Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs was a perfect fit at the 2022 BET Awards held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday. The legendary musician and world-renowned entrepreneur will receive his biggest bouquet of flowers with the honor of the Lifetime Achievement Award. Diddy will take the stage alongside Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, Nas, Lil Kim and Busta Rhymes. The set of musical acts will speak to the icon’s deep legacy.
The “Gotta Move On” rapper arrived on the red carpet alongside his mother Janice Combs. Diddy stepped out in a signature summer color, a pink suit which he complemented with a white button-up shirt. The overcoat featured wide lapels, slanted slip pockets and an asymmetrical hem. He paired his tops with matching pants.
The “I’m Gonna Miss You” artist accessorized with sleek black shades, a silver watch and a diamond ring. To complete her look, a pair of shiny black leather loafers. The patent silhouette had an elongated square toe and a stacked heel. Moccasins were first popularized in the 1950s among men, but have evolved over time into many styles and silhouettes. For men, loafers tend to be casual shoes; for women, they can also be lug-soled shoes synonymous with schoolgirl style.
The BET Awards celebrate the achievements of musicians, actors, athletes and more in various fields of entertainment. The first BET Awards were held in 2001 to celebrate black culture and black excellence. Taraji P. Henson hosts this year’s show with performances by Lizzo, Latto and Jack Harlow. Major nominations include Doja Cat with six nods, Ari Lennox and Drake with four nods each.
