A Colossal Talent and a Troubled Soul: Amy Winehouse 1983-2011

I was so sad about the death of Amy Winehouse this weekend.  I can not tell you how many times we played Back to Black at RARE vintage but it was A LOT.  She had her own totally unique thing going on with her music and her style.  I loved the skinny girl with the huge beehive, the lined eyes, the boobs pushed up, short shorts and little ballet flats.  But even more then the style was The Voice: moody, knowing, soulful.

Karl Lagerfeld called Amy Winehouse a style icon.  She inspired the December 2007 Chanel Paris-Londres collection.

Addiction is a terrible thing and it has taken a great talent.
