Celebrities Shine at Rihanna’s Fifth Annual Diamond Ball
Rihanna has come back with the Diamond Ball for the fifth year in a row.
Celebrities gathered around to support Rihanna’s cause and reason behind this event. In 2012 she created the Clara Lionel Foundation which now provides added support from the Diamond Ball. The foundations’ sole purpose is to aid in education, health, and emergency response programs around the world. This year the gala brought in a lot of celebrities to raise awareness and funds for the foundation.
This year, comedian Seth Meyers took the stage and hosted the event. DJ Khalid and Pharrell later took over with their grand performances. All guests who attended made sure to step out with their best formal attire. From big ball gowns, to sleek tuxedos, the fashion in the Diamond Ball is one many people look forward to.
DJ Khaled shared how much he respects Rihanna for how much of a genuine person she is.
