TMZ is reporting that Lupita Nyong’o’s Calvin Klein Oscar dress – adorned with 6,000 white Akoya pearls and valued at $150,000 – was stolen from her West Hollywood hotel. Lupita told the police it was taken from her room at the The London Hotel sometime between 8 AM and 9 PM Tuesday , while she was out. TMZ believes there may be security footage that cops are looking at that could catch the culprit right in the act. My theory? EVIL, STICKY-FINGERED DRAG QUEENS. You’ll find the culprit wearing it this Monday night at Mickey’s!
This dress, I swear, gets more interesting by the day. Check out the step-by-step pictorial of how it was made here.
