She’s all that and more! 90s teen star Rachael Leigh Cook is making headlines and keeping everyone abuzz due to her surprise red carpet appearance at the 39th People’s Choice Awards at the Nokia Theater. She was spotted with hubby Daniel Gillies who stars in The Vampire Diaries, nominated for Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Show.

What a blast from the past, right? Rachael has been away from the spotlight for the past few years but she’s currently seen on TV’s Perception. Fans will be delighted to see more of her this year as she has two films coming out, Red Sky and High Midnight which is currently under production. The People’s Choice Awards, however, marks her first public appearance — and what an appearance it was.

The actress looked stunning in an Oliver Tolentino strapless gown with a draping hem and sweetheart neckline. Her makeup highlighted her delicate features and her hair was styled in a loose, low bun. For accessories, she chose a silver statement necklace, pearl earring studs and a crystal cocktail ring. Her clutch, most especially, caught our attention.
