Amy Winehouse’s Wedding Dress Was Stolen!
Thieves broke in and stole two dresses that were to be auctioned off for charity.
Thieves broke into Amy Winehouse’s home in Camden, North London and made off with two dresses that were supposed to auctioned off to charity, according to The Sun. Amy’s father Mitch said, “It’s sickening that someone would steal something in the knowledge of its sentimental value.”
Amy’s wedding dress, pictured above, is what she wore when she married Blake Fielder-Civil in Miami in 2007. That and a newsprint cocktail dress she wore on the UK TV show Later . . . With Jools Holland are the ones missing.Both dresses were estimated to bring around $209,000 to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
Her father is concerned that those two items were specifically targeted for theft. As he told The Sun, “The house in Camden is being sold so all of her possessions have been tagged, numbered and logged in preparation of storage. There was a window of about two days while that process was underway when the dresses could have been taken.”
“A few people were involved and there was some coming and going. We’re going through everything else to see what else, if anything, has been lifted. 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.
“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.”
According to Rolling Stone,London’s Metropolitan Police have not yet recieved a formal report on the thefts.
