Amy Winehouse album dress to be auctioned off for charity

The dress late singer Amy Winehouse wore in the photo on the cover of her hit 2006 album Back To Black is to be auctioned off for charity.

The printed chiffon outfit's designer, Disaya Sorakraikitikul, has donated the dress to the foundation set up in the singer's name, and it will go under the hammer at La Galleria in London later this month (29Nov11). It is expected to fetch up to $32,000 .

Auctioneer Kerry Taylor says, "What makes this particular dress so special is that it is an emblematic reminder of the magic voice and sublime talent of Amy Winehouse, a sound that resonates with an entire generation."

The tragic singer died in July (11), aged 27.
