Amanda Bynes Resurfaces on Twitter With Platinum Blonde Hair, Looks Happy, Healthy: Picture

Looking great! After keeping off social media since March, Amanda Bynes returned to Twitter on Tuesday, Aug. 18, sporting flowing platinum (in fact, almost white) locks in a new picture. 

“Me and the fabulous Michael Costello (I'm wearing one of his beautiful gowns) at the SOAR Los Angeles Gala!” she captioned the photo posing with the designer.

The former child star, 29, wore minimal makeup and looked happy and healthy in a black dress with long white fingernails at the event. 

Last month, Bynes once again showed her support of Costello at his collection launch in L.A., marking her first public event in years. She was photographed in a crocheted white mini dress, waving to the cameras and smiling.

It is unclear whether the former Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising student has officially enrolled in the University of Southern California after tweeting her interest in moving to the West Coast to pursue her degree last winter. 

“I took a USC campus tour yesterday and it was sick! I plan on transferring from FIDM,” she tweeted on Dec. 17. “The campus is sick!” 

After a series of well-documented ups and downs including arrests, rehab stints, hospitalizations, and bizarre behavior, Bynes exited a treatment facility in October 2014. In the past year she’s managed to keep a relatively low profile, mostly avoiding social media and public outings.
