The Best of Diamond Ball 2017

Rihanna has done it again. Last night at her 3rd annual Diamond Ball, the singer raised almost $1 million dollars for her Clara Lionel non- profit foundation. The event has drawn heavy industry hitters throughout the past 3 years and has been a spectacle for fashion lovers.

Last night, I browsed through the hashtag (#DiamondBall) to see some of our favorite celebs pull out their best dressed. Keep reading to see some of my favorite looks of the night and spoiler alert: my favorite was the Bodak Yellow queen, Cardi B.

Starting with the woman of the hour, or should I say year because Riri has been pulling out all the stops. She came dressed in a black dress featuring a short front, showing off her long legs. Surprisingly she wore black sheer stockings with open toe heels to complete the look.Mother of 3 and Houston native, Beyonce wore a emerald green silk wrap dress. The dress featured crystal encrusted cuffs that she allowed to be the focus as far as accessories were concerned. Simple dangling earrings and pointed toe shoes (which she later changed) were the finishing touches of her outfit.

My personal fave for the night was everyone’s favorite New Yorker, Cardi B. If you haven’t been following Cardi’s story, you’re really missing out. She has been extremely open about her past and the things she’s done to get where she is but I’ll save that for another article. She showed up and showed out in a princess like tiffany blue gown.

Lala Anthony came in a floor length number. The dress had crystals as far as the eyes could see and she looked GOODT. You can’t deny her recent glow up on social media- you just can’t. For some reason this dress reminds me of the 1920’s flipper girls except more up to date and form fitting.

That’s all I have for now! As always, from me to you, love
