"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."
