Lori Loughlin walks first red carpet since college admissions scandal


Lori Loughlin has officially returned to the red carpet.

The « Full House » alum attended the 2022 DesignCare gala in Los Angeles on Saturday, marking her first red carpet appearance since the college admissions scandal.

Loughlin, 57, wore a long-sleeved dark blue dress for the occasion, accessorized with a rose quartz clutch and strappy silver sandals.

She completed the look with minimal makeup and her highlighted tresses styled in loose, subtle curls with a slightly off center part.

The actress and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, pleaded guilty in May 2020 to bribing their daughters Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella « Bella » Giannulli to the University of Southern California as bogus rowing recruits.

After serving prison time, Loughlin and Mossimo, 59, were released in December 2020 and April 2021, respectively.

Loughlin’s last red carpet appearance was in February 2019 at the Women’s Cancer Research Fund’s « An Unforgettable Evening » gala in Beverly Hills, California.

She attended the event with her daughters Olivia Jade, 22, and Bella, 23.

Like Loughlin, it seems Olivia Jade has also been enjoying her own return to the spotlight in recent years.

After appearing on Facebook Watch’s « Red Table Talk » in 2020, the influencer appeared on Season 30 of « Dancing With the Stars » last fall with pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy.

« Hard work really pays off, » Olivia Jade told Page Six in November 2021.

At the time, Olivia Jade credited the dance competition series for showcasing her hard work and diligence.

« I’ve really found a drive and a work ethic that I think I’ve had since I was young, but maybe I haven’t been able to execute the last few years. So it’s been really nice to find that,” she told Page Six and other reporters in a post-show statement in November 2021.

« Hard work really pays off, and when you really give something with your whole being and really feel the joy of doing it, there’s nothing like it. It’s so rewarding.
