A wedding dress beloning to the late singer Amy Winehouse has been stolen from her former home in London, where it was being kept in storage.
The deceased singer wore the dress when she tied the knot with former lover Blake Civil-Fielder in 2007, and so far Metropolitan Police have said they are yet to receive a formal allegation about the thefts. Another dress once belonging to the singer, which she wore on an episode of Later...With Jool Holland, is also said to have gone missing.
Winehouse passed away of alcohol poisoning in July 2009, and since then all her possessions at her Camden home have been kept in storage there before being moved on to be sold or given elsewhere. A number of her dresses have already been sold at auction to raise money for the charity set up by her father in her name and so far the dress Amy wore on the cover of her album Back To Black sold for £40,000 last year whilst another was sold for £30,000. The wedding dress was said to have the potential to raise £100,000, all of which would have been given to the foundaion.
After two years of clearing and moving on, her former home in Camden is at last said to be empty and expected to be put on the market in the near future. Most of her former belongings were auctioned off at a special auction in New York earlier this year, with the remaining items expected to be sold at a similar auction in London in the near future.
