Rihanna wowed everyone with her stunning dress designed by Tom Ford at the 2014 amfAR LA Inspiration Gala last night. She also presented the amfAR award to the designer.

According to Just Jared, Ri spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on two very special items — $35,000 on Harry Winston diamond earrings featuring 72 diamonds set in platinum and $100,000 on the photograph “Elizabeth Taylor at the Eden Roc” by Willy Rizzo, signed and numbered by the artist. Proceeds from the gala benefit amfAR’s numerous initiatives, with tables at the event costing philanthropists as much as $200,000.

Rihanna’s admiration for the designer meanwhile appears to be mutual.

Last year, Tom, who has his own successful label and has worked for fashion houses Gucci and Yves Saint Laurent in the past, says he finds his own inspiration in “extreme” stylists like Rih.

“You have to have a point of inspiration. At one point of my life, it would have been Grace Jones. At one point, it would have been Diana Ross… Whenever I’m working on a collection, everything does have to be real, and those outfits are real to me. If I think, ‘OK, who is wearing this and where is she going?’ And I think, ‘OK, that’s Rihanna, and she’s going to her lawyer’s office in that all-black outfit and she’s hung over and that’s why she’s wearing those glasses. Yet she’s still a rock star,'” he told WWD at the time.

According to amfAR.org, Inspiration events have raised more than $16 million to benefit the organisation since their inception in 2010.
