Who stole Lupita Nyong’o’s $150,000 Oscar dress? Detectives probing
Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives are investigating the theft of the $150,000 pearl-adorned dress worn by actress Lupita Nyong’o to the Academy Awards on Sunday.
Sheriff’s officials received a call about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday that a dress estimated to be worth $150,000 was stolen from a room at the London West Hollywood hotel, said Lt. William Nash of the sheriff’s West Hollywood station.
The dress was a white Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein gown decorated with 6,000 pearls.
Detectives were at the hotel Thursday morning investigating the theft, Nash said. He said the value of the dress is part of the investigation and no arrests have been made.
A call to Nyong’o’s representative was not immediately returned. The London West Hollywood hotel declined to comment. Detectives were reviewing security camera footage.
