Amy Winehouse’s Dad Rips Jean Paul Gaultier’s Fashion “Tribute” (PHOTOS)



Amy Winehouse’s father tore into Jean Paul Gaultier for the designer’s Wednesday fashion show, where models emulated the late singer’s signature style.

At the Paris Fashion Week show, Gaultier models walked the runway sporting beehive-style hair, excessive eyeliner and clothing similar to what Winehouse used to wear.


The designer called the show a “tribute” to the late British songstress, but Winehouse’s dad had a different take.

“We don’t support the Jean Paul Galtier collection,” Winehouse’s father Mitch said on Twitter Thursday. “It’s in bad taste.”

Mitch further told The Sun, “To see her image lifted wholesale to sell clothes was a wrench we were not expecting or consulted on.”

“We’re proud of her influence on fashion but find black veils on models, smoking cigarettes with a barbershop quartet singing her music in bad taste,” he added.

Mitch emphasized that he was never contacted about Gaultier’s intentions and suggested a donation to the Amy Winehouse Foundation would’ve been appropriate.

“This is purely about Gaultier making money, and that’s wrong,” he told the paper.

Winehouse was found dead in her London apartment on July 23.
