Madonna And Britney Tie For 2nd Worst Dressed Of 2003
Paris Hilton took the top prize as worst dressed woman of 2003 on Mr. Blackwell’s annual list. He dubbed Madonna and Britney Spears the “Kissin Cousins of Couture Crimes” and had them tie at #2. Country singer Shania Twain came in 3rd, she was christened “Calamity Twain” for her “buckled bombs and country-fried kitsch”. None of this is a bad thing, especially according to Christina Aguilera who did not make the list. Christina has said that she loves it when she is on the worst dressed list because those people are always the most interesting. She’s right about that Britney, Madonna, and Paris were 2003’s most talked about stars. Read on for a full list of the top ten.

3. Shania Twain
4. Diane Keaton
5. Jessica Simpson
6. Celine Dion

Madonna Seals Britney Spears’ Fall
January 12, 2004 – Lynn Crosbie of the Globe and Mail sounded off on Britney Spears’ problems after the singer was married and annulled to ring in the new year to childhood friend Jason Alexander. Crosbie says, “The slow yet certain plunge of Britney Spears is difficult to assess. More prudent observers would track this decline through sales figures, yet numbers convey only the starkest of narratives. I believe it was the exact moment she kissed the Madonna-viper (who had courted Spears for a long time, wearing her T-shirts and remarking on her, obsessively) that her descent began. Madonna is infamous for a kind of cruelty that always seems to originate in seduction (Sandra Bernhardt is painfully articulate on this subject), and her affection usually culminates in vicious, public cuts.”
Clark Gets Boost From Madonna’s Backing
January 11, 2004 – Tina Fey joked during the Saturday Night Live Weekend Update last night, “Madonna announced she’s backing Wesley Clark. This should give Clark a much needed boost in the Puerto Rican backup dancer vote.”
Dr. Laura: Britney Spears Trying To ‘Out-Madonna’ Madonna
January 11, 2004 – Conservative radio talk show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger was on ‘Larry King Live’ on Friday to promote her new book and also weigh in on Britney Spears’ wedding to childhood pal Jason Alexander on January 3rd. Asked why Britney made the marriage move, Schlessinger said, “Well, I think she’s trying to outdo Madonna or out-Madonna Madonna. And I just think it’s sad because she’s a young, attractive woman with a lot of talent and, you know, has sacrificed dignity for all the celebrity and the money and all that. And I always find that sad because it’s not a good role model.”
She added, “Interestingly enough, the only facts that I got on that, that I read on the air– because I got a ton of things — everybody was horrified. What I got on the air was from a guy who introduced himself as a gay Jewish guy. And he has a partner for 14 years, and because he respects religion and the extended family with the children, they’ve decided not to marry to preserve what he said was the true calling of marriage, which is the joining of a man and a woman. And although they’d want to be married, he felt religiously this was wrong. OK, along comes Britney Spears. He has all these nieces and nephews who come to him and say, Well, then I guess you can married for — you know, they’re little kids. So you just get married overnight? And so he was raging that here she has this ability to be married, to have this sacrament, and she denigrated it. And I thought that was an interesting juxtaposition of points.” Read more.
Paris always looks so cheap and slutty….I’m not surprised that she made no. 1. Britney and Madonna at number 2 is fitting. I don’t think that Jessica Simpson should be on the list though….she always looks great!
DANG! CHRISTINA DIDN’T MAKE IT! BUT HER STYLE IS GETTING RESPECT AND RECOGNITION. AND I’VE SEEN PEOPLE COPYING IT SO I GUESS THEY LET HER OFF THE HOOK THIS TIME! MAYBE NEXT TIME SHE’LL BE ON IT!
The people on the list really aren’t the worst dressed. It’s a combination of Celebes who have outrageous to alarming fashion sense and ones that had a press filled year. Being on this list actually shows that these Celebes were hot in 2003 and the media couldn’t get enough of them. Christina probably should have made the list but she hardly got any attention Britney got the bulk of it.
Britney has been on worst dressed lists ever since she hit it big. The thing is Christina is no longer on there because people aren’t paying attention to her anymore. Her star is floundering. Christina’s clothes haven’t gotten any better but even worse. She is wearing things to try to get her noticed more than ever before but it’s not working.
Lots of celebs take making these kinds of lists in different ways. They can embrace it (Xtina) Not really care (Xtina) or laugh at it. If it were me, I’d laugh. I’m don’t dress up to prove something to people, its because its what makes ME comfortable. And you can’t blame them, its their jobs, their critics. So you can just take it all in stride. These kinds of lists are also surprising. It just goes to show how truly different people’s tastes are. I like Missy’s style personally and everyone’s been praising her for being different, but Mr. Blackwell puts her on his Worst list.
I think Christina looked so good in that greenish dress she wore when she had the long, black hair. I believe it was for a Versace show, but I’m not sure. Whatever it was, she was hot. I also loved the infamous pink feather dress she wore to the VMAs. She looked really good in that. I’m not a very big fan of the things Britney wears. The only thing I’ve seen her wear that made me think she looked so beautiful and classy was that white ball gown she wore on her ABC In The Zone special while singing Everytime. Everything else has been not so good and she deserves her #2 spot on this list.
