Amy Winehouse’s fashion sense has always moved between styles, but who knew it also transcended race, age and the space-time continuum? When told that some people think of her as a style icon, Winehouse replied “I don’t think that’s true. I just dress like … I’m an old black man. Sorry! Like I’m an old Jewish black man. I just dress like it’s still the ’50s.” Oh lordy. Well, at least she said sorry. That makes all of us!
So the question here is, has AmyÃ¢â‚¬Â¦seen her herself recently? Like, in a mirror? Maybe Winhouse was rocking vintage for a while back in her hey day, but most of her recent outfits have more in common with Forever 21 than 1956. And we’re almost positive that the majority of eldery Jewish African-American men aren’t rocking plunging necklines that best highlight their implants, or match their gold hoop earrings to the tattoos peaking through their mesh tank-tops. If we’re wrong, then someone has the most amazing grandpa alive.
According to the interview in Harper’s, Winehouse’s newest venture is a collection with designer Fred Perry, which we can only assume has the skin-tight pencil skirts, revealing v-neck blouses and flirty halter-top dresses that every grandparent loves. When it hits stores, be sure to pick up something for yourself, and a little something for your Pop-pop!
