Rihanna in lace Alexis Mabille at her Diamond Ball fundraiser: stunning or no?

Clara Lionel Foundations Diamond Ball

Here are photos from Rihanna’s annual Diamond Ball, her mega-fundraiser for her Clara Lionel Foundation. Rihanna’s Diamond Ball gets bigger every year, and a lot of her celebrity friends came out to support her this year. Chopard is one of the sponsors, which is why Rihanna wore some absolutely gigantic Chopard jewels. LOOK AT HER EARRINGS. My God. As for the dress… I dislike it, but I also accept that it’s perfectly “Rihanna.” Only she would pick out a white lace catsuit with a weird satin mullet-esque dress overlay. The dress is by Alexis Mabille.

Issa Rae and Donald Glover. I have no idea if they’re a thing or what, but they did pose together, and then they posed separately on the carpet. I don’t know, truly! Issa looks amazing. Update: Issa and Donald are almost definitely not a thing, as many of you pointed out that he’s in a quiet relationship with the mother of his children. Issa and Donald are probably just friends who briefly posed together at the event. My bad.

Paris and Nicky Hilton were there. Yeah, I don’t know why either.

    She is so beautiful and fierce, whatever she chooses to wear! Her face is beyond stunning.

  2. Renee2 says:

    Donald Glover is married and has two children.

    Doesn’t Paris Hilton hate Black people??

    ETA: Rhianna looks good!! Her outfit is whack but I like that she has such fun with fashion.

  3. Missy says:

    I thought Donald glover was in a relationship with the mother of his children…I don’t think him and Issa are an item, but I could be wrong

  4. Dorothy#1 says:

    I seriously have the hots for Donald Glover. Can we do more pictures of him?? The way he moves…

  5. lower-case deb says:

    at first i was like Meh.
    and then i scroll down and see all the usual-suspect dresses, the boring cuts and… after the Riri punch, everything just looks so boring… doubly boring. kudos to Riri to never go the safe boring route.

    plus… with all that natural charisma oozing out… why not! go big or go home!

  6. Babs says:

    I don’t like the fit of Issa’s dress.
    Rihanna looks regal as always.

  7. Prissa says:

    I like how Rhi’s dress resembles a big bow. I like it.

  8. Nancy says:

    I stan for RiRi, but possibly for the first time, this isn’t my favorite outfit. She looks like a giant present. The bottom works, but not the top. Forgive me. Her face is still as radiant as a summer sunrise in Barbados with flicks of hope bursting everywhere. I did say STAN. Another first, I didn’t hate Paris’ look. She looks soft and feminine and since Kim K thinks she stole her shine years ago, she proves you don’t need to buy hippo hips to look as Paris would once say “hot.”

  9. Milla says:

    Smalls looks perfect. Like an angel. Riri’s dress or whatever that’s called is hideous. Huge and all over the place. She’s beautiful but i hate to see her in such over the top clothes. No point.

    • Stacy Dresden says:

      That color purple is to die for and she looks heavenly, I agree! I like Rihanna’s dress. It is insane but it grew on me after I stared at it for a few moments. Her lipstick/gloss is fantastic also. I would like to try a couple products from her Fenty Beauty line.

  10. Janet Maina says:

    Issa was the host of the evening and Donald was the main entertainment of the night.

    • Shazza says:

      Donald actually made an appearance on Issa’s earlier Youtube show ‘Adventures of an Awkward Black Girl’. She went out on a date with someone and he ended up introducing her to Donald.

  11. Got says:

    I really like her makeup here. She looks so beautiful like a doll it’s unreal. If anyone knows what makeup products she used please tell

  12. JanetFerber says:

    She slays. Love the entire look. I’d like her to run for political office.

  13. minx says:

    Gorgeous, head to toe.

  14. neocleo says:

    I often do not like what Rihanna wears but I can never argue with that face! The diamonds she is wearing on her ears look like they weigh 1/2 pound apiece.

  15. InquisitiveNewt says:

    Only Rihanna could get away with wearing something that audacious and looking that gorgeous. Total girl crush.

  16. newp says:

    Rihanna’s look is a mess, as usual. Not buying the Emperor’s new clothes when it comes to her. And why did she invite Paris Racist Hilton to her event? She was at her birthday party too. Really disappointed in Rihanna for that.

  17. bella says:

    I love Riri’s look–Gorgeous!! I can’t believe I am going to say this but I also love the Hilton girls dresses, specifically Paris’ dress. I love that dress and would like to know who the designer of that dress as it is so beautiful. Also, as many of the other posters said–isn’t Paris a racist??? I saw a clip of her when she was still in high school saying racist things! She is gross but I love her dress.

    • Killjoy says:

      Paris’s is my favorite, after Rihanna. She honestly looks great. Hopefully she is working on inner improvement as well…

  18. Veronica S. says:

    Anyone else….no. But she’s got so much personality, it’s hard not go along with whatever she wears.

    Issa Rae is gorgeous. I remember watching “Awkward Black Girl” all those years back, and I’m so thrilled her career has been nothing but upwards trajectory.

  19. Pandy says:

    Oddly enough I like her outfit! The diamonds are drool worthy lol. Tiffany looks great as well. Rest are blech. And who asked Parasite and Icky?

  20. tw says:

    What is up with Paris’s pose? She looks like she’s about to be dipped. And Nikki’s bodice is too low. There’ s like 2 feet of exposed chest. I’m so confused by the surface area.
