(Last Updated On: February 27, 2015)

Guess theft in L.A is just as bad as here!! It seems the lovely dress Lupita Nyong’o wore to the Oscars, studded with 6,000 natural white pearls and worth US $150,000, was taken from the London Hotel in West Hollywood when Nyong’o was out of her room.

Lupita Nyong’o, who won best supporting actress last year for Twelve Years a Slave, was a presenter at Sunday’s ceremony.

The former Shuga star was named the most beautiful person of 2014 by People magazine.

Sheriff’s Lt William Nash said the dress appeared to be stolen on Wednesday evening and officers were checking CCTV footage.

On the red carpet on Sunday, Nyong’o, 31, told Associated Press: “I’m just wearing my diamonds and pearls. My homage to (musician) Prince.”

She added of the dress: “We talked about it being fluid and liquid. I wanted it to be an homage to the sea.”

No arrests have been made yet and Calvin Klein has not commented on the incident.
