Amy Winehouse is set to model at this year's London Fashion Week.
The troubled singer has been approached by top British designer Julien Macdonald to appear in his show at the prestigious event in September.
He said: "Amy has great style and she's an amazing talent, isn't she? She's unique."
However, many fashion critics are worried her scruffy look may inspire a new high-street trend.
A source said: "It's unbelievable - when you see her she is such a mess. She's always roaming the streets in ripped clothes, like she's thrown things on, and not on purpose.
"She goes for a rework of the 50s look, but when she's out of it, she looks terrible. There's nothing chic about walking around drunk and screaming in public."
In February, it was reported Amy was offered £500,000 for a one-off performance by French fashion house Louis Vuitton to appear at their show during Paris Fashion Week.
A source said: "Louis Vuitton are huge fans of Amy and think she'll be the perfect performer during their show, which is one of the most anticipated throughout the week. It's a lot of money but they know she'll be worth it."
