Last night, editors, influencers, and models gathered to celebrate Lupita Nyong’o as the new Global Ambassador of De Beers Diamonds:

The brand kicked off the announcement with an event that acknowledged their past, all the while toasting to a bright future with a performance by Chloe Bailey, followed by dinner prepared by Chef Roze Traore.
