Mr. Blackwell in Philadelphia, 1996

Fashion critic Richard Blackwell, best known for maintaining “Mister Blackwell’s Ten Worst-Dressed Women” list for many years, looks over the crowd near Philadelphia City Hall during a visit in 1996. Blackwell died in 2008.

This was very much a publicity event and not my favorite kind of assignment but I thought it would be fun to look back at those fashions now.
