First, she looked like a superhero in a two-toned black and white number with ruffled detail along the side. A very modern look that she styled with black pumps and geometric chunky white earrings.
She was so obviously feeling herself in that number too! Just peep her magnificent pose!
Later on for the party, the 32-year-old singer traded in her monochrome look for an off-shoulder gray belted piece featuring wide-legged pants. She kept her black pumps but swapped her white earrings for a pair of Maxior swinging diamond ones, and added a Gilan diamond ring.
She nailed it!
