So... giant pile of pearls, anyone?
About Lupita Nyong'o's Oscar gown - the thing is beautiful, expensive and unfortunately, still missing. The dress went missing on Wednesday, post-Oscars ceremony, when the fashion-forward actress had left it in her hotel room.

The dress featured a cascade of 6,000 natural pearls and - in its intact state - cost over $150,000 - easily the most expensive piece at the ceremony. It was a white Francisco Costa for Calvin Klein and is apparently un-re-sellable, due to its infamy. However, some reports claim quite the opposite - that in fact, the pearls could be extremely valuable on their own. According to the NY Times' Page Six, earl experts estimated the individual pearls could be worth anywhere from $1 million to $10 million.
