Teen millionairess Mary-Kate Olsen made her first public appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) on Sunday (29AUG04) since she checked into rehabilitation for an eating disorder.

The brunette Olsen twin, 18, spent six weeks in an undisclosed medical centre for an eating disorder from June to July (04).

After keeping a low profile all summer, Mary-Kate and her sister ashley attended the star-studded bash in Miami, Florida, to present an award - and they took the opportunity to thank fans for their support.

Although Mary-Kate looked visibly healthier, she wore a loose-fitting, flowing gown to cover her figure to avoid media scrutiny.
