After slaying maternity fashion on the red carpet all awards season long, we were (selfishly) super bummed when Natalie Portman rightfully missed the grand Oscars finale, because it was a wee bit too close to the birth of daughter Amalia Millepied.

Cut to two months later, however, and the Jackie actress is back on the red carpet for her first post-baby appearance and looking more fab than ever. The 35-year-old wowed last night as the host of Dior’s Cannes garden party.

With 150 guests in attendance at the party’s Château de la Colle Noir, Portman stood out from the crowd in a crushed navy blue velvet gown by Dior with fluttering sleeves, black peep-toes, and a simple Fred Leighton cuff.

The Dior brand ambassador and mother of two kept her beauty as flawless as her gown with a simple updo and fresh-faced makeup.

Portman’s was just one of a barrage of stunning styles spotted at Cannes, with stars walking the red carpet in jaw-dropping designs that left us breathless (we’re looking at you, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajowski, and Elle Fanning!). Still, her sheer elegance and grace has been sorely missed these last few months.

Welcome back, Natalie.
