20 FEBRUARY 2009 Elegant in a champagne-coloured gown and laden with dazzling jewels at the Vienna Opera Ball, Nicollette Sheridan looked more than capable of fulfilling her wish of attracting a royal lover.
"I'm always looking for a man. But please, only princes should talk to me," quipped the actress, who was a world away from her minxy Desperate Housewives character as she attended the Austrian capital's annual gala.
Nicollette, who split from her fiancé crooner Michael Bolton last year, also confessed she'd dreamt of experiencing a Cinderella moment like this one since her childhood in West Sussex.
"I grew up in England. I love Europe and always dreamed of visiting a ball like this," she said.
