I knew immediately that Jean-Paul Gaultier‘s spring 2012 couture collection was a tribute to Amy because I did the math. Behive + eyeliner+”Marilyn” stud = Amy Winehouse.
What a wonderful feast of crazy hives and mish-mash of retro vampy girly excess!
It makes me happy to know that Amy’s influence will live on. Her swagger and her vulnerability, her beautiful voice, her tiny little body supporting all that hair…she will haunt me forever. This collection is an homage that’s right on point, as Amy liked to say of her beehive.
Lindsey Wixson is especially adorable in her purple hive and I can’t get enough of her.

Also, did everyone see the new Karl Lagerfeld stuff at net-a porter this morning? Horrible, right? What is he thinking?! Please let me know if any other runway shows are worth looking at. Right now, I only have eyes for Amy.
