Yesterday, Mr. Blackwell, the famous creator of worst-dressed lists (you might remember when he zingingly called Madonna the "Bare Bottomed Bore of Babylon"), died at the age of 86. While it's true that in recent years the relevance and sharpness of his lists waned, the guy had an impressive career: Born into poverty and abuse in Brooklyn, he was a teen prostitute, acted alongside Mae West, was a successful fashion designer during the '60s (and notably, was the first to make his dresses in plus sizes), and aside from his list-making was a successful fashion journalist for The Globe, among others. R.I.P., Mr. Blackwell.
