One of the standout red-carpet dresses from this week’s Academy Awards ceremony has been stolen.

Actress Lupita Nyong’o poses on the red carpet for the 87th Oscars. Police are investigating the theft of her dress worth $US150,000.

31 year old actress Lupita Nyong’o, wore the $150,000 Calvin Klein dress, which was encrusted with 6000 pearls.
The police said it was stolen from her room at the London Hotel in West Hollywood yesterday right after the star studded ceremony while she was out.

But the thief may have returned the dress.

“I’m happy that it has been potentially recovered,” Nyong’o said in the statement. “It’s a timeless and priceless piece of art.”

The thief reportedly took the dress back to the London in a garment bag and put it in a bathroom at the Hotel and claimed that the pearls on the dress were fake.
