Rumor flying around was that Amy Winehouse was set to perform for LVMH owned, Louis Vuitton, during Paris Fashion Week. But as it turned out, she was hired to perform at LVMH subsidiary, Fendi’s Paris flagship store on Avenue Montaigne store on Friday night.
According to ElleUK, the fashion pack were crawling over each other to get an invite. With Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Jessica Alba, Sophia Coppola, Rihanna, Kanye West and Karl Lagerfeld in attendance, why wouldn’t you?
Before Winehouse started performing, she declared “forgive my ignorance, I don’t know anything about fashion.” But she did know to wear something from the people hiring her for the gig – accessorising her D&G dress with a Fendi belt.
Let’s hope that she definitely is not planning to launch a fashion or beauty line then.
No doubt she was handpicked by Lagerfeld himself who was so inspired by her signature look that he recreated her beehive and winged eye liner in his Paris-Londres collection last year.[source]
