Lupita Nyong’o’s Oscar Dress Has Been Found
You can stop panicking now. Lupita Nyong’o’s Oscar dress is finally found.
The Calvin Klein gown, which is adorned with 6,000 Akoya pearls and reportedly worth $150,000, has been returned to its rightful owner after the thief dropped it off back at The London in West Hollywood, Calif. this Friday.
Presumably out on the hunt for more cash, the culprit who took the expensive frock actually called TMZ to explain why he had delivered it back to the scene of the crime. According to him, he stole the dress from Nyong’o’s room when he noticed the door was left ajar. After taking the Academy Award winner’s gown, he cut two pearls off the all-white number to be appraised but later found out that they weren’t real. He then hid the dress and its garment bag inside a trash bag before depositing it back at the hotel, stashing it inside the second floor bathroom adjacent to a fitness center.
The burglar said that he called the website with the tip because he wanted the world to know “Hollywood’s fake bullshit.”
