As members of the Amy Winehouse Foundation rummaged through the late singer’s belongings at her former London home to account for items to be auctioned off, two items came up missing â her wedding dress and a newsprint cocktail dress the “Back to Black” singer wore during a TV appearance. The wedding dress was worn during her 2006 Miami wedding to Blake Fielder-Civil. Theft is the common consensus because the articles of clothing came up missing during an inventory.
Mitch Winehouse, the singer’s father, said it’s “sickening that someone would steal something in the knowledge of its sentimental value,” he told the Evening Standard.
The dresses would have been auctioned off to raise money for The Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity established to help youth overcome substance addiction.
Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011 at the age of 27.
