 list. In fact, Barbra Streisand was the only recording artist to make the cut. Other celebs deemed fashion-worthy: The Practice's Emmy-winner Camryn Manheim; British actress Helen Mirren; Hollywood royalty Halle Berry, Nicole Kidman, Sophia Loren, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sharon Stone, and Oprah Winfrey; and real royals Princess Caroline of Monaco and Sophie Rhys-Jones
