Amy Winehouse's legacy still lives on.

Less than a year after the troubled singer passed away at 27, the "Back to Black" singer's unique retro style was honored by designer Jean Paul Gaultier at his Paris haute couture runway show this week.

The French couturier sent his runway models down the catwalk sporting sky-high beehive hairdos, thick winged eyeliner and even drawn-on moles that were an homage to Winehouse's signature style, while a live a capella group sang "Rehab" in the background.

The looks include formfitting dresses and sexy corset tops like ones that Winehouse wore, and at the end of the show, many of the models donned black veils to walk the finale.

After the presentation, Gaultier told Women's Wear Daily, "I think Amy Winehouse was truly a fashion icon," one that he "felt compelled to celebrate...because magazines failed to do so."  

Last December, the singer's posthumous album Lioness: Hidden Treasures was released, with proceeds from the sales supporting the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
