She recently signed on to host her own hour-long talk show executive produced by Jada Pinkett Smith.

And it appears Queen Latifah is more than ready to step back into the spotlight.

The 43-year-old dazzled in a figure-hugging glittering blue top and matching skirt as she joined the likes of Valentino and Fe Fendi at the New York City Ballet's Spring 2013 Gala at Lincoln Center in New York on Wednesday.

The actress looked gorgeous in the floor-length metallic blue outfit, which clung to her curves in all the right places.

Latifah wore her highlighted caramel-coloured hair in a glamorous bun atop her head, and she complemented her outfit with metallic blue eyeshadow and royal blue nail polish.

The Grammy winner topped off the look with a stack of diamond bracelets and elegant silver earrings.

Latifah announced earlier this month that she had signed on to host a new hour-long daytime talk show called The Queen Latifah Show.

The show, which begins airing in September on CBS, will feature a mixture of celebrity interviews, human interest stories and live music.

Latifah is clearly looking forward to the show, displaying a ticking clock on her website's homepage counting down until the show's debut.

Also at the New York City Ballet event were fashion designers Valentino and Fe Fendi, who showed off her impossibly thin waist in a blue gown.

Like Latifah, the Fendi heir opted for a glittering gown, which she cinched in with a thick black belt.

Fe wore her brown hair in soft curls around her face and added a pop of colour with a coral lipgloss.
