Rihanna & Jimmy Kimmel

Rihanna hosted the first ever Diamond Ball supporting her Clara Lionel Foundation at The Vineyard in Beverly Hills. The Vineyard, donated by the Victorino Noval Foundation, has been called one of the most beautiful properties in the nation and is estimated to have a value of around 1 billion USD.

The guest list read like the Who's Who of Hollywood. Friends that came out to support included Salma Hayek and her husband Francois-Henri Pinault, Victorino Noval, Ellen Pompeo and husband Chris Ivery, Brad Pitt, Jimmy Kimmel, Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Big Sean, Tyrese Gibson, Fabulous (the rapper), and Nikki Reed.

The evenings entertainment was provided by Jimmy Kimmel and Brad Pitt. Guests were treated to dinner while serenaded by a wonderful violinist. Brad Pitt was almost more funny that Jimmy Kimmel as he went through Rihanna's resume, joking about how someone could succumb to such a life?
