Now, is it just me, or does the news that Amy Winehouse – who hasn’t been seen in anything other than the tiniest of denim hotpants, ballet flats and vest tops for quite some time now – is to design clothes, make no sense at all?
Specifically, it seems that Amy is to design denim, and is being "courted" by a range of designers, including Calvin Klein, who are desperate to bring her design skills to bear on their jeans. A mysterious "source close to the singer" tells the Daily Star (ah, now it all makes sense):
"Amy is constantly being asked to create her own clothes range and the
main area designers are interested in her working on is denims."
Well, OK, let’s give her the benefit of the doubt and assume this is true. Tell me, though: would you be interested in a denim line designed by Amy Winehouse?
