People magazine named her the most beautiful person of 2014.
Sheriff’s Lt William Nash said the dress appeared to be taken on Wednesday evening and officers were checking CCTV footage.
On the red carpet on Sunday, Nyong’o, 31, told Associated Press: “I’m just wearing my diamonds and pearls. My homage to (musician) Prince.”
“We talked about it being fluid and liquid. I wanted it to be an homage to the sea.” She added
No arrests have been made.
