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"
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
