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).
