Amy Winehouse's Family Are Less Than Thrilled About Gaultier's Spring 2012 Tribute To Their Daughter

Well, you can’t win them all. No matter what you do, there seems to be a 10% factor of those who are going to hate on you. Although fans of Amy Winehouse and Jean Paul Gaultier swooned over his gorgeous Spring 2012 Couture show in Paris this week because it was not only stunning but was devoted to the late singer, her family were none to pleased with his choice.

Gallery: Jean Paul Gaultier Made His Spring 2012 Couture Show A Tribute To Amy Winehouse

For his Spring 2012 Couture show in Paris, Jean Paul Gaultier decided to devote much of his energy to creating a tribute to the late Amy Winehouse. This inspiration is evident in the show’s hair, makeup, styling, and even many of the clothes; retro 60s beehives and winged eye liner abounded. Gaultier also put his own modern spin on Winehouse’s style with futuristic shapes and some very on-trend bright hair colors. “I think Amy Winehouse was truly a fashion icon,” Gaultier told WWD. He also said he “felt compelled to celebrate her style because magazines have failed to do so.” Click through for some of his most Winehouse-ian looks. More »

Gallery: (Some Of) Amy Winehouse's Final Collection For Fred Perry

Although we’ve speculated in the past that Amy Winehouse‘s fall 2011 collection was the last one she designed for Fred Perry, it turns out there’s one more. The British fashion house released 14 items from Winehouse’s spring 2012 collection for sale online today to coincide with with the release of her posthumous album Lioness: Hidden Treasures. (The rest will be released closer to, you guessed it, spring 2012.) Much more colorful than the fall collection that came out shortly after her death, these pieces are inspired by “Amy’s love of 50s Americana and art deco Miami” and include lots of pinks, blues, and whimsical prints. The portion of the proceeds that would have gone to Amy will go instead to her posthumous foundation to help young people struggling with addiction. Out of respect for the recently dead, I will present the teaser collection sans my usual rough-and-tumble japery. More »

You all know the backstory so let’s just stay succinct: Amy Winehouse was designing for sporty Brit label Fred Perry, Amy Winehouse passed away in July, this is probably the last collection to have had direct involvement with her.

Pictures Of Amy Winehouse Looking Fantastic

Amy Winehouse died this weekend, and I was a sad to hear some people respond “yes, well, you just had to look at her to know that was coming.” I was sad not from a deep place of “you can’t know what someone is going through just by looking at them.” I was sad from a really shallow place because there were times when, before her battle with drugs, Amy Winehouse looked terrific. I hate to think that people will just remember her looking beat up and blistered. So. Here is Russell Brand’s tribute:

Some famous people today (not Lindsay Lohan) are known for their superb acting skills. Others, like Beyoncé, are famous for some seriously powerful vocal chords. Others, like Megan Fox, are known for being hot, having big lips and marrying strange men (Welcome back to the world, David Austen Green). But when it comes to fashion there is a long history of actors and actresses who are known for one particular trait or fashion choice. And every once in awhile, a celebrity becomes known for something that would be embarrassing on most normal size humans. More »
