Kelly Rutherford stuns at the Badgley Mischka and Son Jung Wan shows during NYFW… after reflecting on ‘heartbreaking’ time she lost custody of her kids in 2015

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 at the Badgley Mischka show, which was held at the Starrett-Lehigh Building in Manhattan.

The Gossip Girl star – who recently shared her tips on maintaining a healthy complexion – donned a sparkly long-sleeved top which had a skirt-like attachment at the waist.

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

The Melrose Place actress’ beautiful blonde locks went well with the bright tone of her clothes and fell down her back.

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

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

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

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

The actress subsequently entered into a lengthy legal battle with her ex-husband and declared bankruptcy after spending nearly $2 million in legal fees, and she eventually moved to Monaco to be near her children.

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

“My kids are getting older, and they’re kind of like, ‘Okay, get on with your life.’ They’re teenagers now, and they have their friends and their stuff. So my day-to-day lately has been more about me and my dogs gone, work and travel,’ she said.

The artist admitted that while her custody battle was particularly ‘challenging’, she was lucky 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 am very grateful for where we are. I have a good relationship with my children,’ she said.

Rutherford then spoke about enduring adversity and expressed her commitment to staying close to her children.

She said: ‘You heal, you grow. You look at the lessons that came out of it. You look at how your children have grown up, and how they are doing so well, and you are grateful for that.’
