But what's he wearing?

New year after new year, few things give me more pleasure than Mr. Blackwell's list of fashion disasters. Apparently His Snideness is ailing, but the ranking this year--his 44th--is his best ever and features turns of phrase so abstract they mean nothing, and everything. Some highlights:

Melanie Griffith: "A botox'd cockatoo in a painting by Dali!"

Celine Dion: "Abe Lincoln in drag?"

And my favorite, which falls quintessentially in the category of I-have-no-idea-what-he-means / I-know-exactly-what-he-means:

Diane Keaton: "Could be Queen Victoria on jury duty!"

I think that on the sad day Mr. Blackwell finally passes into the great catty beyond, Ryan Seacrest should take this gig, too.
