Amy Winehouse wedding dress stolen

Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse's father Mitch thinks "it's sickening" that someone stole her frocks.

A thief pilfered the late singer's wedding dress and a cocktail gown from the Camden, London home where she passed away.

These items were going to raise money for the Amy Winehouse Foundation and Mitch can't believe that anyone would abscond with them.

"It's a blow," he told British newspaper The Sun.

"It's sickening that someone would steal something in the knowledge of its sentimental value.

"The house in Camden is being sold so all of her possessions have been tagged, numbered and logged in preparation of storage.

"There was a window of about two days while that process was underway when the dresses could have been taken.

"A few people were involved and there was some coming and going.

"We're going through everything else to see what else, if anything, has been lifted.

"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 realised its significance and knew it had an extra value."

The Amy Winehouse Foundation has raised nearly $2 million this year alone.

The charity funds children's hospices programmes and drug counselling.

When others are at the helm, progress grinds to a halt. People deliberate endlessly over simple matters. Instead of putting pressure on the person in charge, make a strategic retreat. If you act like you don't care about the outcome of a situation, they won't be paralysed with uncertainty. You have a tendency to make people nervous.More
