Style Pick: Grammy Museum Celebrates Amy Winehouse With Beyond Black - LA Weekly

From her beehive-y  ’do to her bodacious take on black cat eyeliner to her fancy for retro frocks, Amy Winehouse’s signature look was as alluring as her soulful vocals. Debuting during Grammy Week, the Grammy Museum’s latest exhibit Beyond Black —The Style of Amy Winehouse showcases the gone-too-soon crooner’s personal clothing, shoes and bags, as well as never-seen-before journal entries, handwritten song lyrics and more from her family’s archive. Winehouse’s Grammys are also on display and there’s video too, making for an immersive look at the artist who left an indelible mark — albeit a dark one — on pop culture after passing at age 27 from alcohol poisoning. Many of the items on display are to be auctioned off when the exhibit ends, benefiting the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which works to prevent the drug and alcohol abuse by young people. Grammy Museum, 800 W. Olympic Blvd. downtown.; Sun.-Thu., 10:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m.; Fri.-Sat., 10 a.m.- 8p.m.; through April 13; $15.  grammymuseum.org/
