The 8th Annual ESSENCE Black Women in Music event saw some of the hottest stars come out in some fabulous threads, but the lady of the night took things to a new level.

BWIM honoree Erykah Badu hit the scene in a breathtaking look by Ashi Studio.

The black gown was complete with cascading ruffles, and a one-shouldered top with mesh sleeves.

Badu paired the look with her signature tall top hat, glasses and eye-catching gold rings.

We knew Badu would bring something fresh and unexpected to the table. We’re in love with this show-stopping fashion moment.

Yes, Queen Erykah!
