Amy Winehouse has a found a fan in designer Karl Lagerfeld who has likened the star to Brigitte Bardot and hailed her as a "style icon".
Lagerfeld admires Amy for her bold, beehived-shaped hairstyle, and even recreated the style on the models at his recent Chanel show in London.
He told contactmusic.com, "She is a style icon. She is a beautiful, gifted artist. And I very much like her hairdo. I took it as an inspiration. Because, in fact, it was also Brigitte Bardot's hairdo in the late Fifties and Sixties. And now Amy has made it her own style. So, when I saw her, I knew it was the right moment. Amy... she is the new Brigitte."
