The Passing of Mr. Blackwell

Longtime Hollywood Fashion Critic, and West Hollywood fixture, Mr. Blackwell passed away at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Sunday.  Mr. Blackwell’s Annual Worst-Dressed List was a staple for those in the music, movie, and political scene for nearly 50 years.  The snarky comments that went along with his critiques have landed on everyone from Queen Elizabeth, Bette Midler, Britney Spears, and once even legendary fashion icon, Jackie O.  Mr. Blackwell is survived by his partner of almost 60 years, Robert Spencer, and requested that in lieu of flowers donations be made to to The ROAR Foundation at shambala.org, The Actors Fund at actorsfund.org or Marriage Equality noonprop8.com

  1. I will miss Mr. Blackwell’s amusing and sarcastic wit and charm. I also would like to congratulate him and his partner on their 60 year loving and committed relationship. 60 years!!! Wow!

  2. This is sad news indeed.

    And 60 years together? What a beautiful thing!
