Lupita Nyongo’s $150K Oscar Dress Stolen?

Hollywood actress Lupita Nyong’o’s famous Oscar dress which costs $150,000 and featured 6,000 pearls is reported to be stolen from her hotel room in Hollywood.

The actress wore the custom Calvin Klein gown created by Francisco Costa to the 87th Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday and it is understood the show-stopping outfit was taken out of her room at The London hotel in West Hollywood.

According to reports, the 31-year-old told police it went missing between 8am and 9pm on Tuesday while she was out and authorities are now searching CCTV footage for answers.

A spokesperson from the LA Sheriff's Department told Us Magazine: “I can confirm a dress was stolen from the London Hotel that belonged to the actress Lupita Nyong'o,"

'We believe it was taken sometime during the day yesterday. 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.”

They added, “Currently we are still investigating, detectives are interviewing and looking for witnesses.”

The London is also said to have confirmed the incident saying, “This is a terribly unfortunate situation, and we are working with law enforcement on their investigation”.
