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.”
LingeRIH: Rihanna In Talks To Launch Her Own Line Of Intimates
Rihanna is definitely one of the sexiest chicks in the game, so it’s not surprising that she is rumored to be launching a line of lingerie. According to WWD, the pop star, who has made her presence known in the fashion and beauty world with her namesake cosmetic and apparel collections has struck a deal with Tech Style for a line of intimates.
Rihanna reportedly inked a partnership with the Fashion Group, which is already home to successful brands like Fabletics, ShoeDazzle and Just Fab. TechStyle Fashion Group’s partnership with Rihanna wouldn’t be the company’s latest celebrity team-up, as Fabletics already scored a partnership with actress Kate Hudson and singer Demi Lovato, and ShoeDazzle (co-founded by Kim Kardashian, Brian Lee and Robert Shapiro) collaborated with actress-singer Keke Palmer.
The Rihanna-helmed lingerie line hasn’t received an official release date, but samples have already been produced, according to the report. In the meantime Rih is readying the release of her FENTYxPUMA collaboration.
Just last week she announced that she’ll be merging the two brands to launch a joint collection and debuted photos of models sporting the athleisure line in the middle of a desert.
The joint collection will be available for purchase on March 15.
