Amy Winehouse's famous halter pin-up style wedding dress and her newspaper-printed Moschino frock she wore on Jools Hollands's television show in 2006 have been stolen from her London home, Vogue UK reports. The dresses were set to be auctioned in New York next month to raised money or the Amy Winehouse Foundation - an organization which supports disadvantaged or troubled youth.
Winehouse, who was never one to follow tradition, wore her casual style wedding dress when she married ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil in Miami in 2007. The bridal dress was expected to raise £100,000 (or $160,210) and the Moschino dress £30,000 (or $48,063).
"It's sickening that someone would steal something in the knowledge of its sentimental value," the singer's 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."
Amy Winehouse succumbed to her alcohol addiction and died July 2011; she was 27. Her home in Camden will soon be sold. Winehouse's personal belongings were in the process of being tagged, numbered and logged in preparation for storage.
"There was a window of about two days while that process was underway when the dresses could have been taken," said Mr. Winehouse. "A few people were involved and there was some coming and going. We're going through everything to see what else, if anything, has been lifted.© 2013 Fashion & Style.com All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
