Desperate Housewife Awarded Worst-Dressed Top Spot

By Arthur Spiegelman, AP<CENTER>http://cdn.news.aol.com/aolnews_photos/0a/00/20050112083609990001</CENTER>

LOS ANGELES (Jan. 11) - "Desperate Housewives" star Nicollette Sheridan, known for short skirts, tight pants and a famously dropped towel in a television ad, was named the worst-dressed woman of 2004 on Tuesday by fashion designer Mr Blackwell.

In his 45th annual no-puns-barred list of what he calls "The Bad, The Sad and The Downright Ugly," Mr Blackwell said the 41-year-old actress, who a plays a suburban vamp in the hit ABC series, is "a taste-free pain."

"Let's crown her the Tacky Temptress of Wisteria Lane!" he added as he placed her at the top of his list, which has become a Hollywood tradition.

Also on this year's list were teen actress Lindsay Lohan, sisters Jessica and Ashlee Simpson and a potpourri of other celebrities: Courtney Love, Paris Hilton, Serena Williams, Britney Spears, Paula Abdul, Meryl Streep and Anna Nicole Smith.

Mr Blackwell said the biggest fashion faux pas of 2004 was Janet Jackson's famed "Wardrobe Malfunction" which involved her briefly baring a breast during the Super Bowl's halftime show.

But he added that her "peekaboo flash was a "total tempest in a teapot as far as I'm concerned. If you really want a stylistic scandal, look no further than the Ten Terrors gracing this year's List."

Sheridan caused her own controversy last year, provoking some 50,000 complaints when, during a promotional spot for "Desperate Housewives" preceding "Monday Night Football," she dropped a towel and jumped, apparently naked, into the arms of receiver Terrell Owens.

Mr Blackwell had no comment on that, possibly because he found the towel tasteful.

<!-- /PARAGRAPH OBJECT -->He gave second spot on his list to teen star Lohan, calling her, "Over-hyped and under-dressed. What's happened to Lindsay? When it comes to fashion she's in a schizophrenic frenzy!"

The singing Simpson sisters tied for third, with Mr Blackwell decrying, "From gaudy to grim to downright frenetic these two prove that bad taste is positively genetic!"

He called singer Courtney Love "a Medusa stuck in a meltdown mode" and named her fourth. Socialite Paris Hilton was fifth: "This is one Hilton that should be closed for renovation."

In sixth place was tennis champ Serena Williams, whom Mr Blackwell said has moved "from the queen of tennis to fatal fashion menace." He was no less unkind to Britney Spears, saying she is "a "clothes encounter of the catastrophic kind."

He dismissed singer Paula Abdul, calling her "a paint by numbers fashion foul." As for Meryl Streep in ninth place, Mr Blackwell said, "Forget 'Lemony Snicket,' Streep packs the fashion punch of Jiminy Cricket!"

The final victim on his list was former Playmate married to a millionaire Anna Nicole Smith, whom Mr Blackwell said looked like "a rag doll trapped in a wind machine."

On the former fashion designer's best-dressed list were Natalie Portman, Nicole Kidman, Barbara Walters, Kate Winslet, Annette Bening, Oprah Winfrey, Scarlett Johansson, Gwen Stefani, Teri Hatcher and Jennifer Garner.

Mr Blackwell's lists are a Hollywood tradition and over the years have poked fun at everyone from Queen Elizabeth to Elizabeth Taylor.

I can't blame him for selecting some of those women. However, I don't think Nicollette should be #1, Britney should be. She was such a repeat offender w/those nasty cut-offs, dreadful slogan t-shirts, trucker hats & bare feet.

I never take him seriously, but the women he selected this year for the worst-dressed were fairly scary.

This dress definitely would make her worst dressed, it says that she needs to try to hard!! I think its just plain tacky! I also agree that Britney is also a bit tacky. I cant understand how women could have so much money and look so bad!

Thats like that awful green dress that JLo wore to an awards show, that was open all the way down her belly. I thought it was hideous, yet so many people wanted it.

YECH!

why people think that dressing like a porn star is sexy...*ralphs*

i suppose that's what happens when you have no talent to rest on - you have to make a big deal out of your body instead.

i totally agree about Britney, tho, and i LOVE her...but the fashion choices she's been making since she had her first kid have just been attrocious.

Less is more!! A slight showing of the skin in that area can be classy sometimes if it's done right, but that dress is downright hideous, lol. You would think with all the people these women have catering to them that they would actually be able to dress better...tsk tsk.

Well, considering this was from last year, I'm sure Britney will top the list this year...

i can never understand why celebrities pick such awful clothing to be seen in.

i mean, don't they have experts in the field that advise them on what to wear??

sometimes, i think that they dress horribly to get free publicity

I think Sienna Miller and Chloe Seveigny (spelling?) are definate repeat offenders, and so is Scarlett Johanssen (spelling? LOL) but they are consecutively named as fashion leaders. What the hell???

I guess what they say is true, money can't buy you class.
