Kelly Rutherford made the rounds at a pair of New York Fashion Week shows that took place on Saturday.

The 55-year-old actress was initially spotted during the Badgley Mischka show, which was held at the Starrett-Lehigh Building in Manhattan.

The Gossip Girl star – who recently shared her tips about maintaining a healthy complexion – donned a sparkling long-sleeve top that featured a skirt-esque attachment at its midsection.

Rutherford paired her top with matching pants, and she donned a pair of black shoes and carried a similarly colored purse for the length of the event.

The Melrose Place actress’ beautiful blonde locks paired well with the bright tone of her clothing and cascaded onto her back.

The performer went on to change into a flowing white dress with jet-black straps before she made her way to the Son Jung Wan show, which also took place at the Starrett-Lehigh Building. 

Rutherford also wore a pair of black velour sleeves, as well as matching leggings and leather shoes, and she tied her hair back into a tight bun for the duration of her second show of the day. 

The Dynasty actress’ appearance at the events took place after she opened up about her relationship with her son Hermes, 17, and her daughter Helena, 14, during an interview with People.

Rutherford shares her children with her former husband, Daniel Giersch, to whom she was married from 2006 to 2010.

Although the couple initially agreed to a 50-50 custody agreement, he later had his visa revoked and moved to Monaco, after which a judge ruled that their kids should reside with their father. 

The actress subsequently entered into a lengthy legal battle with her former husband and declared bankruptcy after spending almost $2 million in legal fees, and she ultimately moved to Monaco in order to be close to her children.

Rutherford, who stepped away from her acting career to raise her kids, revealed that her children have supported her return to the entertainment industry in recent years.

‘My kids are getting older, and they’re sort of like, “Okay, get on with your life.” They’re teenagers now, and they’ve got their friends and their stuff. So my day to day has recently been more about me and my dogs, working and traveling,’ she said.

The performer admitted that, although her custody battle was particularly ‘challenging,’ she was happy to be able to play an active role in the lives of her son and daughter. 

‘It was a heartbreaking time. But I focus on the good most of the time, I really do. I’m very thankful of where we are. I have a great relationship with my kids,’ she stated.

Rutherford then spoke about moving on from adversity and expressed that she was committed to remaining close to her children.

She stated: ‘You heal, you grow. You look at the lessons that came from it. You look at how your kids have grown up, and how they’re doing so well, and you’re thankful for that.’
