Beautiful mind AND body!

Stepping out at Tuesday's "Every Woman, Every Child" UN reception at NYC's Grand Hyatt Hotel, Jennifer Connelly walked her first red carpet since giving birth to daughter Agnes Lark Bettany May 31.

The stunning Oscar-winning actress, 40, wasn't shy to reveal a bit of her post-baby weight loss in a black sheer top (with a black bra underneath) tucked into flattering, pleated black pants.

Connelly told Us Weekly she felt compelled to step out for the reception, which relates to a cause near and dear to her heart. "I gave birth to my daughter Agnes three and a half months ago, like many women, I gave birth to her at home," the Dilemma star, who works with the Save the Children foundation, told Us.

(Agnes was born via schedule home water birth at the NYC apartment she shares with husband Paul Bettany.)

"But unlike many women around the world, my birth was attended by a skilled midwife," she continued. "I'm very excited to be here to support Save the Children and to support mothers around the world that don't have access to health care."

Agnes joins big brothers Kai, 13 (his dad is Connelly's photographer ex David Dugan) and 7-year-old Stellan, Connelly's son with The Tourist star Bettany, 40, whom Connelly wed in 2003.
