Actress Lori Loughlin made her first red carpet appearance in more than three years on Saturday, following the college admissions scandal that saw her and her husband serve time in prison.

The Full House star attended the DesignCare 2022 Gala to benefit the HollyRod Foundation on Saturday in Los Angeles.

The HollyRod Foundation, founded by actress Holly Robinson Peete and her former NFL player husband Rodney Peete, supports families and those impacted by Parkinson’s Disease or Autism.

The 57-year-old, who was enjoying success on Hallmark series When Calls the Heart ahead of her scandal, wore a chic dark teal knee-length dress with puff sleeves.

She accessorised her outfit with a shimmering box clutch and strappy metallic sandals with block heels.

Lori also wore her dark blonde hair loose and in gentle waves as she posed for pictures on the event’s purple carpet, which featured a gorgeous flower wall of white, pink and purple blooms.

She also posed inside the function with her arm around host and long-time pal Holly, with both women smiling widely for the camera.

This marked her first official red carpet appearance since a February 2019 gala for The Women’s Cancer Research Fund, which she attended with her two daughters, Olivia Jade, 22, and Bella, 23, according to Page Six.

TV star Lori, best known for her part as Rebecca Donaldson, aka Aunt Becky, on Full House and its Netflix reboot Fuller House, served two months in prison in 2020 after pleading guilty to commit wire and mail fraud.

She was also hit with a $150,000 (£122k) fine and is currently serving two years on probation.

The FCI Dublin facility in California where the actress did her time was the same low-security facility where Desperate Housewives’ star Felicity Huffman served her sentence in relation to the college admissions scandal.

Lori’s husband Mossimo Giannulli served a five-month sentence for his part in the crime.

They were two of the 53 people charged as part of a college admissions scam, organised by Rick Singer.
