Jean-Paul Gaultier Paid Tribute to Amy Winehouse by his Couture Collection
Dozens of meters of revealing lace, corsets, big beehive hair and, of course, the iconic pointy bra, surprised the attendants of Jean Paul Gaultier's Spring Couture show.
Many associate Jean-Paul Gaultier‘s collections with Madonna. But the designer’s latest Spring Couture Collection was to pay tribute to another songstress Amy Winehouse, unveiling his spring line that was inspired by the late Amy. Models walked the runway to a soundtrack by the singer, donning her famous beehive hair and fifties-style fashion. The collection mainly consisted of pencil skirts and corset dresses, nipped-in waists and polka dots.
Such well-know models as Andrej Pejic, Karlie Kloss took part in the show. The Serbian-born male model Andrej looked stunning with a blonde beehive and a beaty spot. Earlier in the day he Tweeted:
Nothing and I mean nothing beats couture!”
Amy Winehouse’s unique style was always a reason of fashion critics’ debates. Some loved the way she expressed her sense of style, others thought she’s no classy at all. Amy worked on a line with one of her favourite labels, Fred Perry.
Jean-Paul Gaultier renovated his classic bustier tops to suit Amy’s look.
Back To Black singer Amy Winehouse died in July, 2011 when it was revealed the star had died at her London flat at the age of 27. Though there were reports that she had given up drugs the night before her death, a research in October found that Amy had drunk herself to death, with five-times more alcohol her organism would stand.
