After months of staying low-key following aggressive media attention about her mental state and legal troubles, actress Amanda Bynes is back in the spotlight. Last night the former FIDM Irvine student made a rare appearance to attend red carpet favorite Michael Costello's pre-fall capsule collection launch in LA.
Arriving in dark sunglasses and a form-fitting lace dress by the local designer, 29-year-old Bynes was joined by Costello fans Nicole Scherzinger, Aubrey O' Day, Arika Soto, and others.
If Bynes is indeed back, let's hope she stays grounded and ignores any negative feedback that might come her way. Maybe some soul-searching at Wanderlust Hollywood (and a fresh new wardrobe by Costello) might do her good.
