Anna Friel flashes her side-boob as she steps out in daring jumpsuit and satin capelet

She’s come a long way since Brookside, but while Anna Friel’s career is on the up her elegant black outfit appeared to be opening up as she stepped out in New York City.

The 37-year-old actress was making an appearance at the city’s Ritz Carlton Hotel the day after attending an NBC Upfront presentation, where she was on hand to promote her forthcoming new series, Odyssey.

Dressed in a plunging black jumpsuit, Anna caught the eye as she hurried towards a waiting car – but it was her bare chest, exposed beneath her loose fitting box capelet that dominated.

Indeed, the acclaimed British actress inadvertently flaunted her side boob during the brief outing, and it was all the more evident thanks to the plunge neck detail of her otherwise elegant ensemble.

Anna matched her outfit with a pair of strappy wedge heels, while striking accessories in the form of a chunky statement bracelet and neck-chains of varying lengths rounded things off.

The Rochdale born star opted to keep her auburn hair loose and natural – a casual theme that appeared to continue with a rather limited use of make-up.

Anna’s latest TV venture was one of a string of new shows to be unveiled by NBC at their pre-season presentation in the city on Monday evening.

Starring alongside Peter Facinelli, the actress will play Sgt. Odelle Ballard in Odyssey, a Homeland style drama about strangers fighting an international conspiracy involving the military, corporate interests and Middle Eastern terrorist.
