For the second year in a row, Mr. Blackwell has magnanimously found room on his 34th annual Worst Dressed list for actress Glenn Close – this time as No. 1.

“A modern-day Medusa wrapped in a Hefty bag,” sniffed Blackwell yesterday of Close, who was third in ’93.

The other fashion-flawed:

Julia Roberts: “Let’s be blunt about the barefoot bride. The new Mrs. Lovett tells fashion to … shove it.”

– Diana Ross: “She looks like a Martian meter maid, starring in a can-can revue.”

Rosie Perez: “A fanny-flaunting fiasco.”

– Susan Sarandon: “A word of warning to peekaboo Sue: In fashions this fatal, the joke’s on you.”

La Toya Jackson: “A tacky tragedy from the Zombie Zone.”

– Holly Hunter: “A frumpy, dumpy dirge.”

– Rosie O’Donnell: “A fashion strikeout from toes to nose.”

– Tanya Tucker: “A tornado trapped at a truck stop.”

– Daryl Hannah: “She’s a dowdy dishrag with a bad case of the grunge.”

On the favored side were First Lady Hillary Clinton, who headed the list of “Fabulous Fashion Independents.” The others: Princess Diana, Maya Angelou, Connie Chung, Janet Jackson, Bette Midler, Michelle Pfeiffer, RuPaul, Cindy Crawford and Kathie Lee Gifford.
