Inspiration: Amy Winehouse


I remember the first time I saw Amy Winehouse. It was her performance on the Jay Leno show back in 2006. She immediately caught my eye with her unique jazzy voice, beehive hair so high it could touch heaven, and her style. Her style is what modern day pinups can relate to. Amy’s style is a mixture of pinup and rock and roll. The term here is rockabilly. Some of you may have noticed I have written posts that include this term. And Amy is a great definition.


Her signature winged eyeliner and red lip screams for pinup. But, with her choice of prints like plaid, cheetah, and her  preference for waist hugging wiggle dresses bring in that rockabilly style. Amy has a favourite accessory, and that is the waist belt. This accessory is so great because on any dress she just adds it on and it immediately becomes pinup.

Hair accessories suh as flowers and bandanas; leather jackets and cheetah prints. Rockabilly maddness.

Amy brought back the pinup style and jaz to the mainstream crowd. She was the complete package and I miss her so.
