Watch Out Marilyn, Now Amy Winehouse's Dress Went For $70,440 At A London Auction
November 30, 2011
A white dress from a young singer who passed before her time was just auctioned off in London—and this time, it’s not Marilyn Monroe’s. Rather, the strapless white gown belonged to Amy Winehouse, who wore it on the cover of her 2006 album, “Back to Black.”
The dress, designed by Disaya Sorakraikitikul, garnered $70,440 (i.e. 43,200 pounds) at yesterday’s auction. All proceeds from the sale benefited The Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity targeting at-risk youth, which the singer’s parents set up in her honor after her death.
