Spring 2012 Couture: Jean Paul Gaultier Remembers Amy Winehouse

Why don’t you come over, Valerie?

While, Amy Winehouse was musically a unique talent with a powerhouse voice that can’t easily be replicated, her style, however, can.

For his S/S 2012 CTR show in Paris, Jean Paul Gaultier did just that.

From her winged eyes, to the beauty mark, to the ciggies, to her beehive — Amy was in da houseee!

The collection’s all around ode to the 1950s-inspired songstress was complete with Fred Perry-esque allusions, eye-popping
colour and strange little oddities befitting a very typical Gaultier.

Our favourite piece definitely had to be the neon pink Auntie Mame meets Sarah Brightman’s Harem chic hooded-dress.

Between it’s heavy embroidery and larger-than-life earrings, we think we found Goddess.

It is like Yves Saint Laurent Provocative Pink lipstick going on a date with Urban Decay’s Gunmetal eyeshadow.

So in the words of Miss Spears, “Gimme more!”


We were also quite enamored with the red and black snake-skin printed, red corset accessorized with a trendy green clutch.

While, we could do without the rest for our personal tastes, the accentuated faux-ruffle cups and small flair at the bottom hem are truly delicious.

But the whole, dead-bride-rebel-with-a-cause-of-Tim-Burton-veil ensemble — yes, we can do without that, thanks.

We love a good wedge.

So a good wedge with a platform on the toe, laced-up around the ankle and curved to perfection?

We’re so loving these babies.

More lace?

Yes, please.

This one simply made us think of Miranda Priestly in a sexy power suit.
