In November 2014, The Day After Tomorrow actress Emmy Rossum sported a gray dress from grandma’s closet at Fox’s Cause for Paws: An All-Star Dog Spectacular held at Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport in Santa Monica.

10 years earlier, she had her breakthrough as Laura Chapman in the Roland Emmerich eco-disaster film The Day After Tomorrow. For her performance, she was nominated for Breakthrough Female at the 2015 MTV Movie Awards.

Playing the friend and love interest of Samuel “Sam” Hall (Jake Gyllenhaal), Rossum got the role after Lindsay Lohan had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts.

“I was filming The Day After Tomorrow, it was my first big film, and I had to kiss Jake Gyllenhaal, so I was really nervous. The night before, I got a big zit and, stupidly, I picked at it, so then it was bigger and infected and had a scab over it. Jake called it my ‘third eye,'” Rossum told Interview magazine.

Just 16 years old when filming started in September 2002, the actress did not believe her co-star would be interested in kissing. “He’s never going to want to kiss me now!” she added. Born on December 19, 1980, Jake Gyllenhaal was 21 when filming started.

A major international success, The Day After Tomorrow was released in the United States on May 28, 2004. Just a few months later, she turned 18 on September 12, 2014.

For the program featuring rescue dogs, the then 28-year-old Shameless star paired her gray Jenny Packham Spring 2014 dress with earrings by Renee Sheppard and scalloped-edge black “Consuelo” pumps by Bionda Castana.

Do you agree that the dress would have looked nicer in a different color?

The Consuelo pumps are from the Spring 2014 collection and have previously been spotted on Ahna O’Reilly.
