Sandra Bullock returns to the limelight at 'Minions' world premiere

#SandraBullock is queen of yellow carpet at #Minions world premiere

Sandra Bullock makes being a super-villain look good!

The actress stepped out on the yellow carpet Wednesday for the London premiere of her new animated film, "Minions."

The Oscar winner donned a paisley print Stella McCartney dress and Saint Laurent heeled sandals to debut the new family-friendly comedy. Bullock voices pre-Gru super-villain Scarlet Overkill, who is bent on world domination. (Because who isn't these days?)

Bullock was joined at the premiere by a few of her goggled yellow costars and the film's co-directors Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin. Her vocal costars Allison Janney, Jon Hamm and Michael Keaton were not in attendance, but something tells us all eyes (goggled and otherwise) would have been on the brunet star.

It's the "Gravity" actress' first public event in more than a year: Bullock had a frightening home invasion in June 2014 and last made a public appearance at Spike TV's Guys' Choice Awards the day before it happened. In October, she was photographed while filming "Our Brand Is Crisis" in New Orleans.

In April, the 50-year-old star was named People magazine's most beautiful woman of 2015 and graced the cover of the annual issue.

"Minions" hits theaters on July 10.
