    Double. That's how much the dress the late Amy Winehouse wore on the UK cover of her Grammy-winning 2006 album Back to Black has sold for. The dress pulled in $68,000 at auction.

    Disaya Sorakraikitikul, the designer of the printed white dress, put the sheath up for sale to raise funds for the charity foundation set up in the singer's name. Experts predicted this item of clothing would pull in just north of $30,000. Winehouse's father Mitch, who established her namesake foundation, was pleased as punch about the earnings.
