    Default Britney Spears and Paris Hilton tie for Mr. Blackwell's 'Worst Dressed'

    Spears, Hilton tie for 'Worst Dressed'
    By LINDA DEUTSCH, AP Special Correspondent

    LOS ANGELES - Dubbed "style-free and fashion deprived,"Britney Spears and Paris Hilton tied for the No. 1 spot on Mr. Blackwell's 47th annual "Worst Dressed" list released Tuesday.

    "Two peas in an overexposed pod," Blackwell said of the skimpy attire worn by the two celebutantes he called the "Screamgirls."

    Some of Blackwell's nastiest words were reserved for Camilla Parker-Bowles, a member of the British royal family, who finished No. 2 on the list.

    "The Duchess of Dowdy strikes again," wrote Blackwell. "In feathered hats that were once the rage, she resembles a petrified parakeet from the Jurassic age. A royal wreck."

    Blackwell, no longer an active designer but still an acid-tongued critic of celebrity fashion, aimed his poison pen at Hollywood, with young entertainers dominating the list.

    At No. 3 was actress Lindsay Lohan, scolded by Blackwell for turning "from adorable to deplorable."

    Christina Aguilera was also in Blackwell's fashion hall of shame. He called her a "dazzling singer" but added that she "puts good taste through the wardrobe wringer. All crass and no class."

    He referred to Mariah Carey as "Mariah the fashion pariah ... the queen of catastrophic kitsch," and "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul as "a fallen fashion idol."

    He said actress Sharon Stone resembles "an over-the-hill Cruella DeVille," and Tori Spelling embodies "down and out in Beverly Hills."

    "Grey's Anatomy" star Sandra Oh was faulted for too many beads and bangles. "She's layered lunacy from head to toe," Blackwell said.

    Meryl Streep, who starred in the fashion-themed movie, "The Devil Wears Prada," came in at No. 10 on the annual dis-list.

    "From Streep you could weep," Blackwell said. "Her beauty of a career cannot be denied, but that beast of a wardrobe is pure mother of the bride."

    On a kinder note, Blackwell offered his 10 "fabulous fashion independents" — actresses Kate Winslet, Angelina Jolie and Helen Mirren, singers Barbra Streisand and Beyonce, California Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Princess Charlotte of Monaco, model Heidi Klum and actresses Katie Holmes and Marcia Cross.

    God, I love Helen Mirren.

    Weren't TweedleDum and TweedleDee on the top of his worst dressed list last year too?
    Baby, by the time you have kids and they're in school, no one will care about you.

    Angelina Jolie is a terrible dresser. She wears virtually the same thing all the time in black and very rarely, in white.

    Britney should have walked away with the title, hands down. Paris CAN dress ok, when she was hanging out with Britney, she looked a hundred times better. Britney is a disaster.

    I'm surprised Mary-Kate Olsen didn't make the list.

    Britney deserves the worst dressed title way more than Paris in 2006.

    ^Absolutely - Paris cleans up nicely, when she wants to. Britney wouldn't even know how to begin.

    I think Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren, Angelina Jolie (she chooses great, interesting cuts - way more stylish than blaring colour) and Marcia Cross all deserve their sots on the best-dressed list; I really can't see what Katie Holmes is doing there, though, and Beyoncé is a very uneven dresser - sometimes she looks fantastic, sometimes disastrous...

    That's what I thought, too!
    And Paris doesn't always wear ugly clothes: there are worse dressers I believe.

    He's hilarious. He should be a comedian, or at least write for comedians!

    She would have been an excellent choice, though.
