Jennifer Connelly In Alexander McQueen – ‘Virginia’ New York Screening

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.

You can buy Jennifer’s Giuseppe Zanotti sandals from Luisa via Roma.

    The black is so heavy it looks like she’s going to a funeral. Love Jennifer Connelly esp in A Beautiful Minds, but this is a miss for me. Her face is flawless though. Somehow, the styling reminds me of Daphne Guiness, besides the shoe choice.

    love it – her body is amazing and the shoes are perfect!

    I think she could actually wear a potato sack & I’d still enjoy looking at her, but she keeps it interesting instead & I looove her.

    I usually think her style is bad, but I really love this. Like you said, the tailoring is exceptional. When you wear simple black clothes that’s what you need, the perfect fit. A refreshing twist on the LBD.

    Perfect in every way – welcome back!

    Awesome. Who ever said black was boring? She looks so chic here–elegance with just the slightest touch of gothic romance.

    This woman has an amazing style. This outfit is perfect, I love it from head to toe. Great comeback for sure.

    Somehow I thought this is Miu Miu S12 when I first saw it. I guess because of the velvet necktie.

    What a gorgeous way to wear a LBD. I really like this look.

    Perfection, flawless fit and styling – no random out-of-place pops of colour or uninspiring footwear, the accessories are just right and the rich lippie is a prefect finishing touch. Sexy, classy and elegant, very nice.

    She has such confidence on the red carpet! Glad to see her back. BDOTW contender IMO.

  11. Rebecca Z May 15, 2012 at 18:09 #

    She is beautiful, and the dress is kind of hard to see in the photos, but it doesn’t appear to be anything special.

    I hate black but Jennifer makes me love the look. Not BDOTW but good. At first sight I thought this was Emilio Pucci. The shoes are mouthwatering.

    I like the look, but don’t love it. She will always be the woman who wore that Green Balmain dress and so I’m nto sure anythign else will ever compare.
    Also, ti reminds me so so much of this dress, but a lot nicer imho:

  14. bm May 15, 2012 at 17:26 #

    Yes, what a great comeback.
    and those sexy shoes ? I really WANT THEM NOW !!!
    Will purchase tonight (if i had the budget)

  15. Alina May 15, 2012 at 17:14 #

    I like the look – it has an aristocratic feel.

  16. CreoleLady May 15, 2012 at 17:10 #

    Now this is black done incredibly right. Love from her hair down to her tippy toes. Wonderful.
