“It is a very, very foolish thing for a man not to be well dressed” -Lord Chesterton.
What would a new year be without a a style review? Roger Stone gives us his not always so cheeky but fairly spot of review of the celebs we love, hate and almost forgot about except for their fabulous moments and terrible faux pas.

It is that time of year when those of us who paid attention to such things recall the tradition of the late Hollywood designer Mr. Blackwell – who, for nearly 50 years, released an eagerly anticipated annual list that began as a chronicle of the world’s best and worst dressed people. The flamboyant, media-savvy Blackwell spared no one — celebrities, movie stars, athletes, socialites and captains of industry were all under his microscope.
Since Blackwell’s death in 2008, we here at the Stone On Style have proudly picked up the torch, continuing this New Year’s tradition, but in its original “Best/Worst” format. It is a proud pursuit, and inasmuch as it truly is a labor of love, it is also an increasingly difficult endeavor, as the state of dress for the public-at-large continues to slide.
We vigilantly monitor the world of media, entertainment, sports, politics, academia, art and fashion to determine who has style… and who truly doesn’t. As an aside, we do recognize that we write this at a time where more gain notoriety for undressing, rather than dressing. The number of naked selfies from actresses and models that have leaked, drive millions to view the latest celebrity nude.
