Last night Rihanna hosted the second annual Diamond Ball, a charity event to benefit her Clara Lionel Foundation, which is named for her grandparents. As you can see from the pictures, she went glam for the red carpet.
The Diamond Ball charged $3000 per ticket, and plenty of people turned out, so it sounds like the event was quite a success! The Clara Lionel Foundation’s goal is to improve the quality of life for people around the world. Rihanna said this about the event:
It’s overwhelming to see so many of the people that I care about come together to support a cause that is near and dear to my heart.”
Guests included Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, Kylie Jenner and boyfriend Tyga, Zendaya, and Emily Ratajkowski. Lionel Ritchie performed, and comedian Kevin Hart hosted the event.
It’s great to hear that the event went so well!
You know I’ve gotta ask, though: what do you think of Rihanna’s gold gown? She certainly dressed appropriately for an event called The Diamond Ball!
