Lupita Nyong’o’s ravishing pearl-encrusted Oscar gown (by Calvin Klein), which was reported missing earlier in the week, has been found! The LAPD says it found the dress Friday afternoon at the hotel from which it was taken. TMZ reports that the thief stashed it in a garbage bag underneath a sink after he had a couple of the pearls appraised and learned that they were fake (or “worthless”). Um, no. In a statement to WWD, Nyong’o said, “It is a timeless and priceless piece of art.” Basically, that dress was EVERYTHING.
