Lupita Nyong’o’s Oscar Dress Recovered

Lupita Nyong’o’s Oscar dress made of over 6,000 pearls has been recovered.

As HipHollywood previously reported, Lupita’s Calvin Klein gown worn to the 87th Academy Awards was taken from her hotel room at The London in West Hollywood earlier this week.

But on Friday, law enforcement received a call from a member of the media claiming that they got a tip from an anonymous caller claiming that the dress can be found in a bathroom on the second floor of the hotel. And sure enough, there it was.

But in an interesting twist, not only did the the thief return the dress, he also claimed that the pearls from the gown were fake. The thief called TMZ around 3 p.m. on Friday and claimed that the he took two of the pearls from the dress to the Garment District in L.A. and found out they were not real.

But according to Calvin Klein’s camp, they never said the pearls were real. However, Francisco Costa, the Women’s Creative Director of Calvin Klein Collection, who designed the dress is just happy to know the dress has been located.

“This was an amazing collaboration between the brand and Lupita and the dress looked truly exquisite on her,” Costa said in a statement to Women’s Wear Daily. “Once it’s returned to us, we will be able to have the dress restored and archived, as it now represents an important moment for the brand.”

“Collaborating with Francisco for my Oscar dress this year was such a special and unforgettable experience,” Nyong’o explained. “I’m happy that it has been potentially recovered. It is a timeless and priceless piece of art.”

    They may not have said it was real, but I bet the insurance on that dress covered real pearls.

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards

Published

on

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

Halle Berry – Getty Images

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

Storm Reid – Getty Images

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

Kerry Washington – Getty Images

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
