Amy Winehouse’s ‘Back to Black’ Dress Up for Auction

Amy Winehouse
Island Records

The album was ‘Back to Black,’ but the dress was white! The soft, short frock that late singer Amy Winehouse wore on the cover of her breakthrough, Grammy-winning album, 2006′s ‘Back to Black,’ is up for auction.

The dress, which was designed by Disaya Sorakraikitikul and was lent to the ‘Rehab’ singer for the album cover shoot, could rake in as much as $30,000 when it is auctioned off in London!

The designer elected to donate the dress after Winehouse’s death. The Telegraph reports that the proceeds generated by the auction, set for Nov. 29, will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which the late singer’s father launched after her death. The foundation is designed to assist and support young people who battle the same substance abuse demons that Winehouse herself stared down. Winehouse died on July 23 at the tender age of 27. It was recently revealed that her cause of death was “misadventure” and that she passed away after consuming too much alcohol.

The spotted-print dress is adorable and reminiscent of Winehouse’s quirky style. The singer paired the dress with a red leather belt and open-toe, leopard-print shoes. The dress is a piece of musical history, and according to auctioneer Kerry Taylor, “it is an emblematic reminder of the magic voice and sublime talent of Amy Winehouse, a sound that resonates with an entire generation.”

There are other versions of the cover, such as the U.S. edition, where Winehouse wore a black dress. But the spotted dress remains on the cover of the U.K. and European versions.
