LOS ANGELES - The pearl-encrusted $150,000 (435 million Ugandan-shilling) dress worn by Kenyan star Lupita Nyong'o at the Oscars last weekend was stolen from the actress's Los Angeles hotel room, police confirmed Thursday.

"It has been confirmed that it is the dress that was worn by Lupita Nyong'o," Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida said.

Nyong'o, who won a best supporting actress Oscar last year for her performance in the drama "12 Years A Slave", created a sensation on the red carpet on Sunday with her elaborate custom-made Calvin Klein gown designed by Francisco Costa.

The stunning dress was adorned with some 6,000 white pearls.

The gown was stolen from a room at the London West Hollywood hotel just off Sunset Boulevard, Nishida said. The theft was reported late Wednesday, police added.

No arrests have been made in connection with the theft, the Los Angeles Times reported.
