All eyes were on Lupita Nyong’o at the 2015 Oscars when she graced the red carpet in a stunning Calvin Klein gown that featured 6,000 pearls. But one person had his or her eyes on just the dress, as the custom gown was stolen from the Oscar-winning actress’ hotel room!
The LAPD reported that the memorable gown, which is worth about $150,000, was taken from the 12 Years a Slave star’s room on Wednesday.
"I can confirm a dress was stolen from the London Hotel that belonged to the actress Lupita Nyong'o," a member of the L.A. sheriff's department told Us Weekly. "We believe it was taken sometime during the day yesterday 2/25. We are looking at every scenario; when the cleaners go to clean the rooms they do it with the door open so that's a possibility. Currently we are still investigating, detectives are interviewing and looking for witnesses."
