New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Rihanna's 3rd annual Diamond Ball was a sheer success as celebrities dug deep in their pockets to help Hurricane Harvey
and Irma victims as well as programs to promote education and the arts all around the world.
The event, benefiting The Clara Lionel Foundation, took place in New York Thursday
(Sept. 14) with a bevy of guests like JAY-Z and Beyoncé, Cardi B, Lala Anthony, Jamie Foxx
DiCaprio. Founded by Rihanna
the event hold auctions of luxurious items and getaways with the proceeds going to the foundation. The foundation was created in 2012 and named after her grandparents Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.
Wearing a gorgeous black Ralph & Russo Couture gown and diamond accessories from Chopard (including a diamond necklace from her Rihanna
Loves Chopard collection), Bad Gal turned heads at the gala, which was organized to raise funds and awareness for CLF's global efforts to support education, health, and emergency response programs around the world.
But RiRi — who brought her family along for the special event — wasn't the only one shining. The stars also came out for the evening, including Kendrick Lamar, who performed "HUMBLE." and "DNA." at the Dave Chappelle-hosted function. RiRi didn't join Kung Fu Kenny for "LOYALTY.," but she did sing along with friends at her table.
The Clara Lionel Foundation was founded in 2012 by Rihanna
to honor her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.
