We haven’t seen Jennifer Connelly on the red carpet since January 2011, but she made a welcome return in New York City last night for the screening of ‘Virginia’.

The screening was held at the Crosby Hotel where the actress showed off her post-baby body wearing an Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2012 dress.

Her classic LBD with exceptional tailoring and a ruffled velvet necktie was styled with an Alexander McQueen black croc-skull clutch and a sexy pair of Giuseppe Zanotti Swarovski-embellished sandals.

A low bun and a rich lip colour completed her look.

What a great comeback.
