Someone probably thought they had pulled off the heist of the year when thy stole Lupita Nyong'o's stunning custom Calvin Klein Oscars dress out of her hotel room last week. The dress was valued at $150,000 and police were reviewing security footage form the hotel to try to catch the thief. Turns out, they didn't need to because the preson brought the dress back and left it in a trash bag at the hotel.

The thief apparently contacted TMZ after they did the dress drop-off and told them that they brought two of the pearls from the dress to the garment district in Los Angeles and were shocked to find out they were fake. The guy says he called TMZ to tell them about it because he wanted everyone to see "Hollywood's fake bulls**t."

The site reached out to the Women's Creative Director of Calvin Klein who said, "Did anyone ever say they were real from Calvin Klein? I always assumed everyone knew they were fake, but I guess not," adding, "Do they really make dresses out of real jewels since Cleopatra died?"

Valid point.

Now that Lupita's dress situation is settled, we can all go back to obsessing about this dress aka "The Dress" and argue about whether it's blue and black or white and gold.
