Kim Kardashian in Balenciaga for Rihanna's Diamond Ball ...


Here are some photos from last night’s first annual Diamond Ball benefiting The Clara Lionel Foundation, which is Rihanna’s foundation. She named it for her grandparents and the foundation aims to “improve the quality of life for communities globally in the areas of health, education, arts, and culture.” Plus, it’s just a nice opportunity for Rihanna to play dress up, right?

So let’s start with Rihanna – she wore this Zac Posen gown with Chopard jewels. I’ve been trying to figure out what that reddish stone is. My Twitter research says that the stone is a “rubellite”. With stones like rubies, sapphires, emeralds and the like, the darker the stone, the more expensive. This rubellite is so light, I mistook it for a morganite (no disrespect, I have a morganite ring and I love it). This stone is 200 carats, which is… something. I can’t say I’m a fan of the Posen gown though – I always think his gowns look over-designed.


Next up: Kim Kardashian came to the event with her mom, because Kanye has pretty much abandoned her. Kim wore this completely fug Alexander Wang for Balenciaga. This was supposed to be worn by someone tall and thin, you know? Kim just makes it look so cheap, like a fisherman caught a drowsy hooker in his net and someone glitterbombed the whole mess. She needs to stop with that hairstyle too.



And finally, Salma Hayek was there with her husband. Salma probably wore the best dress of the event – hers is Alexander McQueen. Very pretty.
