Mum: 'you'll never guess who just walked into Reiss [clothes store, Cambridge]. AMY WINEHOUSE!'
Im not much of a celebrity fan. I suppose its because I've never come into contact with many before. But when i walked into Reiss to see a petite beehive clad Amy Winehouse, i'll admit i was thrilled. She was wearing a tight pair of skinny jeans and high top trainers and was accompanied by a bodyguard. This was before her whole drug-use trauma, and seemed perfectly happy browsing the rails.
Peronally, i've never really liked her style that much. Her baggy jeans, trainers and tattoos are all a bit manly for my liking. I'll admit she does have talent and i am very pleased she is back from rehab and is on the mend. But really, shes not my cup of tea style-wise.
However, she has been influenced and been linked to the fashion world very strongly this season. She is known as Karl LAgerfeld's muse and inspired many catwalk beauty looks with her winged eyes and bouffant hair. She performed at Fendi's store opening and at many of the major music events.
And when Paris Vogue did a fashion spread inspired by her in the Febuary issue, i'm going to have to bite the bullet and admit that i loved it. The model [Isabelli Fontana] captured Amy's often bizzare behaviour well, and the shoot really reflects her personality and dress sense.
