His controversial Amy Winehouse-inspired collection might have been described as selfish
and distasteful but Jean Paul Gaultier has a different story to tell.
According to the French designer, his tribute to the late singer came from a good place
"I was surprised when she died that no one in fashion made an homage to her. Her look
was fabulous, fantastic - it was unique. Usually, actresses and singers need fashion advice.
She naturally had the right make-up, the right earrings - it was a truly a style. She didn't just
pick up one part of that look. And I love her voice, I love everything about her."
