It’s easy enough to rock a little black dress on the red carpet, but for Rihanna, playing it safe isn’t her M.O. Thursday night in Santa Monica, Calif., the ANTI crooner and multi-talented designer showcased her outré sense of style in a stunning, strapless gold Christian Dior gown inside the second annual Diamond Ball for her own Clara Lionel Foundation, which helps improve health and educational services in her home country of Barbados and beyond.
For the philanthropic affair, bad girl RiRi managed to step her most glamorous foot forward yet maintain her rock-star appeal. To let the ornate Dior design speak for itself, she rocked a matching pair of ankle-strap stilettos with few statement jewels, a fringe-detailed necklace, and a fresh-off-the-runway slicked back ‘do.
“It’s overwhelming to see how many of the people that I care about come together to support a cause that is near and dear to my heart,” she told People. So who’s in her inner circle? Guests, who dished a whopping $3,000 each, included Kevin Hart (above), Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, Zendaya, Lionel Richie, Emily Ratajkowski, and Kylie Jenner (below), who was on hand with boyfriend Tyga.
