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.

Hot Or Bothered: Fashion At The 2017 American Music Awards

Published

The night music fans have been waiting for is finally here! The 45th American Music Awards went down right Sunday night at Microsoft Theater in L.A. and a host of your favorite stars hit the red carpet in some looks that were hot and some that had us bothered … let’s start with the hot!

The evening’s host Tracee Ellis Ross sparkled and shined in this burgundy sequined Stella McCartney gown. We’re  sure her mother Diana Ross inspired this look.

Meanwhile her  sister-in-law Ashlee Simpson Ross dazzled in a sparkly number by Christian Siriano.

And of, the evening’s Lifetime Achievement Award winner and honoree – Diana Ross proved why she’s a music and fashion icon in this black gown and hat.

 

Selena Gomez showed off her killer bod wearing a Coach leather minidress and brand new platinum hair.

Also killing it in an LBD – that’s leather black dress, was Ciara wearing Alexandre Vauthier Haute Couture. Ok Ciara!

 

Demi Lovato looked like a goddess in this black sheer strapless gown by Ester Abner.

 

And, Kelly Rowland gave us grecian vibes in this velvet gown with embellished bodice.

But the look that stole the show  DJ Khaled’s son Asahd, looking super adorable in his tiny black suit and Gucci loafers that cost a whopping $275. That’s what we call winning at 1 year old.

But someone whose look was not winning … Nick Cannon. We’re not sure why he was dressed like a Bratz doll, but he needs to stop.

Sadly we also have to request that whoever dressed Pink in this awful tulle Monique Lhuillier dress be fired immediately. Sorry we love you Pink but this dress was a hot damn mess.
