Amy Winehouse: a life in pictures

Stylist takes a look at the life of a phenomenal singer who drew comparisons with greats such as Billie Holiday and Nina Simone.

Amy started songwriting at the age of 14 and was propelled into a world of international stardom in 2006, with the release of Back to Black. Alongside her rise to fame came personal problems and a much-publicised battle with drink and drugs - but above all, she remained one of the most iconic voices of her generation. From her birth in London in 1983, to her tragic and untimely death at the age of 27, we present Amy's life in photos.
