Amy Winehouse - Amy Winehouse's Dress To Be Auctioned

The dress worn by Amy Winehouse on the cover of her 'Back To Black' album is being auctioned for charity.

The late singer was loaned the chiffon-print frock by Thai designer Disaya when she was relatively-unknown and her stylist Louise Winwood was looking for an outfit for her to wear in photographs for the artwork of the 2006 record.

Following the photo shoot, the dress was returned to the designer and stored away but will now be sold in London at Kerry Taylor Auctions' 'Passion for Fashion' auction on November 29.

Kerry Taylor Auctions have estimated that the dress will fetch between £10,000 and £20,000 when it goes under the hammer, with proceeds going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

Auctioner Kerry Taylor said: "Over the years I have sold many highly valuable couture pieces related to celebrities and style icons, including the Duchess of Windsor, Audrey Hepburn and Princess Diana.

"In my opinion, what makes this particular dress so special, is that it is an emblematic reminder of the magic voice and sublime talent of Amy Winehouse - a sound that resonates with an entire generation and always will.

"I am pleased to help raise funds for her charity and encourage fans, the music industry and museums the world over to bid with us on November 29th."

Other outfits to be sold at the auction include two gowns that belonged to Dame Elizabeth Taylor and the dress worn by Audrey Hepburn when she collected her Oscar for 'Roman Holiday' in 1954.
