The 29-year-old Nope actress donned a figure-hugging leopard print mini dress with long sleeves and criss-crossed straps with an animal brooch at the neckline. Hairstylist Micah Cook gave the star a sleek and curly blowout, while makeup artist Nordia Cameron-Cunningham opted for golden eyeshadow, eyeliner and lots of lashes.

Palmer and her partner, Darius Jackson, welcomed a son named Leodis in February. Shortly thereafter, she called motherhood the “greatest gig of all.” Her return to music has been eagerly anticipated by fans, as Palmer released her debut album, So Uncool, in late 2007.
