According to Yahoo News, the acerbic, acid-tongued fashion critic Mr. Blackwell (and Ed McMahon look-alike) who is best known for his annual worst-dressed lists, has been hospitalized with a serious illness.
Richard Blackwell, 85, has been in the hospital and unconscious since Tuesday, his partner, Robert Spencer, said from his home in Los Angeles. Ouch, this doesn’t look good. God’s speed! We need more fashion critics to tell it like it really is!
