Devastating news for the family of Amy Winehouse this morning, as the dress the late singer wore on her wedding day (pictured) has reportedly been stolen from her London home.
“It’s sickening that someone would steal something in the knowledge of its sentimental value,” Amy’s father Mitch Winehouse told The Sun. “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.”
The black and white newsprint dress Amy wore on Jools Holland has also been stolen, although nothing else appears to have gone.
“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.”
The items in Amy’s London house – which is soon due to be sold – are in the middle of being sorted out, which is when her family think the dresses went missing.
“There was a window of about two days while that process was underway when the dresses could have been taken,” Amy’s dad continued. “A few people were involved and there was some coming and going. We’re going through everything to see what else, if anything, has been lifted.”
Fingers crossed the dresses were actually misplaced and not stolen; we hope they turn up/are returned as soon as possible.
