Amy Winehouse’s time on earth was short, but her voice was undoubtedly one that touched generations. However even in her death, Winehouse can’t get a break.
According to reports from Amy Winehouse’s father, two of her most prized dresses that were to be put up to auction have been stolen from her house, one of them her wedding dress.
As reported by The Sun:
The missing dresses include the anchor-patterned cotton dress Winehouse wore to marry ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil in 2006, as well as a newsprint Moschino Cheap & Chic frock she donned for a television performance that same year. Together, the dresses were expected to fetch up to £130,000 (approximately $210,000).
Mr. Winehouse believes whoever conducted the heist carefully plotted it based on the sentimental value of the stolen garments. “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. Whoever nicked it realized its significance and knew it had an extra value.”
Sounds like someone knew exactly the route to take when it came to snagging the things that would go for the most dough.
The money from the auction fetched from the sale of the dresses was supposed to be going towards children’s hospices and drug addiction counseling, so for the sake of Amy’s memory, we hope they find the culprit soon.
