According to Amy Winehouse's father Mitch, two dresses belonging to the late singer that were supposed to be auctioned off for her charity -- including the anchor-patterned cotton dress she wore to marry ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil -- have been stolen.
He also suspects that the thief knew exactly what he was taking.
"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 ... 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," Mitch, 60, tells The Sun. "It's sickening that someone would steal something in the knowledge of its sentimental value."
The other stolen dress is the cocktail dress Amy wore to perform on the Jools Holland show later that year. Both pieces had been set aside for auction in New York to raise money for The Amy Winehouse Foundation, which benefits children's hospices and drug addiction counseling. The dresses were expected to bring in approximately $210,000.
