    The flamboyant French designer saluted the late "Back to Black" hitmaker during his show at Paris Fashion Week on Wednesday by sending his models down the runway sporting Winehouse's iconic beehive hairstyle and heavy eyeliner. Several girls were also smoking cigarettes as they strutted down the catwalk.

    The singer's father Mitch took offense at the show, labeling it "in bad taste", and now Osbourne has blasted Gaultier, insisting her late friend would have disapproved.

    "They had 3 men singing rehab & models walking in death vials, its barley (sic) been 6 months since her passing! Wrong. I (love) the collection it was just distastefully executed! its just 2 (too) soon he turned his obsession into attention."
