In the words of Rihanna: 'Shine bright like a diamond, shine bright like a diamond.'

And that's exactly what the 29-year-old did last night at her 3rd annual Clara Lionel Foundation Diamond Ball in New York City.

Wearing a floor-length Ralph & Russo couture dress with a short hem at the front and a V-shaped neckline, the singer frosted her neck in Chopard diamonds. Meanwhile, her jet-black hair was worn loose over her shoulders as she made her entrance into NY's Cipriani Wall Street.

With smudgy black and purple eyeliner and a brown lip, the Barbados-born greeted her guests including the likes of Emily Ratajkowski, Jamie Foxx and new parents Jay-Z and Beyoncé, who enjoyed a rare date night out nearly 13 weeks since welcoming their twins Rumi and Sir Carter.

The 36-year-old 'Formation' singer wore a plunging emerald silk gown with a thigh-high split while her rapper husband wore a suit and bow tie.

And it's safe to say the pair looked undeniably smitten with each other as they partied with the bevvy of A-listers, including Kendrick Lamar who performed at the event.

Ratajkowski meanwhile wore a black strapless gown with gold button detailing and an oversized cuff on the red carpet.

Earlier in the evening, she debuted a short light brown bob which later turned out to be a wig.

Speaking of the 10-year-old anniversary of her hit single 'Umbrella' - which spent 10 weeks at number one in the UK making it the country's longest-running top charter of the 21st century - the star apologised to her British fans.

'I remember the UK blaming me for the rainiest summer in history,' Rihanna recalled. 'I legit remember that. They said every week that it was No. 1, they had rain.'

'I can take the blame,' Rihanna joked. 'I was happy with the number ones.'

It's okay, Rihanna, we forgive you.
