Mr. Blackwell, who was known for issuing his annual "Worst Dressed List" and for nothing else, has passed away at the age of 86. Born Richard Sylvan Selzer, he had a brief acting career before turning to fashion design. In 1960, he came up with the idea of his list and it proved to be a great publicity-getter...which, of course, was the whole point of it.We had a few encounters with him back when TLS won the GLAAD Media Award where he prounounced us "fashion perfect."
Obviously, he didn't look at my worn out shoes.
