In an homage to Amy Winehouse, Jean Paul Gaultier adds some retro colour and shebang to his haute couture runway show on Wednesday.

Four male gospel singers kicked off the show, singing Winehouse songs with a "No, no, no," and her song Rehab as a backdrop.

Winehouse’s death was grieved as the models, with high hair and thick eyeliner return to the catwalk for the finale, in black or coloured, dramatic veils, with fringe or embroidery. To the sound of Winehouse's song, Back to Black, the veils cover the models’ faces in mourning.
