The Jamaican sprinter, who is the reigning Olympic and World champion, edged out Tori Bowie of the United States (11.05sec) and compatriot Natasha Morrison (11.22sec).
Fraser-Pryce, 28, was running for the first time since setting the season's best time in the sprint at Paris a month ago.
Her performance on Thursday was a resounding reminder to her rivals just three weeks away from the World Championships in Beijing where she will be the defending champion.
The Jamaican star is also the reigning world champion in the 200m and 4x100m relay.
