Rihanna makes appearance at Porcelain Ballroom competition
Her Fenty Beauty company awards $10K to the winner of the ‘Face’ category at the gala
If there’s one thing Rihanna knows all about it’s winning! So it only makes sense that she was on hand this weekend the House of Miyake-Mugler’s Porcelain Ball to present a whopping $10,000 prize.
According to Snobette, Saturday, Riri wowed a crowd of fans and ballroom enthusiasts as she made a grand appearance at PlayStation Theater in Midtown Manhattan.
This year’s glamorous event, titled “Porcelain Ball” was hosted by Rihanna’s longtime hair stylist Yusef Williams and partially sponsored by Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty which specifically offered a large cash prize in the “Face” category.
“When people think about the ballroom community, thoughts generally turn to voguing, which is known in the scene as a part of the performance category,” explains OUT Magazine. “Behind that sits the categories of realness, a type of identity performance, and runway, which is exactly what it sounds like. But though it may not get the most mainstream attention, the category of face is one of the hottest there is inside the community.”

“Face is the combination of 5 elements: Eyes, nose, skin, teeth, and structure,” Legendary Exotic Miyake-Mugler, overall mother of the House of Miyake-Mugler recently told the publication. “ These elements come together to form a unique beauty that is rarely seen. Think of the judges as a modeling agency: they are looking for their star model of the night.”
The Barbadian singer was all smiles in her white ensemble under the bright lights of the photographers waiting for her arrival and attended the event with bestie Melissa Forde. In addition to Riri and the runway performers Lil Mama and model Winnie Harlow also made appearances.
Since then social media has been all abuzz with clips and photos from her action packed weekend in NYC. Check out some of our faves below.
