She earned raves on Oscar night for her look but it seems someone liked Lupita Nyong’o’s dress a little too much. Someone stole the $150,000 custom made Calvin Klein gown from her hotel room Wednesday. The dress, adorned with about 6,000 pearls, was taken during the day from The London West Hollywood while Lupita was away. Fortunately for the actress, she doesn’t own the dress so it will be up to Calvin Klein to file police reports. Meanwhile, police were at the hotel yesterday reviewing security footage hoping to identify the culprit who took the dress. Why take it?? It’s not like you can wear it anywhere without someone realizing it was stolen!!!
The youngest daughter of Robin Williams made her first public comments about her dad’s suicide yesterday. Zelda Williams told Kate Snow on the “Today” show she doesn’t spend time wondering why he did it. “I don’t think there’s a point. It’s not important to ask.” However, she says she’s still struggling with his death, “It’s going to take a lot of work to allow myself to have the sort of fun, happy life that I had, but that’s important.” Robin Williams took his own life in August after a long battle with depression and substance abuse.
After years of not showing off her body, it turns out Taylor Swift’s decision to Instagram a bikini pic was merely an attempt to prevent someone else from cashing in on the opportunity. For years, the singer refused to show off her belly button even going as far as to joke she might not have one. However in December the singer finally revealed herself. Taylor told BBC 1 Radio’s “Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw” that the decision was made after she thought a photographer had gotten the shot she assumed would be worth a pile of cash. Taylor says she saw a fishing boat pull up nearby while she was boating and noticed they had a camera with a long-range lens. Assuming they had finally snapped the elusive belly button pic, Taylor decided to immediately go take a better one and send it out for free on Instagram in order to slash the value of a paparazzi pic. Got to admire the business sense there!!!
