Rihanna stepped out in style to honor Tom Ford at the amfAR Inspiration Gala in Hollywood on Wednesday. The “Stay” singer turned heads in a white Tom Ford gown with a high slit and nipple pasties while mingling with Justin Timberlake, host Gwyneth Paltrow, and Miley Cyrus, who opted for a black bondage dress.
RiRi presented the designer with amfAR’s Award of Inspiration. “Everyone looks good in Tom Ford,” she told the chic crowd. “Over the past 20 years, Tom Ford has been honored with every major fashion award there is. Tonight, we honor him both for his incredible talent and for what he stands for. We honor him for doing good while making us look good.”
She supported the cause by dropping $35,000 on a pair of Harry Winston diamond link earrings and $100,000 on the photograph “Elizabeth Taylor at the Eden Roc” by Willy Rizzo, with all proceeds benefiting AIDS research. Timberlake also opened his wallet, bidding $80,000 on a Damien Hirst painting.
Chris Martin kicked off the evening with a performance, while Diana Ross closed it out with her anthem “I’m Coming Out.”
