Elizabeth Hurley escapes runs-in with ex hubby Arun Nayar at fashion exhibition

London: Elizabeth Hurley, who is engaged to Shane Warne, almost came face to face with her past as she attended a private viewing of Valentino: Master of Couture on Wednesday evening.

Inside the Somerset House exhibition, the 47-year-old actress managed to escape what could have been an awkward run-in with her former husband Arun Nayar, the Daily Mail reported.

Looking as stylish as ever, the ‘Bedazzled’ star took to the event in a strapless lace mini dress which she teamed with a pair of nude coloured heels.

Cuddling up to Italian fashion designer Valentino, Hurley narrowly avoided Nayar who was at the presentation with his leading lady model Kim Johnson.

Johnson took to her spot on Nayar’s arm in a metallic mini dress as he wore a black suit with a large purple scarf.

In June 2011, Hurley’s four-year marriage to businessman Nayar ended in divorce.

The former couple were granted a decree nisi by District Judge Penny Cushing at the Principal Registry of the High Court’s Family Division in London.

The judge held that the marriage had “broken down irretrievably” and would be dissolved within six weeks at the time of their separation.
