Last night was the second annual Diamond Ball benefitting the Clara Lionel Foundation. As you would have learned from last year’s event, Rihanna created this black tie fundraiser in support of the charitable organisation. The Clara Lionel Foundation was created in 2012 in honour of her grandparents after her grandmother Clara Brathwaite passed away from cancer. The 2014 Diamond Ball raised $2,000,000 that was put towards the Clara Brathwaite Center for Oncology and Nuclear Medicine at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in the pop star’s homeland. The foundation is also dedicated to bettering education and health in communities across the globe.
Last night’s event was another star-studded affair hosted by Kevin Hart with a special performance by the legendary Lionel Richie. Not only was Rihanna surrounded by close family and friends on the special night but celebrities in attendance included Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, Kylie Jenner and Zendaya. They all came together to raise approximately $3,000,000 for the foundation. Job well done! Now here’s a look at what Rihanna wore.
Mel Ottenberg was the mastermind behind the singer’s gorgeous look. She donned a custom strapless dress by Christian Dior couture. The pale gold gown features a sweetheart neckline, a cinched waist, draped detail down the front and a front slit. Rih topped it off with a floor-length cape draped around her shoulders. The matching pumps are also by Dior.
Rihanna’s jewellery included several anklets by Jacquie Aiche (shop the current collection) and a custom “Fenty” ear cuff by Jennifer Fisher (purchase your own here, $300). But the stand outs for the night were obviously her Cartier pieces.
Above is the stunning diamond necklace from Cartier’s Diamants Classiques collection. The necklace is made of platinum and brilliant cut white diamonds. The price is available on request so visit cartier.us for more information on this beautiful piece.
