Mary J. Blige ended the second iteration of her annual Strength of a Woman Festival in style, and we’re swooning over her sexy ensemble.

To close out the weekend, the Queen of R&B took her look to the next level when she donned an all leather look from Schiaparelli. The sexy ensemble featured a cut out leather bodysuit, which she paired with a long leather trench coat and matching leather gloves. She accessorized the look with matching black leather over-the-knee boots and wore gold accessories to complement the look.  As for her hair, she rocked her blonde tresses in an asymmetrical bob, which was parted over to one side of her stunning face.

The beauty also shared the look on her Instagram page for her 6 million IG followers.

Mary’s Strength of a Woman festival was held over the weekend in Atlanta’s State Farm Arena alongside singers like Lauryn Hill, Summer Walker, Muni Long and more.  “I’m so excited to bring our Strength of a Woman Festival & Summit back to Atlanta for its second year,” Mary said of the annual event in a recent interview.

“Having the opportunity to continue to uplift, inspire, and build amongst a community of women is the reason why we created this festival. I’m so grateful for all of the support from our performers and participants and of course Live Nation Urban, Pepsi and our additional partners who are committed to celebrating and creating community for Black women.”
