Note to dolly self: Don’t lend Amy Winehouse your silk and satin dresses worth £25,000.

Not necessarily the frock(s) in question...

The reason for this is that first of all she’ll barf up on ’em and then, thirdly, green mould will grow on them.


The story goes thusly:

Harvey Nichols lends Amy Winehouse 25,000 English golden coins-worth of clobber ahead of fashion week, Amy goes on the lash in said clobber (er, natch!), eventually returns said said clobber to Harvey Nichols’ PR dollies, said said said clobber is covered in vom but not only vom, oh-oh-oh no. Green, furry mould aussi.

It’s a look.

Here’s the quote, from ‘Insider’. Oooh, it’s like Murder She Wrote…

‘Harvey Nichols loaned Amy £25k’s worth of silk and satin dresses. Unfortunately, while wearing one of the frocks, she went on an all-night bender. She ended up in the loos, where she was violently sick. Let’s just say it wasn’t pretty.

‘She eventually couriered them back on Monday, but didn’t wrap them separately. So sick had gone on all the clothes. Even worse, green, furry mould had developed on some gowns, making them unwearable.

‘The store publicists weren’t best pleased. I doubt Amy will be sent any more designer gear for a while and the store has now asked for its £25k back.’

But is it a matter for the police?

  1. Green furry mold? I doubt it. I think it maybe a cure for some rare diseases because it has kept Amy alive these last few years. Get those dresses to a lab!

  2. And now they’re telling all and sundry as that was always the plan, to garner some ‘publicity’. Not quite sure what it’s saying about Harvey Nichols, though, aside from the fact that they’re a bit thick, because no woman in their right mind is going to think ‘I really want to look like Amy Winehouse, and so will go and buy some clothes at Harvey Nicks’.

  4. But bad publicity = bad publicity. Just ask Gerald Ratner.
