Lupita Nyong'o's 6000 pearls : Actress dazzles in Calvin Klein's pearls dress

Lupita Nyong’o’s Calvin Klein Dress Features 6000 Pearls! While Nyong’o wasn’t nominated this year for an Oscar (she presented the Best Supporting Actor award, which went to “Whiplash” star J.K. Simmons, FYI), she wowed on the carpet nonetheless in custom Calvin Klein Collection, a gown that took several fittings both in New York City and in Los Angeles to complete.

But here’s the kicker: The dress features 6,000 different-sized pearls (a mix of South Sea, iridescent, and natural) sewn onto metallic tulle and silk lamé.

“Lupita has become a close friend of the house over the last year,” Calvin Klein’s Creative Director Francisco Costa said. “From the onset, I wanted the dress to be graphic, yet warm and luxurious.”
