New Amy Winehouse Auction Brings in Millions

An auction held at Beverly Hills, selling more than 800 of Amy Winehouse’s clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories worn by the British star on stage, in photo shoots and during various public events, has brought in $4 million over the weekend, Julien’s Auctions announced on Sunday, November 7.

The biggest seller of the event was a dress which Winehouse wore during her last stage performance in 2011 on her Summer Festival Tour. It sold for $243,200, which Julien’s said was 16x its original estimate of $15,000. The dress was a “custom-made figure-hugging halter mini dress designed by Winehouse’s designer and stylist, Naomi Parry, [which] has a bamboo and floral print on silk incorporated into a Spanx dress.”

Equally popular at the auction was a Moschino custom-made red leather heart-shaped purse which Winehouse took to the 2007 Brit Awards. The purse sold for $204,800, 13x its original estimate of $15,000.

Other items included a floral gold lamé D&G stage-worn dress ($150,000), a Temperly London tan and black jumpsuit ($121,600), a skirt ($11,250) and her Christian Louboutin tan peep toe heels ($38,400).

Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was established by the singer-songwriter’s parents, Mitch and Janis Winehouse, to raise awareness and support young adults with addiction problems. Winehouse was found dead at her London home on July 23, 2011 at the age of 27 after accidental alcohol poisoning.

Other items sold this weekend will go to the “Amy: Beyond the Stage” exhibition at the Design Museum in London starting Nov. 26 before going to the winning bidders after the exhibition.
