Four days after confirming her engagement to John Mellencamp , Meg Ryan made a rare red carpet appearance in New York City Monday night. Wearing an elegant Roland Mouret gown.
The 56-year-old actress, who recruited makeup artist Christopher Ardoff and hairstylist Matthew Monzon for the event, also gave photographers a better look at her engagement ring.
Ryan began dating Mellencamp in 2011. She was based on the East Coast, while he remained in the Midwest, visiting her whenever he could. “I’m too sensitive to live in New York City,” he explained to Rolling Stone in 2013. “I can’t see poor people. I can’t see the suffering. I can’t see the trash on the streets.” Denouncing the paparazzi, the “Pink Houses” rocker added, “I don’t give a f–k about me, but I don’t like it for [Ryan]. I’m not leaving Indiana. I’m going to die here.”
