Thoughts on Amy Winehouse producing her own fashion and make-up line: 1. There are some people - Vivienne Westwood, Mary-Kate Olsen, Anna Wintour, in this case Amy Winehouse - that we love to look at, but don't actually want to look like. 2. We could maybe like the clothes, even though we're pretty sure we can buy them now at H&M. But make-up? Seriously? 3. As intern Brett so eloquently asked, "What is it with famous girls thinking they can try out whatever 'career' they want?" 4. The line will apparently include hairspray. Will it come with an instruction manual on beehive styling, too? Can't wait.

Amy Winehouse's Dad: Jean-Paul Gaultier Couture Show Was "In Bad Taste"
With beehived hair, winged eyeliner, and a barbershop quartet singing her tunes, Jean Paul Gaultier's Haute Couture show was an obvious homage to the late Amy Winehouse. Only not everyone thought it was such an honor: The songstress' dad, Mitch Winehouse, has spoken out against the show saying it was "in bad taste," the Associated Press is reporting. "We're still grieving for her loss, and we've had a difficult week with the six month anniversary of Amy's death," Winehouse told UK paper The Sun (as quoted in the AP). "To see her image lifted wholesale to sell clothes was a wrench we were not expecting or consulted on."
Jean Paul Gaultier Was Surprised No One Else Made an Amy Winehouse Collection
As you may recall, Jean Paul Gaultier's spring/summer 2012 haute couture collection was a highly produced homage to the late Amy Winehouse. There was a barbershop quartet singing her music while models traipsed down the aisle with beehive 'dos, heavy eyeliner, cigarettes, and form-fitting clothes that recalled the British talent, who had passed away only six months prior. It was a little uncomfortable, especially when Winehouse's father, who was understandably still grieving, spoke out against the show, saying it was "in bad taste" and "an insult" and "To see her image lifted wholesale to sell clothes was a wrench we were not expecting or consulted on.” Gaultier hasn't said much about it publicly until now and it doesn't sound like he has any regrets.
Amy Winehouse's Soon-to-Be-Auctioned Dresses Stolen From Her London Home
Well this is just terrible. According to Amy Winehouse's father Mitch, as told to The Sun, two dresses belonging to the late singer--due to be auctioned for her namesake charity later this year in New York--have been stolen from her house in Camden, North London, where she died last July.
