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."
