Rihanna’s held her annual Diamond Ball marking its fourth year and continued to make a name as one of the industry’s white-hot and must-attend parties — all while raising money for charity.
The pop star, fashionista and makeup mogul held the black-tie gala for her Clara Lionel Foundation on Thursday in New York City, where Childish Gambino performed and Tiffany Haddish bid $75,000 on earrings.
The “Girls Trip” superstar, per usual, was in an funny mood at Cipriani Wall Street. When the Chopard earrings were being auctioned, the recent Emmy winner told her competition: “Let me have something in this world.” The earrings were valued at $112,000. Haddish watched Gambino, who performed “This Is America,” ”3005″ and more songs, like a die-hard fan right in front of the stage, evening yelling her catch phrase — “she ready” — while the Emmy-winning “Atlanta” actor performed his Grammy-winning song, “Redbone.”
Issa Rae, the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated creator of HBO’s “Insecure,” hosted the event and happily told the audience: “Rihanna knows my name y’all!”
Trevor Noah, Odell Beckham Jr., Nicky Hilton, Paris Hilton, Normani, Joan Smalls, and A$AP Rocky were among the famous faces who attended the event for Rihanna’s organization, which promotes education and arts globally and assists emergency response programs. The 30-year-old singer started the foundation in 2012 and named it after her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaiteanthe.
