It took 6,000 pearls to make Lupita's custom Calvin Klein Oscars gown

2014 Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o isn't nominated for an award this year, but her dress is undoubtedly going to be one of the most memorable parts of the night.

The 12 Years a Slave star walked the wet red carpet wearing a beautiful — and likely heavy — custom Calvin Klein gown bedazzled with 6,000 pearls.

What is there to say, other than she's flawless?

The gorgeous bodice played peek-a-boo with a keyhole opening in the front and draped across her shoulders. The low-cut back showed off her flawless skin, along with more pearl-adorned straps.

She topped off the look with Chopard earrings, Kirkwood heels and simple makeup accented with a shimmery eyeshadow.

Our question: How heavy is it? "It's actually quite comfortable," she told Lara Spencer on the red carpet before the show.
