Amy Winehouse is Karl Lagerfelds new museDecember 10th, 2007 - 2:53 pm ICT by admin
London, Dec 10 (ANI): Singer Amy Winehouse, who looks like a walking disaster, seems to have struck it good in the fashion industry.
The Back to Black star with all her problems, has managed to land a job as a muse for one of the most influential fashion designers in the world.
Winehouse was nominated for six Grammy awards last week and with all her drug addiction, bulimia and a jailed hubby, has been chosen by Karl Lagerfeld to be his muse.
Lagerfeld, who has the likes of model Kate Moss and singer Kylie Minogue on speed-dial, compared Amy to sixties French actress Brigitte Bardot.
Shes a style icon, the Sun quoted him as saying.
To prove what he had said about the singer, Karl has based his new fashion line on the tattooed singing star.
At Lagerfelds London show last week, ladies with beehives in every shape and height strutted down the catwalk in Amy-style clothing.
She is a beautiful, gifted artist. And I very much like her hairdo. I took it as an inspiration. Because, in fact, it was also Brigitte Bardots hairdo in the late Fifties and Sixties. And now Amy has made it her own style, he said.
So, when I saw her, I knew it was the right moment. Amy . . . she is the new Brigitte, he concluded.
Seems like all the worshipping done by the music and fashion world has gone to her head. (ANI)
