Here comes the bride!

Newlywed Reese Witherspoon just returned from her honeymoon, but she's already back to work and looking glamorous at her first public event since her wedding day.

Witherspoon, 35, posed with costar Robert Pattinson, wearing her new wedding ring and dazzling in a white Jason Wu cocktail dress accented with black beading. The newlywed says being referred to as Mrs. Toth now is simply "great."

Also garnering praise from the actress was Pattinson himself – despite his runny nose during their steamier scenes in the film.

"Even if this guy is sick, I'm so lucky. We had great time," Witherspoon told reporters. "Not only is he super sexy and obviously incredibly handsome, but he's really a lovely, nice person."

Now that Witherspoon and Pattinson, 24, are pals, the Oscar winner jokingly says she's bummed out that she hasn't received a wedding gift from the Twilight star.

"Not yet and I am waiting," she says with a laugh. "Tell him tick-tock, I am waiting!"

Water for Elephants hits theaters April 22.
