Amy Winehouse Dresses Stolen From London Home
Amy Winehouse's wedding dress has been stolen from the London home where the singer died.
The dress she wore to marry Blake Fielder-Civil in Miami in 2007 was stolen along with a newsprint cocktail dress Winehouse wore for a live performance.
Both dresses were going to be auctioned off for her foundation, which helps youngsters beat drugs and develop their music.
The wedding gown was expected to go for £100,000, while the cocktail dress she wore on the Later With Jools Holland show could have raised about £30,000.
A spokesman for the Amy Winehouse Foundation said the dresses had been stolen from the performer's Camden home in north London, but he added the property did not appear to have been broken into.
"Both the stolen dresses are part of Amy's story," the spokesman said.
The Back To Black singer died of alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at age 27, after a long battle with drink and drugs.
Winehouse's family has been cataloguing her possessions at her home, and realised only recently that the garments were missing.
The spokesman said that "somebody might be trying to sell them for their own profit".
"People need to know they are not supposed to be out there on the market and they should not try to buy them," he added.
The dress the singer wore on the cover of Back To Black sold for £40,000 last year, with the money going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, he said.
Scotland Yard has not received a formal complaint.
