Amy Winehouse-Inspired Art, Design and Couture

Amy Winehouse may still be dead, but her image lives on in art and design.  Let me illustrate:

Artist Jason Mercier created a portrait of Amy using five thousand pills and capsules.  It was ready within weeks of her death.

A lighting company is selling a lamp they call the “Amy.”  You can see why.

And now Jean-Paul Gaultier–who use to in tight with Madonna–has been inspired by Amy to create a new line of high-end…something.

    That is great that they are honouring her in that, but somebody needs to give that model a steak and some yams quick! Does anyone find that disgusting or repelling? Fashion models are just sickly skinny and unattractive and I know its not their fault, but this needs to change! Their managers, the media and the general population need to change their image or beauty. As a personal trainer, Kinesiologist, amateur athlete and fitness junky I cannot stand to see people wasting away like that by choice. Sorry Alan for not commenting on the fashion or music, but those pics lead me to that instead.
