wore the custom made Calvin Klein gown to the 87th Academy Awards last week, then returned to The London hotel in Hollywood where she hung it up, all £97,000 worth of it.

On tuesday she reported it missing at some time between 8pm and 9pm while she was out. The hotel are working with police to look into the incident. Will we see 6,000 pearls for sale on the black market soon? We feel for Francisco Costa - the designer of the dress - and the 25 people who spent 10 weeks hand stitching the pearls.

Lupita posted a time lapse clip of her getting ready in the dress on her Instagram feed this week.
