Her midi dress featured a frilled hem, black straps and a matching waistband which highlighted her slender curves.

The reality star tucked her brunette locks back in a stylish low ponytail, framing her visage with her curled fringe and soft make-up look. 

Meanwhile her friend exuded femininity in a floral midi dress, complete with a pleated skirt.

Amy Winehouse’s best friend says he was the ‘only one who knew what she was really going through’

Amy Winehouse’s childhood best friend Tyler James has spoken about the singer’s final days on the tenth anniversary of her death from alcohol poisoning aged 27.

On Monday, Tyler told Nine’s Today show he was the ‘only person who knew what she was really going through’.

‘I lived with Amy most of her adult life and I’m the only person who knows what it was really like to be her,’ he said.

Amy Winehouse’s tragic last days: Singer’s best friend Tyler James has said he’s the ‘only one who knew what she was really going through’ on the 10-year anniversary of her death

‘When I meet Amy, she was 13 and I was 12, and I had this instinct straight away that I needed to look after her.’

Tyler also discussed Amy’s tragic last days and said all ‘she ever wanted was to be sober’.

‘When Amy passed away, I got this feeling that people thought it was inevitable [but] Amy didn’t take drugs for the last three years of her life,’ he said.

‘She would be sober for six weeks and she would relapse for three or four days. Every time she would get back onto being sober again and that’s what she wanted. I don’t think people realise that.’

Tyler’s new book My Amy tells the story of the icon’s troubled life after the pair met at London’s Sylvia Young Theatre School when they were both teenagers.

Amy soared to fame upon the release of Frank in 2003, as she gained both critical and commercial success with the debut as her jazz-inspired vocals won fans all over before her second album Back To Black’s introduction three years later.

‘Amy didn’t take drugs for the last three years of her life’: Tyler also discussed Amy’s tragic last days and said all ‘she ever wanted was to be sober’

In a heartbreaking turn of fate, the London-born icon’s dazzling career was plighted by her demons after she fell into the clutches of drink and drug addiction.

As she ascended higher on the fame ladder she discovered her demons – in drink, drugs and also eating disorders.

In 2011, an inquest gave a verdict of misadventure after finding that she had 416mg of alcohol per decilitre in her blood.

This is more than five times the legal drink-drive limit and enough to cause her to become comatose and depress her respiratory system.

While the Like A Boss star, 54, originally gifted the bird to her husband François-Henri Pinault for Valentine’s Day, her bond with their family pet has only grown.

‘The minute I go deep into meditation, she stays super still,’ she told People in a new interview, released Monday. 

Fans of the actress, who has been very busy promoting her new film Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, regularly shares photos with Kering sitting on her head or shoulders.

Funny: While speaking about her favorite self-care rituals and how to combat stress, she surprised fans by explaining she meditates with her ‘owl very, very often’

During a video interview for People’s 2021 Beautiful Issue, Hayek said she named Kering after her husband’s company because ‘their symbol’ is ‘of the owl.’

Even though the owl was a present for her man, she said he told her: ‘Thank you, but I know this is your own present for yourself.’ 

‘Just being in the same room [with her], there’s an energy to it, and it is mesmerizing,’ she added.  

‘The minute I go deep into meditation, she stays super still,’ she told People in a new interview, released Monday

‘Sometimes, when she is really close to me, I can feel her rubbing against me, which is really nice. And I feel so blessed,’ Hayek said. 

The mother-of-one has previously introduced her social media followers to her love of animals with videos of her dogs and two parrots.

The animal lover has never been shy about expressing her fondness for adopting unsheltered pets. 

‘Sometimes, when she is really close to me, I can feel her rubbing against me, which is really nice. And I feel so blessed,’ Hayek said

‘I have five horses, four alpacas, one cat, eight dogs, one hamster, five parrots, two fish, I’m sure I’m forgetting something!’ Salma said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October 2013.

‘You know this is like the Oscars you forgetting someone. Oh I forgot! I have bunny rabbits, I have turkeys, 20 chickens, same with the rabbits be careful just buy one.’

She added, ‘I don’t know something is in the air at my ranch, animals keep reproducing!’
