(Newser) – Amy Winehouse is about to release a line of clothing and makeup for the many, many people who want to look like her, the Sun reports. Prepare for Winehouse-brand leopard-print headscarves, hairspray, and, of course, liquid eyeliner. “I think this stuff would sell very well,” said a fashion industry source. “She has become a fashion icon despite not always looking too fresh.”

The news broke yesterday—which was not April 1—just as Winehouse donned the aforementioned scarf and a skimpy white vest and rushed off to visit husband Blake Fielder-Civil in prison. “Amy’s style has been copied by girls around the country,” a friend said. “There’s a lot of money to be made. It’s a very distinctive look.”
