Amy Winehouse's wedding dress stolen!
In further bridal gown news today a wedding dress which once belonged to the late Amy Winehouse has been stolen. Another Moschino newspaper print dress which the singer wore to perform on Jools Holland's TV show in 2006 has also been taken from her London home.
Both dresses were set to go under the hammer at an auction in New York next month with proceeds to go towards the Amy Winehouse Foundation. The late crooner wore the simple floral-print cotton dress when she married her ex-husband Blake Felder-Civil in Miami in 2007. The dress was expected to fetch up to £100,000 at auction, while the Moschino newspaper-print frock was expected to pull in at least £30,000 to be donated to Winehouse's charity which helps support disadvantaged young people.
"It's sickening that someone would steal something in the knowledge of its sentimental value," her father, Mitch Winehouse, told The Sun.
"Her wedding dress was only a little cotton thing, a hundred quid at best in the shops. Whoever nicked it realised its significance and knew it had an extra value. We are all baffled as to why some of her designer dresses didn't go too. There were a couple from Dolce & Gabbana worth a fortune."
Following on from her untimely death last year, Amy's £3 million Camden home is on the market and will soon be sold. As such all of her possessions are currently being logged and tagged. It was during this process that her family noticed the dresses had disappeared. It is not believed that the house was broken into.
