The strapless floor-length ensemble gave her a beautiful shape as it flowed with her, which she paired with matching gold accessories and a red lip.

She wore the grand outfit to support her friend Debbie Allen for the opening of her Dance Academy, sharing a snapshot of herself on her Instagram while at it.

The academy is a part of the latest project of Bridgerton creator and television mogul Shonda Rhimes and her Rhimes Performing Arts Center in Los Angeles.

While comments on Jada's post were limited, a few did take the opportunity to compliment her outfit, with one fan writing: "Stunning! A Goddess," and another simply dropping a series of heart and flame emojis. Debbie herself commented: "You came to SLAY, Honey! LOVE YOU & THANK YOU!"

The appearance marked Jada's first since the infamous Oscars ceremony where her husband Will Smith slapped Chris Rock after he made a joke about her appearance.

The Matrix star hasn't expressly spoken out about the incident, with her breaking her silence the day after with an Instagram post saying: "This is a season for healing and I'm here for it."
