Amy's instantly recognizable look originated from her great love of 1960s girl groups. Her big beehive and Cleopatra make up was borrowed from Ronnie Spector of 60s hit-making girl group, The Ronettes. Following her growing success, Amy's look became what she was most known for.

Her career began to take off as Frank entered the upper levels of the UK album chart in 2004. Many of the songs were influenced by jazz and, apart from two covers, every song was co-written by Winehouse. The album went on to achieve platinum sales and in 2004, she won the Ivor Novello Songwriting Award for Best Contemporary Song with her contribution to the first single, Stronger Than Me.
