My sympathies go out to the family and friends of
, who sadly passed away on the 23rd July 2011. Although her death sadly may not come as a surprise to some due to her highly destructive lifestyle and terrible addiction, she undoubtly will be remembered, hopefully for her unique sound and style. Karl Lagerfeld described her as a 'style icon' and 'the dark Bridget Bardot', using her as inspiration for Chanel's Paris-Londres Maison Art collection fashion show in 2007, where the models wore beehives and exaggerated eyeliner (below).
Shoe designer Jonathan Kelsey designed the Amy Winehouse' shoe with the singer-songwriter in mind. Amy also collaborated with Fred Perry last year to create a collection of gingham check, polo shirts and bodycon skirts and dresses. R.I.P
Amy Winehouse was sucha beautiful, talented, loving & passionate person. The fact that she gave up & left leaves me with nothing but desolation, and loss of hope for the future. She comforted me; just as Katie Price, Noel Gallagher, Bridget Bardot, Russell Brand also do. But she.. she was different, and she was hurting. The same as me; I heard her say 'the more insecure I get, the bigger my beehive becomes', I totally understand that - I've been there for fucks sake! I don;t think anyone else on this planet would ever say that - yet she did, and it made me feel like I wasn't alone. It scares me that shes gone, because it makes me feel even more alone. The people who aren;t afraid to be different, to shake up society a bit - they all get pushed out in the end. I loved her so so much, and I feel for her family at a time like this - I can;t even comtemplate what they;re going through... but I don';t know them. To be selfishly honest; I fear for myself, and anyone else who feels the same as I.
Amy Winehouse was messed up - and its easy to have an impression of someone like that as a bad person. But she was not a criminal. She was not a monster. She was not a malcious person. She was a girl, she was a 27year old girl who loved writing music and performing her songs. She should be not dehumanised. I can say that I have experienced a tiny bit of the dehumanization she went through, when I had rumours going around about me being malicious, evil, criminal. I couldn;t even cope with a fraction of it, So please, I don;t have any interest in doing that. I just wanted to let you know how much she actually meant to me. And so many other people, she was beautiful. Full of passion. So much to give to the world. And she gave me a helluva lot.
