Well, this is just terrible.
According to Amy Winehouse‘s father Mitch, as told to The Sun, two dresses belonging to the late singer–due to be auctioned for her namesake charity later this year in New York–have been stolen from her house in Camden, North London, where she died last July.
The missing dresses include the anchor-patterned cotton dress Winehouse wore to marry ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil aka “My Blake Incarcerated” 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.”
An investigation is currently underway. With the money raised at auction going towards children’s hospices and drug addiction counseling (causes obviously close to the Winehouse family), we’re seriously hoping Amy’s dresses get recovered sooner than later.
