Rihanna attends the 2nd Annual Diamond Ball hosted by Rihanna and The Clara Lionel Foundation at The Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California.
Well what else are you going to do for something called “The Diamond Ball” but to arrive serving up some serious Dynasty realness? The name practically demands for a gal to get her Alexis on.
And while we can say we’re impressed by her commitment, we don’t think we like this gown all that much. It may be Dior Couture but it looks pretty damn bridal shop from where we’re sitting. No mortal woman can be expected to effectively work that much gold satin for a photo op. Eventually, it starts looking cheap, puckery and a little crass. Also: The hair is all wrong. This gown called for an up ‘do.
Sorry, Miss Ri. Kudos on the effort, but this look just doesn’t come together for us.
