Some of fashion critic Mr. Blackwell's meaner celebrity put-downs:
— Cameron Diaz: "Looks like she was dressed by a colorblind circus clown, and when it comes to fashion, it's chaos when Cameron's back in town."
— Madonna: "From Ghetto Glam to Rhinestone Cowgirl to Mrs. Guy Ritchie. Any way you label it, she's still just kitschy, kitschy, kitschy."
— Christina Aguilera: "Is she a boring and body-baring bungle — or just auditioning for 'Sheena, Queen of the Jungle?'"
— Courtney Love: "When push comes to shove, no one's fashion is tackier and wackier than funky, punky Love!"
— Mary Kate Olsen: "She resembles a tattered toothpick trapped in a hurricane."
— The Dixie Chicks: "They look like a trio of truck-stop fashion tragedies trapped in a typhoon."
— Rene Zellweger: "A painted pumpkin on a pogo stick."
— Ann-Margret: "Marlon Brando in a g-string."
— Bjork: "She dances in the dark — and dresses there, too."
— Martha Stewart: "She dresses like the centerfold for the Farmer's Almanac."
— Sharon Stone: "She looks like an over-the-hill Cruella de Ville."
— Elizabeth Taylor: "Looks like two small boys fighting under a mink blanket."
— Amy Winehouse: "Exploding beehives above, tacky polka-dots below, she's part 50's carhop horror."
— Cher: "A million beads and one overexposed derriere."
— Sarah Jessica Parker: "From 'Sex and the City' Sarah's fashions are a mix-and-match pity."
— Mariah Carey: "Shrink-wrapped cheesecake."
— Victoria "Posh Spice" Beckham: "Forget the fashion spice — wearing a skirt would suffice! In one skinny-mini monstrosity after another, pouty Posh can really wreck-em."
— Queen Elizabeth II: "Was she the palace Christmas tree or just a royal clown?
— Camilla Parker-Bowles: "In feathered hats that were once the rage, she resembles a petrified parakeet from the Jurassic age."
— Dennis Rodman (for his drag outfits): "The Fashion Menace may be the Bad Boy of basketball — but in fishnet and feathers he's a unisex wreck."
