This is sad sad news
😦 😦 😦
Two dresses which belonged to the late singer Amy Winehouse, one being her wedding dress, have been stolen from the singer’s former home in North London.
While Amy’s belongings were being tagged and prepared for storage in her former North London home, two of the very important garments have been reported missing from her closet. A Moschino newspaper print dress and the anchor -print mini dress that she wore to marry ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil in 2006 were both discovered missing during inventory. These two garments were only a month away from being acutioned off to benefit THE AMY WINEHOUSE FOUNDATION to the estimated tune of approximately R2,000,000!!
The thieft must have had knowledge that the two specific dresses had sentimental value to Amy. Garments worth a fortune were left alone in the closet, while the two iconic dresses were the only ones found to be missing. Mitch Winehouse, Amy’s dad said:
“Her wedding dress was only a little cotton thing, a hundred quid at best in the shops. Whoever nicked it realised its signifcane and knew it had extra value.”
Since her untimely death from alcohol poisoning in July 2011, her home has been left as a shrine to her fans. Now it is being prepared for sale and therre was a two day inventory period whe it was believed that the garments were stolen. Currently Mitch and his crew is looking through the rest of her belongings to see if the thief took anything else.
Whether it was a Amy super fan or high class burglar who stole the wedding dress is still up for determination. Thankfully, its no longer Halloween, so we can never confuse potential burglars wiith those happened to be dressed up as the former singer. Although if you saw a strangely authenic costume running around this past weekend, you will no longer have to ask them where they got it.
