Rihanna In Zac Posen – First Annual Diamond Ball for the Clara Lionel Foundation Performance

Rihanna and The Clara Lionel Foundation Presents The Inaugural Diamond Ball - Inside

Rihanna performed on stage during her Diamond Ball for The Clara Lionel Foundation held at The Vineyard on Thursday (December 11) in Beverly Hills, California.

A big performance needs a big gown and they don’t come much bigger than a Zac Posen gown.

Having worn a gown by the same designer for the red carpet, she opted to go bigger, donning a midnight-blue duchesse and taffeta strapless ball gown from the Resort 2015 collection, which dominated the stage.

Opting for yet another stunning Chopard necklace, this Met Gala-worthy gown was brimming with both drama and glamour – i.e. it couldn’t have been a more perfect fit for Rihanna.

Rihanna In Zac Posen – First Annual Diamond Ball for the Clara Lionel Foundation

Rihanna In Zac Posen - Inaugural Diamond Ball for the Clara Lionel Foundation

Rihanna hosted the First Annual Diamond Ball for the Clara Lionel Foundation held at The Vineyard on Thursday (December 11) in Beverly Hills, California.

Opting to take a night off from wearing Tom Ford (thankfully, I hear you cry), the singer went for high glamour, wearing a very distinctive Zac Posen Fall 2014 off-the-shoulder gown in a lush rose hue.

The gown is simply breathtaking and the colour is so gorgeous against her caramel skin, but what makes this look for me is her stunning Chopard tourmaline and diamond necklace with a matching ring and stud earrings.

She also wore a ruby cuff, but it gets lost against the backdrop of her hand tattoo.

Working a slicked-back ponytail and dark cherry hue lip, does this rank as one of Rihanna’s best looks this year?

Rihanna In Jenny Packham – Edward Enninful British Fashion Awards After-Party

Rihanna In Jenny Packham - Edward Enninful British Fashion Awards After-Party

Rihanna and Naomi Campbell attended a party in celebration of Edward Enninful – who took home the Isabella Blow Award for Fashion Creator at the British Fashion Awards – held at the Oscar Wilde Bar, Hotel Cafe Royal, on Monday (December 1) in London, England.

While Naomi opted to wear the same Alexander McQueen gown she wore to the event, Rihanna chose to change out of the Stella McCartney blazer she wore on the red carpet.

Opting for a distinctly British label, she wore a gorgeous Jenny Packham Fall 2014 ivory crystal embellished slip dress, keeping her hair up in the chic bun while removing some of the heavy styling that accompanied her previous look.

I know many hated her red carpet look, but I loved it. This look concludes a great night for her, going from bold and sexy to sexy and sweet.

She’s on a roll and she can do no wrong for me.

Rihanna In Stella McCartney – 2014 British Fashion Awards

Rihanna In Stella McCartney - 2014 British Fashion Awards

Rihanna also attended the 2014 British Fashion Awards on Monday (December 1) at England’s London Coliseum.

The boundaries-pushing songstress again played up the provocative angle in her Stella McCartney oversized, plunging tuxedo blazer—and little else—save for black stockings and some serious bling.

Her diamond choker by Giuseppe Zanotti was plenty attention-grabbing, if perhaps unnecessary. But, even so, her neon-lime nails managed to get a piece of the action, too.

While the suggestive ensemble was signature Rihanna (and, in fact, she looked as if she might have simply borrowed Emma Watson’s coat from earlier), her more natural makeup and simply styled updo was altogether refreshing, allowing her true beauty to shine.

For that reason alone, I’m a fan.

Rihanna In Altuzarra – MAC Cosmetics And MAC AIDS Fund World Premiere Of ‘It’s Not Over’ Film

Rihanna In Altuzarra - MAC Cosmetics And MAC AIDS Fund World Premiere Of 'It's Not Over' Film

Rihanna attended the premiere of ‘It’s Not Over’ presented by MAC Cosmetics and MAC AIDS Fund held at Quixote Studios on Tuesday (November 18) in Los Angeles, California.

The singer wore an Altuzarra Spring 2015 skirt suit rendered in a pristine pink and white gingham print.

Although the look is surprisingly (for Rihanna) modest and elegant, it still features the right amount of sex appeal courtesy of the central slit.

An array of jewels plus her tattoos on display give this look an edge, along with that MAC deep berry hue applied to her lips.

A simple updo and Altuzarra ‘Cocco’ sandals from the same collection rounded out her look.

Slick and sexy with an edge – just how I like the sassy singer.
