Sean Combs aka Puff Daddy aka P Diddy aka Diddy aka Cassie's boyfriend is world-renowned for his extravagant parties — the man loves himself, and more importantly, loves celebrating himself. Whether it's his infamous white parties or birthday parties, no one knows how to throw them quite like Puff Diddy.

Anyone who's anyone is invited to these events, so the stars from all industries wore their best getups to do whatever a P Daddy party involves (partying? Maybe?). A lot of stars forwent or amped up their signature style a bit.

Janelle Monae, who wears the same thing all the time, went for her usual shirt, dickie bow, and blazer combination up top, but took some risks that paid off at the bottom. She wore thigh-high suede boots that looked bomb and a mini skirt and man, did she look cool.

After a major event in your life, it's always appropriate to do something you consider crazy but actually isn't that crazy at all. After ending things with Gigi Hadid, Joe Jonas stuck a bit of teal in his hair. It's a great look to complement his new band that's like, way cooler than the JoBros, bro.

Amber Rose looked carefree and happy in her white and bronze outfit, casting a beam of feminist light over everyone's dark, sullen looks.
