Someone pulled an Oceans Fourteen in Lupita Nyong’o‘s London West Hollywood hotel and stole the breathtaking pearl dress she wore to the Academy Awards.
The Calvin Klein gown, made out of 6,000 pearls and valued at $150,000, was stolen out of the Oscar-winning actresses room on Tuesday. Lupita was unable to immediately file a police report because the dress was on loan.
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Officer John Mitchell confirmed, “We got call at about 11:30 last night from someone at the London Hotel about a high value dress that was stolen from a hotel room.”
Lupita Nyong’o had a large entourage of family, friends, and her glam squad, who also had keycards that granted them access to her room. But, I’d hate to think someone in her own circle would scoop the dress.
Police are now reviewing surveillance footage from the hotel that was filmed between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. Tuesday hoping to catch the culprit leaving her room with the garment bag.
I’ll definitely keep you posted on this story.
