Catherine Zeta-Jones is back – and she looks more jaw-dropping than ever.
The Welsh actress, 43, wowed on Thursday night as she strolled the red carpet for the Red 2 premiere in Westwood, Calif., in a strapless, lacy black dress that showed off her fit physique.
It was one of Zeta-Jones's first public appearances – and her first on a red carpet – since voluntarily checking in to a treatment facility for further help managing her Bipolar II disorder, which she first revealed in 2011.

Catherine Zeta-Jones is home from treatment for her Bipolar II disorder, after having checked herself into a facility last month for what her husband described as a "10,000 mile check-up."
The Oscar-winning actress was spotted out driving in New York on Tuesday.
Zeta-Jones, 43, bravely revealed her diagnosis in 2011, telling PEOPLE at the time, "This is a disorder that affects millions of people and I am one of them."
She continued, "If my revelation of having Bipolar II has encouraged one person to seek help, then it is worth it. There is no need to suffer silently and there is no shame in seeking help."
