This ain't Texas...it's New York Fashion Week.

And Beyoncé laid her cards down, down, down by making a surprise appearance at the Luar show in Bushwick on Feb. 13 (See all of the best fashion week looks here).

In true Bey fashion, she didn't miss a style beat.

The "Texas Hold 'Em" singer shined as bright as the flashing lights with a bedazzled gray blazer dress that featured giant silver gemstones and sequined beading all over.

She paired her cowgirl couture look with coordinating thigh-high boots and a diamond-embellished hood that she wore under a crisp white cowboy hat. 

The Grammy winner not only shocked everyone with her presence, but she stuck around, 'round, 'round the show with her mom Tina Knowles—who armed herself with a bright red lip and all-black look that she styled with brown leather gloves and an assortment of gold rings and bracelet bangles.

So, what inspired the mother-daughter duo's rare outing? The two celebrated Solange Knowles' son Daniel "Julez" Smith Jr. make his runway debut.

The "Cranes in the Sky" singer, who shares the 19-year-old with ex-husband Daniel Smith, was also at the show and sat across from Beyoncé and their mother.

Of course, Beyoncé's unexpected NYFW appearance comes off the heels of her internet-breaking Act II album announcement.

The "Alien Superstar" singer dropped the news at the 2024 Super Bowl on Feb. 11 following her Verizon ad and simultaneously released two country singles, "Texas Hold 'Em" and "16 Carriages."

It's clear the Texas native is going back to her roots with her forthcoming album, but she's keeping a tight lip on what fans can expect.

However, Bey's "Texas Hold 'Em" producer Killah B recently teased a few details on the project.

"Let's just say she's on the approach of shocking the world," Killah B told TMZ in an interview published Feb. 13, hinting that her guest collaborations will be unexpected. "I'll let your imagination decide what that means."

As for whether that includes a possible Taylor Swift collaboration, the producer played coy, teasing, "You guys are gonna have to wait and see!"
