Remembering Amy

This time last year, it seemed like the world stood still as news of Amy Winehouse’s untimely death spread. One of the most sensational and recognisable voices of a generation, the music world mourned a modern day rockabilly icon whose legacy was sure to live on. Her music was as unforgettable as her look, unlike most singers, bands and popstars this look was completely her own. From the towering beehive and swooping eyeliner to the satin ballet flats and cinched in mini-dresses, Amy’s style has been revered and replicated. Both Karl Lagerfeld and Jean-Paul Gaultier cited Amy as a muse for their collections which featured beehived models with winged eyeliner on the catwalks. Amy’s fight with her demons has been well documented so I won’t touch on that. I’d rather remember her as the beautiful, talented young woman she was and be thankful of the musical legacy which she left behind.

Here are my favourite Amy looks over the years, from her signature cinched in grey dress and ballet flats to her own line which she designed for Fred Perry. What’s your favourite look?
