Lupita Nyong’o’s stolen Oscar gown has reportedly been recovered.
The gown, which was worn by Lupita Nyong’o on the big night, was from Calvin Klein.
Lupita Nyong’o looked stunning in the dress, which was supposedly dripping in white Akoya pearls and worth $150,000.
The dress was stolen right out of Lupita Nyong’o’s room at the pricey London Hotel off Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood.
Lupita Nyong’o contacted police Wednesday night to report the gown stolen.
West Hollywood Sheriff’s Sgt. Richard Bowman said that Lupita Nyong’o told detectives she left her room Wednesday morning and when she returned, the decadent dress was missing.
Police didn’t say whether or not Lupita Nyong’o’s room had been ransacked, but they took lots of evidence, including possible surveillance video.
Fast forward to only two days later, and the Los Angeles Sheriff’s department got a call from “a media representative” who got a call from an anonymous caller.
Police responded to the same hotel that Lupita Nyong’o stayed in and found a black garment bag underneath the counter in an abandoned second floor bathroom.
Inside was a dress “resembling the one” worn by Lupita Nyong’o on Oscar night.
They are working with the makers of the dress to confirm that it is indeed the same one.
But, they are pretty sure at this point in time.
A spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said, “We believe this dress is the dress that was stolen from the London Hotel.”
That must be a huge relief to Lupita Nyong’o and all of the people who put their hard work into making the remarkable gown, but are the pearls on the gown real?
