It was anther successful year for Rihanna’s star studded diamond ball.

On Thursday night, celebrities put on their finest garments and attended the pop star’s annual Clara Lionel Foundation’s Diamond Ball in New York City’s Cipriani Wall Street.

Rihanna, the lady of the night, stunned in a gorgeous sweetheart necklace gown, paired with gorgeous Chopard diamonds perfectly placed around her neck.

The soiree also just so happened to be Beyonce’s first red carpet appearance since welcoming twins Rumi and Sir back in June. The flawless singer (pun intended) showed off her post baby bod in a stunning silk green dress.

Her husband, Jay Z, was also in tow and was dapper in a classic black and white tuxedo.

Beyonce, who took a night off from changing diapers and putting kids to bed, also took a quick moment to post alongside RiRi.

Cardi B. and Lala Anthony also attended the coveted event. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper sported a long, soft long baby blue gown while Lala Anthony showed off her curves in a sequined Yousef Aljasmi dress.

The organization, which was founded in 2012, is honor of Badgalriri’s grandparents, Clara and Lionel Brathwaite. The foundation is to help pour back in to underprivileged communities around the world.

5 Reasons You Need To Know Daveed Diggs

Published

If you don’t know the name Daveed Diggs you will now! The Oakland native is definitely one to watch in Hollywood. Here are five reasons why.

1. He has already taken Broadway by storm.

In 2016 Diggs nabbed a Tony and a Grammy award for his role as Marquis de Lafayette/ Thomas Jefferson in “Hamilton.” Believe it or not Diggs didn’t even audition for the role. While substitute teaching in Marin County, CA he met Hamilton’s eventual star and creator Lin Manuel-Miranda and director, Thomas Kail who invited him to join their free-style rap group and later helped them craft the fast-rapping revolutionary. 

2. He’s funny. 

Diggs is proving he’s also got some amazing comedy chops with two memorable recurring sitcom roles: one as Perry, the crush du jour for Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) on Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and the other on ABC’s black-ish as Johan, the free-spirited brother of Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross). In fact, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris wrote the role for Diggs after being “blown away” by his performance on stage.

3. His first feature film Wonder is in theaters now.

In the film based on the New York Times best-selling novel of the same name, Diggs plays Mr. Browne the fifth grade teacher at the school where lead Jacob Tremblay attends. Diggs landed the role after wrapping his run in “Hamilton” and told HH it was like a crash course in film acting alongside Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson.

4. He’s a rapper. 

His experimental noise rap group Clipping has garnered a major cult following on Youtube. Their LP CLPPNG was an Album Of The Week back in 2014. And in 2016 the trio performed on The Late Late Show with James Corden to promote the release of their six-track EP Wriggle. 

5. He is executive producer of ABC’s The Mayor.  

The show about a struggling young rapper (Brandon Micheal Hall) who runs for local office (and wins) to boost his popularity, debuted this Fall and already is garnering wave reviews. Not surprisingly Diggs and his Clipping bandmates William Hutson and Jonathan Snipes, also produce all the music for the show.
