Amy Winehouse's Wedding Dress Stolen Prior To Auction
The wedding dress belonging to the late Amy Winehouse has been snatched from her home in Camden, London where the singer passed away last year.
The dress was white cotton with anchors detailing it and was worn when the singer married her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil in 2007 on Miami Beach, Florida. According to Amy's father Mitch, the dress was one of the less valuable items in terms of price that remained at her house. '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', he told The Sun. 'Her wedding dress was only a little cotton thing, a hundred quid at best in the shops.' The frock, however, was an item of great sentimental value and was due to be auctioned off for charity at an expected £100,000. 'Whoever nicked it realised its significance and knew it had an extra value', Mitch continued. 'It's sickening that someone would steal something in the knowledge of its sentimental value.'
Another dress was also stolen from the house; a newspaper print cocktail dress that the 'Rehab' hit maker wore on 'Jools Holland's Later show'. That outfit was thought to go for £30,000 at auction.
