JPG's Amy Winehouse Tribute.

Beehive wigs, rehab-look and the iconic makeup were included.

For the Haute Couture S/S 2012, Jean Paul Gaultier decided to do a Amy Winehouse inspired collection. A tribute to the late singer. Fusing his satirical designs and Amy's retro style, the collection was bound to be entertaining - to me at least. The whole runway show was Amy Winehouse themed to the 'mole', literally. 

As usual, on the shoe lookout! 
All outfits were envisioned to be what the Amy would wear. Interesting. Most of the photos I've seen of her look like she tumbled out of a beer keg. She did have style though, in a trashy sort of way which what this collection meant to capture! 

Some criticized that the wigs took the attention away from the outfit or it was too costume-y but honestly, how would you really know it is an Amy Winehouse inspired collection without the wigs? I like it. Besides, it really plays to character.
