The $150,000 Oscar gown worn by actress Lupita Nyong’o which  was stolen was returned on Friday by the thief, who tipped off celebrity news site after finding out that the pearls on the dress were fake.

 The thief took the Calvin Klein dress from Nyong’o’s hotel room on Wednesday after finding the door ajar. The Kenyan actress had worn the dress adorned with 6,000 pearls to Sunday’s Academy Awards in one of the most commented looks of the night.
The thief and others removed two pearls from the dress and took them to the Garment District in downtown Los Angeles where they were told they were not real, according to TMZ.

The thief then took the dress back to the London West Hollywood hotel and told TMZ it was in a garment bag inside a trash bag in a bathroom.
