Amy Winehouse Fashion













    Nicknamed as 'Wino', Amy Winehouse, the stunning English singer and lyricist, has received the prestigious Grammy Awards for a record five times for her unforgettable hits 'You Know I'm No Good' and 'Rehab' among others. She is known for her musical excellence in genres like soul, jazz and R&B, but there are some crazy fans who simply love her for her power-packed contralto vocals too.

    Amy was born on 14th September, 1983 in the city of London, England to Mitchell (father) and Janis (mother), a Jewish family. In her young age, the diva used to play her only brother Alex's guitar; and when she turned 13, she got one for herself. Many say that she was a rebellious kid and was once rusticated from her school in London for piercing her nose and painting her body with tattoos at the age of 14.

    Amy Winehouse's professional career took off very early when she was in her teens. Initially, she performed club gigs and recorded demos at low prices. A turning point in her career came in the year 2003 with her debut album Frank. This jazz music album got her into instant fame with marking her nominations in several award functions. After this, she suffered a setback on personal front in her relationship and even took to substance abuse.

    The year 2006 witnessed Amy Winehouse's comeback with her super hit album 'Back on Black' followed by 'Rehab' which sizzled the US pop charts capturing the No. 9 slot on the list of hits. These two releases got her a much desired global recognition. But, these were just not enough for a talent like Amy. On February 10, 2008, Amy broke all records by grabbing 5 Grammy Awards in one night. She was awarded in the category of 'Best New Artist' and 'Record of the Year' for Rehab. From here, everyone's lovely Winehouse was just unstoppable. The same year she gave multiple powerful performances to simply add more fans to her already huge fan-base.

    Later in the month of June, Amy had to encounter some unfortunate health issues. She was admitted in hospital because of lung infection. But, to celebrate Nelson Mandela's 90th birthday, she went out of the hospital to reach London's Hyde Park. There she performed her hit numbers Rehab and Valerie and once again made a place in thousands of thumping hearts. She also gave an unforgettable one hour performance at Roman Abramovich's party which was held in Moscow. For this single performance, she was paid $2 million.

    In the blink of an eye, Amy Winehouse became a rage for her fashion statement and musical concoction. In April 2008, she was voted the "ultimate heroine" by her British fans. But, because of her unacceptable behavior, the very next month she was voted as the most hated figure in the United Kingdom.

    Nevertheless in the sphere of music, Amy is unbeatable with her heart-stealing, cross-genre performances. Her experimentation with different musical genres like pop, R&B, jazz, reggae and soul not only captured millions of hearts, but ruled them completely.
