Jean Paul Gaultier SS2012 Couture "Tribute for Amy Whinehouse

"I think Amy Winehouse was truly a fashion icon," Jean Paul Gaultier said, describing the inspiration for his Spring 2012 couture collection. As tribute, the designer sent out ensembles styled to the hilt in Winehouse signatures: messy beehive hairdos, winged black eyeliner, and sky-high shoes. The looks — named after lyrics from the late singer's songs — were sexy, eclectic, and classic Gaultier.
And do you share the opinion of Amy’s Father stating :

"The family was upset to see those pictures, they were a total shock," Winehouse told The Sun. "We're still grieving for her loss, and we've had a difficult week with the six-month anniversary of Amy's death. To see her image lifted wholesale to sell clothes was a wrench we were not expecting or consulted on. We're proud of her influence on fashion, but find black veils on models smoking cigarettes with a barbershop quartet singing her music in bad taste. It portrays a view of Amy when she was not at her best, and glamorizes some of the more upsetting times in her life. That's upsetting for her family."
Here is the Lovely Couture my lovely Divas,

Personally I love the line and think Gaultier really tried for having a whole line for Amy’s Tribute, so what do think?
Have a lovely weekend

  1. Lovely collection. But I do think he should have consulted the family before showing it to the public - they are still grieving after all.



Have your say, I do appreciate it and will respond to all in due time.
