Fab Flash: Amy Winehouse To Be a Cavalli Girl

Amy Winehouse has become quite the unlikely fashion girl: Karl Lagerfeld was inspired by her look for his Chanel Pre-Fall 2008 collection last December and had her perform at a Fendi store opening last month, Vogue Paris did an editorial influenced by her in its February issue (left), and Marc Jacobs also asked her to perform at a Louis Vuitton party during the recent Paris Fashion Week.

Now, reports are saying that Roberto Cavalli is ready to sign a promotional deal with Amy . . . on recommendation of Victoria Beckham. After Posh confessed she loved Winehouse's style, Cavalli is said to have offered Amy a contract under which she would receive his clothes for free if she wore them at high profile events. What do you think about all this fashion obsession with Amy?

I love this!!! Amy is controversial. That's what sells. I happen to love her style. I think it's great anytime someone is fearless enough to be themselves in public. I love that she doesn't conform to what society thinks she should be. I mean, how many people do things just as bad on the DL? Honestly. Who am I to judge someone else? Ya know? At least she's honest about her life. I love that she and Kat Von D are helping to bring back old Hollywood Glamour in a rebellious interpretation. Lagerfeld and Jacobs are both insanely talented. Who am I to question their choices?

I love the entire look of Amy, I wish to see her more healthy, but she is an icon already, like it or not to the people, she is a new icon!

I love Amy's style, maybe not so much her clothes, but her overall style. She's obviously unique and she's an amazing singer, to boot. I just wish she would stop the drugs and sober up a little. Then I really think people would take her more seriously.

I'm not a fan of Amy's style. She is a mess. I personally would not want to emulate her. Her clothes really aren't that revolutionary and her signature style items - the hair and makeup - are so badly in need of help. With that said, she has a great voice and I do wish her the best. But Amy as a style icon? No, thanks.

its so great to advertise your designs on a cracked-out girl who can't get her head on straight. i dont think she needs to be doing anything except spending months in rehab right now and a designer shouldn't be stupid enough to drag her away from that.

Great, so now we can all aspire to look like crack whores. Super.

I think they are doing this because they are sick of looking at this mess. They think if they give her a bunch of designer clothes, she won't be the cracked out mess that she is.

She's gross. She always looks dirty, fatigued and starving. Yeah, that's who I would want representing my line. Um, no.

Ha! This is hilarious... not because it's Any Winehouse, but because it's Roberto Cavalli who's interested in her. Posh may like her style but she's at the opposite end of the style spectrum from Posh and I can't see Amy suddenly deciding she wants to look like a tanorexic Euro-trash trophy girlfriend, therefore why on earth would she start wearing Cavalli? It makes no sense whatsoever as a pairing.

They may be attracted to her success and 'tragedy'. Her style is out there, she's very talented, she's a tragic mess, and she's skinny. She's also has a very high media profile - mention her name with a fashion house and they're bound to get some media hype. She's got a fascination factor, that's for sure.

They are "models" and not "role models", get over yourselves. Just because they do drugs it doesn't mean you have to do the same!!!!!!

Oh, I love her and her music, but...heroin(drugs in general)chic, again? I'm sure the style will sell even more when she OD's, cause if everyone keep enabling her, that's exactly how she gonna end up.

i can't understand why Posh would love Amy's style. Amy is a mess, a hot mess, like hot garbage, it needs to be thrown out and taken away. she's talented, but she needs to get to a dermotologist that loves her and a power washer to blast her makeup off. Didn't her momma every teach her to wash her face at night?

wow she is only 23?? she's been living a hard life that is for sure and it shows in her face. i don't know that she should be an inspiration or the face of anything right now. she should get well and focus on her music rather than being someone's muse.

I kind of like Amy's music, but I'm not a fan of her look. It's certainly unique, but I don't know...she usually looks like a mess to me.
