Fashion Critic Mr. Blackwell Dies At 86

Fab Flash: Rest In Peace Mr. Blackwell

Cheeky fashion critic, Mr. Blackwell, suffered from an intestinal infection and has passed at the age of 86. Known for his annual worst-dressed list, Mr. Blackwell taunted some of Hollywood's best for their questionable taste in clothes.

"I merely said out loud what others were whispering. It's not my intention to hurt the feelings of these people. It's to put down the clothing they're wearing," said Mr. Blackwell in a past interview.

Mr. Blackwell, born Richard Sylvan Selzer, issued his first celebrity fashion critique in 1960 and continued until his death. His grandest moments also included hosting his own show Mr. Blackwell Presents in 1968 and designing his own clothing line. Mr. Blackwell was a fun and gregarious addition to the industry and will always be remembered.
