The inaugural Diamond Ball was held last night on the sprawling grounds of The Vineyard in Beverly Hills. The annual event was created to raise funds for the Clara Lionel Foundation. The foundation is a charitable organisation established in honour of the singer’s grandparents and it raises funds for cancer treatment as well as education, arts and culture. This is a cause that is very dear to Rihanna’s heart. The Diamond Ball was attended by the top echelon of Hollywood and guests included Brad Pitt and Salma Hayek. Comedian Jimmy Kimmel played the role of host throughout the night and there was an auction and a special performance by Rihanna herself. Here’s a look at what the lady of the moment wore.
On the red carpet Rihanna looked beautiful in a gown by Zac Posen. The rose-coloured, mermaid dress, which is from the Fall/Winter 2014 collection [look 17], has a v neckline and off-the-shoulder sleeves. Manolo Blahnik‘s classic BB pumps in dark pink suede ($595) complemented her dress. In Rihanna’s right ear she wore Repossi‘s an triple row ear cuff with pavé white diamonds Repossi from the Berbère collection. Rih also rocked some outstanding pieces by Chopard. These included a diamond necklace with an exceptional 123ct pear-shaped rubellite, a 21ct ruby cuff, and a pear-shaped rubellite ring with tulip detail. Both the ring and necklace are from the 2012 Red Carpet Collection and you can take a closer look at them below. Contact Chopard via their website if you are interested in purchasing.
Later in the evening Rihanna took to the stage for a medley of some of her best hits including We Found Love and Umbrella. The performance was enhanced by a full orchestra and new musical arrangements. She opted for another dress by Zac Posen, the reigning king of modern ball gowns. This navy dress is from his Resort 2015 collection [look 20] and it features a corseted bust with a sweetheart neckline, peplum detail at the waist and a full skirt.
