Kate Beckinsale has made her much-anticipated return to the red carpet after her weeks-long hospital stay earlier this year.

The Underworld actress attended the inaugural King's Trust Gala in New York City on May 2, an event supporting King Charles' longtime charity formerly known as The Prince's Trust, and its expansion to the U.S.

"It's been a rough year," Beckinsale told People during the event. "Because my parents have both been unwell and my cat ... it's been a bunch of things. So that's why it's nice to come and see friends and have a little perspective. Everyone's had a bit of a rough year, I think."

Beckinsale was in the hospital for several weeks between March and April, and although she documented the stay on multiple occasions on Instagram, she has since deleted all posts relating to her illness. She never revealed the cause of her hospital stay, though at one point she did post a selfie in which she was wearing a t-shirt that read, "Tummy Troubles Survivor."

At the red-carpet event, Beckinsale was glowing, her hair styled into the bounciest high ponytail I've ever seen and topped with a glamorous black bow.

The star wore what I would describe if I was being whimsical as a glam take on a bridal look, an intricate, layered, one-shoulder white organza gown with cutouts and a high leg slit. She paired it with sky-high white platform sandals and diamond drop earrings, and carried a glittery green clutch to match her bright green, gem-adorned manicure. A whole vibe.

Other King's Trust Gala attendees included Lionel Richie, Kate Moss, Charlotte Tilbury, Emily Ratajkowski, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, Laverne Cox, Sam Smith, Edward Enningful, Dominic West, Teyana Taylor, Irina Shayk, Iris Law, and Ashley Graham. Whew!
