Dave Chappelle has been tapped to host Rihanna’s third annual Diamond Ball on Sept. 14. The black-tie fundraising gala at Cipriani Wall Street in New York will also feature a performance by Kendrick Lamar on a night dedicated to raising money for the Clara Lionel Foundation, an education, health and emergency response organization founded in 2012 by the singer, in honor of her grandparents, Clara and Lionel Braithwaite.

“I’m thrilled that the incomparable Dave Chappelle will kick things off as the official host of this year’s Diamond Ball and Kendrick Lamar will take the stage for an unforgettable performance,” Rihanna said in a statement announcing this year’s talent. “I’m proud of the Clara Lionel Foundation’s significant impact in the world over the years and deeply grateful for the continued support and commitment to advancing our mission.”

Past Diamond Balls have featured live sets from Rihanna and Lionel Richie, as well as hosts Brad Pitt and Kevin Hart. Proceeds from the fundraiser go to support the foundation’s work on “innovative education projects and scholarships, healthcare programs and local micro grants.”

Rihanna announced the winner of the ‘Young Fashion Designer’ : LVMH Prize 2017 Edition in the presence of jury members including Karl Lagerfeld of Fendi, Dior’s Maria Grazia Chiuri, Louis Vuitton’s Nicolas Ghesquière, Loewe artistic director Jonathan Anderson, Céline’s Phoebe Philo and Kenzo designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim in Paris on June 16th.

Arriving in a Christian Dior dress from Maria Grazia Chiuri’s western-themed Resort collection, Rihanna brought an upbeat energy to the ceremony. She was all smiles as she handed the award to French designer Marine Serre, radiating laidback chic with her white eyelet dress unbuttoned to show a hint of her tattoos and her black bolero tilted to the side.

Rihanna underscored the finalists’ achievement. “Art has no walls or boundaries and is a force that cannot be ignored. It should be defended with courage and confidence. That is what we’re celebrating today,” she said.

“Hard work and a unique drive to create is why you’re all here, and this spectacular achievement in a rising career is what the LVMH Prize stands for. I want you to know that we are honoring all of your brilliant talents today, and making it here is only the beginning of a long and extraordinary journey.

“You designers are the future of fashion and I applaud you. From the bottom of my heart, congratulations, and don’t ever forget what you love, what inspires you and what has brought you this far,” said the singer, who has worn designs by previous winners Jacquemus and Marques’ Almeida.

Rihanna continued her evening in the beautiful city by dining at Ferdi restaurant, check out photos in our candids gallery.

Rihanna was one of the honorees of the evening during the 69th Annual Parsons Benefit last night (May 22nd). She shined bright at the dinner wearing an oversized tan suit by Matthew Adams Dolan, a 2014 graduate of the MFA Fashion Design and Society program at Parsons, whom the singer has worn on several previous occasions.

“You can’t really share the stage with Rihanna, which I just learned outside taking photos on the red carpet,”

said Karen Katz of the Neiman Marcus Group, who was along with Rihanna recognized for their work in performance, design, and fostering social good.

During the live auction, just after a Steven Klein commissioned portrait went for $57,000, the bad girl herself finally spoke. The lot at hand was for two tickets to the Fall 2018 Fenty Puma runway show in New York City, including a one-night stay in a five-star hotel and a Fenty Puma product package, with a portion of the proceeds going to support the Ciara Lionel Foundation. Bidding stalled at $12,000. That’s when Rihanna chimed in.

“Who’s at $12,000?” she quipped, turning to face the crowd from her dinner seat. “Thank you so much, but if anyone wants to beat that, I’ll even style you for the show. And a free selfie with me and Jay Brown, my manager.”

Wouldn’t you know, the lot doubled, closing at $24,000. (Sybil Yurman, wife of jeweler David Yurman, curiously was the ultimate winner).

But Rihanna was just getting warmed up. By the time she took to the stage to accept her award, she had a message for the students of Parsons. Consider February’s Harvard speech just a warmup.

“Tonight is about you young men and women on a global scale, as we know, who are such beacons of inspiration in every way; I don’t think you get celebrated enough,” she began. “You should be celebrated for every aspect of your growth, and your growing pains. You should be celebrated for your creativity, for your fearlessness, for your persistence and determination, for all of the work that you put into building your future, for being different, for not being enough credit, for not having to use eye cream.”

Pause for laughter.

“It was especially important for me to come to Parsons, because you are all the next generation,” she continued. “We need to invest in you. You’re the ones who see the world through fresh eyes and a new perspective. You’re the ones who care about the future of our planet. You’re the ones who will change the current state of the world. And, unfortunately, you are the ones who are often ignored. Your voices aren’t heard often enough, and you are the ones whose voice need to be listened to. I’m here to say that I’m listening, I’m watching, and you are up next.”
