Cardi B slayed the red carpet of Rihanna’s Diamond Ball, then labelled the event ‘genius’.

The I Like It singer looked incredible on Thursday night in a strapless, light pink organza gown designed by Georges Hobeika.

The annual Diamond Ball, now in its fifth year, raises millions to help support the Clara Lionel Foundation, which provides global education, health and emergency response initiatives.

Cardi took to Twitter on Thursday evening to show her support for the event and to her friend Rihanna.

‘The diamond ball to me is GENIUS!’ she tweeted. ‘Everybody wants to look good and they want to go somewhere to look good and why not go to a charity event. Look good raise money.’

She also used the money bag emoji.

In 2017, Rihanna told the Diamond Ball crowd: ‘I am thrilled to bring the Diamond Ball to New York City and bring everyone closer to the mission, the partnerships, the programs and the people at the heart of it all.

‘Together, we are funding groundbreaking and effective global education, health and emergency response programs. We are investing in the future and helping to improve the quality of life for young people and their families around the globe,’ she said.

Cardi B appeared alongside husband Offset.

In July, the pair celebrated their ‘perfect’ daughter’s first birthday together.

Referring to daughter Kulture as her ‘birthday girl’, Cardi said she had to wash cake out of Kulture’s hair, as the pair clearly got a little carried away while celebrating.

Kulture’s dad Offset, meanwhile, couldn’t help gushing over the ‘perfect’ one-year-old in another sweet birthday post.

YOU ARE SO PERFECT LOVE YOU KK,’ Offset wrote. ‘HAPPY 1st BDAY I LOVE YOU.
