The clothing icon took inspiration from the singer for his catwalk show in London last week by using her beehive image on his models.
Lagerfeld has also decided to launch a clothing line based on Winehouse's unique fashion sense because she reminds him of the French actress.
He told The Sun: "She's a style icon. She is a beautiful, gifted artist. And I very much like her hairdo. I took it as an inspiration. Because, in fact, it was also Brigitte Bardot's hairdo in the late 50s and 60s. And now Amy has made it her own style.
"So, when I saw her, I knew it was the right moment. Amy . . . she is the new Brigitte."
