She looks GOOD: a revamped Amanda Bynes steps out in LA


Two months ago she was spotted at a West Hollywood eatery with her life coach… and now Amanda Bynes has emerged once again.

And while back in May she certainly appeared noticeably happier and healthier – yesterday, the 29-year-old actress positively shone at an LA fashion event.

Wearing a tight white lace dress, she completed her outfit with leather stilettos and a small leather shoulder bag. She also had on oversized sunglasses and her trademark long, blonde wig.

Ms Bynes was attending the launch party for Project Runway star's Michael Costello's capsule range in Los Angeles – seemingly the first bash she’s been a guest at since her much-publicised breakdown and mental-health issues.

Also attending the same soiree were former Danity Kane members Shannon Bex and Abrey O'Day, as well as singer Nicole Scherzinger.

Earlier this year, a spokesperson for the star said: "Amanda is doing great. She appreciates all of the love and support she receives from family, friends and fans."

Legal representatives for her parents, Lynn and Rick, also said at the same time: "She is doing great, working on her fashion design and staying focused on living a balanced and healthy life."

It has been furthermore reported that Ms Bynes has made sufficient health improvements to move out of her parents’ home and into her own apartment.

It is believed that Amanda’s relationship with her mum and dad, which at times has been hugely strained, has also improved significantly since late last year.

As recently as last October, the star was being treated in a psychiatric facility.

In 2012, she was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, and two years ago she was involuntarily hospitalised because of her erratic behaviour.

Two sets of hit and run charges against her were dismissed when she made financial settlements out of court.

She has also been caught shoplifting and in a series of worrying tweets, she made several incredible accusations – including that she had been sexually abused by her father.

It was a comment she later retracted, saying that a "microchip made her say it".

The former Nickelodeon star remains under the temporary conservatorship of her parents.
