Amy Winehouse is set to pick up a cheque for £500,000 for performing at a one-off gig at the Paris Fashion Week.

The BACK TO BLACK star, who ironically was named WORST DRESSED PERSON at the NME AWARDS this week, is to perform at Louis Vuitton's show, the Sun reports.

Her presence within fashion circles seems to have inspired a number of people, with the newspaper reporting that Karl Lagerfeld has chosen to base some of his fashion lines on her sense of style.

Her trademark beehive hair style was also a prominent feature at London Fashion Week earlier this year, the Sun claims.

The singer is also rumoured to be considering launching her own clothing and cosmetics line, giving people the chance to emulate he own unique sense of style.

Earlier this week, AMY's court date in Norway relating to charges of drug possession was postponed, the AFP reports.

Set to appear alongside her husband Blake Fielder-Civil who is currently in prison, AMY will now be required to attend court in the country at a later date.
