YOU'VE heard of heroin chic - now top fashion label Guess? has injected the Australian star of their latest campaign with the gritty rock'n'roll image made famous by hopeless drug addict Amy Winehouse.
While sadly these days she's better known for crack than her cracking talent, the Rehab singer has become the muse to launch the upcoming Guess? campaign starring homegrown model Nicole Trunfio.
Hopefully minus the acne-addled skin, bloodshot eyes and malnourished body which have become as much a part of Winehouse's look as her trademark beehive, Trunfio will be styled to replicate the tabloid tragedy in the internationally advertised images.
A US representative for Trunfio told The New York Post the Perth-raised beauty's look "mimics the singer's iconic thick black eyeliner and infamous beehive, adding a little rock and roll to their pin-up image".
It's not the first time the US label has turned to a party-crazed pin-up to promote its extensive range of designer denim.

While it was jeans genius at the time, the move to use the late Anna Nicole Smith as the sultry star model in the 1993 Guess? campaign rapidly fell by the wayside as the Playboy bunny's rampant drug and alcohol addictions took hold.
But given Trunfio's only known addiction is being a slave to fashion, the catwalk queen is safe from the drug dangers which have previously befallen the careers of Winehouse and Smith.
The Guess? campaign is the latest in a portfolio of top poses Trunfio has struck for labels, including Chanel and Valentino.
