The 'Back To Black' album cover outfit is going up for auction today.
Amy Winehouse's dress that she wore on the cover of her Grammy Award winning album 'Back To Black' is estimated to make £20,000 for charity today (29th November).
The outfit goes up for sale at the Kerry Taylor auctions with all proceeds going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation - a charity set up in the late star's memory.
Amy's father Mitch said: "It's poignant, extremely poignant to me and sad in one way because obviously the dress shouldn't be here, Amy should be here."
The foundation has already made £30,000 for good causes and Mitch is happy to be adding to that total.
"We're hoping to donate at least half a million pounds in the first year,' he added.
Meanwhile, it was reported recently that Lady Gaga visited the former home of the late star to pay her respects.
A new album of previously unreleased material from the 'Rehab' singer, 'Lioness: Hidden Treasures', is due for release on 5th December.
