Amy Winehouse: I Dress Like I'm An Old Jewish Black Man (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

Harper's Bazaar caught up with Amy Winehouse, who is just finishing a clothing collection for British brand Fred Perry. She said she's been enjoying the project "ve'y much so," explaining, "It was not hard at all, not hard at all, because, like...I knew exactly what I wanted. And I love Fred Perry so much. I was honored that they would even, like, 'Do you want to come and do a line?' Me? Like, me?"

Winehouse remarked that she doesn't consider herself a style icon, claiming, "I just dress like...I'm an old black man. Sorry! Like I'm an old Jewish black man. I just dress like it's still the '50s." She added that she's not very good at photo shoots, "'Cause I'm a musician, I'm not really good at posing and being a model, like, modeling."

She also told Harper's Bazaar she's inspired by Elizabeth Taylor, but doesn't want to look like her -- "She had purple eyes. That's weird."

Check out some pictures from the shoot. All by Bryan Adams for Harper's Bazaar.
