Smokin' hot, indeed!

For the first time since splitting with beau Bradley Cooper last month, Renee Zellweger hit the red carpet Tuesday.

The Bridget Jones star, 41, sizzled in a red pea coat at the Tommy Hilfiger Limited Edition Bag Launch For Breast Health International in Milan, Italy. See more photos of Renee from the event.

As first reported, Zellweger and Cooper, 36, parted ways after nearly two years together in March.

"Renee took some time out to be a great girlfriend and see if this is what it took to make a relationship work," an insider close to the actress tells Us about the couple. "But it was just not working out."

While Tuesday was Zellweger's first official event since the split, the Academy Award winner has hardly been a homebody. Just days after news of their breakup broke, Zellweger stopped by pal Sandra Bullock's NYC pad on March 19. Later that night she attended a friend's birthday bash in a little black dress, where onlooker described her as "smokin' hot." And Zellweger was also one of the many A-list guests at Reese Witherspoon's March 26 wedding to Jim Toth
