Kelly Osbourne Sends Off ‘Best Mate’ Amy Winehouse With Sweet Style (VIDEO)

Kelly Osbourne was among many family and friend mourners at Amy Winehouse's funeral in London today, and like any good girlfriend, she paid an extra special tribute to her fallen friend -- by wearing Amy's signature beehive hairdo to the service. What a sweet tribute to her best mate.

Only Kelly and Amy can understand the depths of their friendship and sisterhood, but it should come as no surprise that the two were connected on many levels. I cannot even imagine having to lose one of my close girlfriends.

When Kelly Osbourne heard the news about Amy Winehouse's passing, she tweeted:

I can't even breathe right now. I'm crying so hard. I just lost one of my best friends. I love you forever Amy and will never forget the real you!

Presumably, the "real you" that Kelly speaks of here is Amy's inner character that Kelly probably got to see but undoubtedly got largely overshadowed by her addiction. And Kelly knows all about what addiction can do to you. Not only were the two good friends, but Kelly, too, struggled with a painkiller addiction for many years. She checked into rehab in 2004 and 2005 before another rehab stint in 2009, which Osbourne says really got her to clean up. Osbourne also helped Amy Winehouse enter rehab in 2008.

I think it's amazing that Kelly was even "with it" amid her grief to put up her hair as a kind of heartwarming, unspoken shout-out to her lost friend. It's such a lovely best girlfriend thing to do.
