It’s always a pleasure to see a real diva on the red carpet.

Natalie Cole looked beautiful as she arrived at the Silver Hill Hospital 80th Anniversary Gala in New York City as the Mistress of Ceremonies.

The Gala raised over $1.2 million, which will go to provide financial assistance for adolescents and young adults who desperately need residential treatment but are without adequate resources to cover the costs.

Natalie was radiant on the red carpet wearing a Dennis Basso gown.

Her blacked beaded and tulle gown with Swarovski crystals has the same texture as Look 35 from the Fall 2010 collection.

She added a fur stole, a satin sash tied to the waist and dazzling earrings to compete her look.
