Amy Winehouse's wedding dress, which was to be auctioned for charity, has been stolen from her home, a spokesman for the Amy Winehouse Foundation has confirmed.

The dress she wore to marry Blake Fielder-Civil in Miami in 2006 was stolen along with a newsprint cocktail dress she wore to perform on the BBC live music show Later With Jools Holland.

It is thought the wedding dress could have raised up to £100,000 for her foundation which helps youngsters beat drugs and develop their music.

And the cocktail dress could have raised a further £30,000 at the auction later this year.

The dresses were stolen from the singer's Camden home in north London, but it is not believed the property was broken into, according to a spokesman for the foundation.

Winehouse's family realised only recently that the garments were missing when they were cataloguing her possessions at the property.

it is thought that the items may have been stolen to order by someone entering the house during events after her death in July last year.

The dress worn by the late singer on the cover of Back To Black raised £40,000 last year for the foundation, while another dress worn by the performer sold for £30,000.

A spokesman for the Amy Winehouse Foundation said: "Both the stolen dresses are part of Amy's story."

A lot of clothes and items were left and they were being catalogued when it was realised these two were missing. They were going to go to the foundation but 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.

Scotland Yard has not received a formal complaint but it is thought the star's father Mitch Winehouse has been speaking with a family liaison officer the Metropolitan Police gave them after his daughter's untimely death in July 2011.
