J-Gar is back in action.

Jennifer Garner, who welcomed her third child, Samuel, with husband Ben Affleck on February 27, made her first post-baby red carpet appearance on April 24 at CinemaCon 2012.

Sexy in a Dolce & Gabbana minidress, the hot mom turned heads while promoting her new Disney movie, The Odd Life of Timothy Green. In it she plays one half of a couple who can’t have a baby, so they bury their wishes for a child in a box in their backyard. But whaddya know, the next morning they wake up to find a kid on their doorstep. (No, this is not how Samuel came to be.)

On Thursday Jennifer will step back out to receive the event’s Female Star of the Year Award. In an announcement about the accolade, CinemaCon’s managing director gushed, "[Jennifer] can epitomize the all-American girl, but can also pack the punch of a tough action hero.”

And she can look enviably gorgeous a mere two months after giving birth for the third time. That takes mad talent.
