Winehouse earns £500,000 for fashion gig


Amy Winehouse is to earn £500,000 to sing at Paris Fashion Week, according to The Sun.

The singer, who is in talks to launch her own clothing range, has flown to France for a one-off gig at Louis Vuitton’s show.

Karl Lagerfeld has based a new fashion line on Winehouse, which he unveiled at London Fashion Week earlier this month.

However, she was voted the worst dressed star of 2007 at last night’s NME Awards.

The 24-year-old was spotted moving out of her London flat yesterday.

Amy Winehouse to get own clothing line

BACK TO BLACK singer AMY WINEHOUSE is reportedly considering launching a cosmetics and clothing line inspired by own sense of style.

The often-troubled star is rumoured to be aiming to capitalise upon her success and unique image, enabling fans to copy her style.

According to the Sun, a friend of the GRAMMY-winning artist, said that AMY has a “distinctive look”.

“She wants to bring out a range of cosmetics and fashion products. There could be hairspray, head scarves, liquid eyeliner, perfume,” they explained.

Another source within the fashion industry told the newspaper that they expected the products to sell well in the capital.

Recently appearing with producer MARK RONSON at the BRIT AWARDS, AMY took home five GRAMMY AWARDS earlier this year.

Amy takes award to jail

Amy Winehouse is giving one of her Grammy Awards to her imprisoned husband.

The troubled singer – who won five prizes at the prestigious US music ceremony on Sunday (10.02.08) – wants Blake Fielder-Civil to display the trophy in his prison cell as a symbol of their love.

A source said: “Amy is planning to give Blake one of her beloved Grammy Awards to prove how much she loves him.”

Prison guards at London’s Pentonville Prison will check the golden
gramophone-shaped prize thoroughly to make sure there is nothing hidden inside.

Security must also declare the statue can’t be used as an offensive weapon. Amy dedicated one of her five awards to Blake – who is currently awaiting trial on charges of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice – on Sunday.

The ‘Rehab’ star – who performed at the ceremony from London via a satellite link due to problems with her getting a US visa – said: “This is for my mum, my dad and my Blake, my Blake incarcerated.”
