Rumors surfaced in London over the weekend that Amy Winehouse is in talks with Roberto Cavalli to receive a lifetime supply of his clothes to wear at public events and gigs. Now this could very well be a truthful rumor because Winehouse and animal print are friends and lately she's become a bandwagon on which the fashion flock is fighting for space (Karl Lagerfeld created an entire fall collection inspired by her, she performed at the Fendi party in Paris, and the Costume Institute's gala board is considering her to perform at their annual fête). Apparently Posh Spice told Cavalli she thinks Winehouse is a style icon because of her unique look, which prompted the purported talks.
However, we're a bit skeptical of this story for two reasons:
1. The Mirror spelled Cavalli "Cavelli" in its headlines, so clearly accuracy was on the backburner when they cooked that article up.
2. The Mirror and British Vogue used the same quote but can't decide who said it. The Mirror reports:
A source said: "Cavelli [sic] was suitably taken in by what Victoria had to say that he's now determined to get Amy on board."
Recently Posh revealed how much she liked Amy, saying: "She has a real sense of style that I love. She is a fashion icon because she's unique."
But British Vogue reports:
While the report is yet to be confirmed, Cavalli has made no secret of the fact that he digs Winehouse's distinctive look.
"She has a real sense of style that I love," the designer said in a recent interview. "She is a fashion icon because she is unique."
It's not really a surprise that British gossip about Amy Winehouse is such a mess. It kind of goes with her beehive.
