He became best known for his "Best and Worst Dressed" lists, issued annually from 1960 to 2007, and for his Academy Awards fashion reviews. Blackwell worked and lived with his partner Robert Spencer for more than 60 years. He died on October 19, 2008.
Photograph caption dated October 15, 1964 reads "Costume in black and white." The article partially reads "Mr. Blackwell, the California couturier who never bores an audience, either with his clothes or his conversation, managed to come up with new fashion show stoppers when he opened his elegant Windsor Square home to press and buyers." Windsor Square is in the Hancock Park/Greater Wilshire neighborhood of Los Angeles.; See images #001121804 through #001121811 for all photos in this series.
