Amy Winehouse's style – a modern-day take on the pinup girls of eras gone – has, even considering her relatively career, entered the realm of iconic. Her garment choices often consisted of a solid tank top – either white or black – paired with short denim cut-offs or skinny jeans, and a pair of white ballet flats or spaghetti strap – or strapless – mini-dresses, often belted and always with her bra straps on display.
Complete with retro-inspired tattoos, ever-present winged eyeliner, bold lips, hoop earrings, and her trademark beehive hairdo, Winehouse's look was simultaneously glamorous and rough around the edges, creating nothing short of a compelling aesthetic to complement her truly powerful voice.
And the fashion industry has taken notice. In 2007, the year Winehouse won a Grammy for Record of the Year, Karl Lagerfeld cited Winehouse as an inspiration for Chanel's collection. Jean Paul Gautier's 2012 collection also looked to Winehouse for inspiration. The collections join a range of editorials from Vogue Paris to Love Magazine that portrayed Winehouse's impeccable style - certainly not perfect - but definitely all her own.
