Making her first official public appearance since the 41st Annual Chaplin Award Gala in April 2014, the French Kiss actress looked trés chic at Paris Fashion Week Monday. Ryan attended the Schiaparelli Haute Couture Fall/Winter 2015-16 show and was seated in the front row beside model/actress Farida Khelfa.
Ryan wore a form-fitting dress and understated makeup.
The actress, who hasn't appeared in a movie since 2009's Serious Moonlight, next stars in the movie Ithaca, which she also directed. Based on the 1943 novel The Human Comedy by William Saroyan, the film stars her son, Jack Quaid, plus Tom Hanks, Melanie Griffith, Christine Nelson and Sam Shepard.
Off camera, Ryan has been enjoying a romance with Mellencamp for several years. The couple broke up after three years last August, but Cougar never gave up hope. "She's an angel sent to me, and I'm very happy," the "Small Town" musician said on NBC's Today. "And, you know, nothing's over 'til it's over."
At issue: "There were disagreements over style of life and logistical problems which clouded their relationship," a source told People at the time. "But there is no doubt that he cares for her a great deal."
