Emmy Rossum turned the head of a prince at a glitzy event on Tuesday.
The pretty actress attended the annual New Yorkers for Children spring dinner dance earlier this week. Emmy looked stunning in a Dior dress and clearly made an impression on a Saudi prince who apparently approached her and asked for her number. Emmy was in the elevator at the Mandarin Oriental hotel when the prince made his move.
The New York Post reports that although the 26-year-old brunette was flattered by the royal’s attention, she politely declined the offer of a date this weekend.
While Emmy was reluctant to hand over her cell phone details, the publication reports she was overheard joking to a friend about the encounter. The star – who previously dated Counting Crows singer Adam Duritz - apparently expressed her hope that the prince might consider bankrolling a movie for her in the future.
Valentino sponsored the benefit, which was held to raise funds for children in foster care.
The event attracted a host of stars, with models Crystal Renn and Hilary Rhoda attending in creations by the fashion house.
Olivia Palermo was also on the guest list and looked stunning in an asymmetrical yellow Katie Ermilio gown. While fashionista Olivia shone in the vibrant dress, she joked she felt like “Big Bird”.
Not everyone had such success with their outfits.
Socialite Tinsley Mortimer’s hot-pink dress had to be stitched up on the red carpet after the fabric on one side came undone while she was getting out of her car.© Cover Media
