The dress worn by Amy Winehouse at her final performance a month before she died is expected to fetch more than £11,000 as a collection of the late singer’s personal items are going up for charity auction. 

The Grammy Award-winning star, known for her distinctive raspy voice on her soul and jazz hits including Back To Black, Rehab and Love Is A Losing Game, died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011, aged 27.

At her final stage performance in Belgrade, Serbia, in June 2011, just a month before her death, Winehouse donned a figure-hugging green and black halter minidress, designed by her stylist Naomi Parry.

Now, the famous bamboo and floral print dress is estimated to fetch between £10,800 and £14,500 as it goes under the hammer at Julien’s Auctions alongside Winehouse’s clothes and personal items.
