Ex-Spice Girl and new Hollywood personality Victoria Beckham, and troubled soul diva Amy Winehouse topped the Blackwell's 2007 Ten Worst Dressed Women list, the fashion critic "Mr Blackwell" announced Tuesday.
But last year's winner Britney Spears won a reprieve this year, with Blackwell saying it was "inappropriate" to include her "when her personal life is in such upheaval."
Briton Beckham, once known as Posh Spice and now the wife of soccer idol David Beckham, was cited for her steady diet of short skirts, in a year Blackwell called "one of the most disastrous fashion years in recent memory."
"In one skinny-mini monstrosity after another, pouty Posh can really wreck 'em," said Blackwell, who has been publishing his worst-dressed list for nearly a half-century.
Winehouse, who swept the music world with her growling soul and the fashion world with tattoos and a towering beehive hairdo, came in a close second on the list -- despite her own recent "personal upheavals," including highly publicised alcohol and drug problems.
