...and just when y'all thought we were done talking Oscar night fashions.
As you may have heard that amazing pearl dress worn by Lupita Nyong'o was stolen from her hotel room. My first thought was "but where could you even wear that? Everyone will know and you're not going to look as good as Lupita anyway!" but then a more basic bitch realization: oh right, THOUSANDS of pearls. Supposedly 6,000 of them in all and unmarked and the dress is worth something like $150,000. Or, probably more than Lupita was paid for co-starring in 12 Years a Slave back before she was a household name, Oscar winner and instant fashion icon.
Theories abound but here are TFE's three best guesses as to the culprit.
01. THAT CREEPER who was lurking around the actresses all night. Suspicious!*
02 THOROUGHLY MODERN MILLIE. Consider the facts: She WAS at the Dolby that night. She IS cultivating a "Modern" bad girl image. She DOES have a thing for pearls.
03 URSULA. Her rep declares the allegations unfounded and insulting. "On the whole she's been a saint."
*Scarlett Johansson is now a character witness so it looks like he's off the hook.
