FASHION: Essentials: Puff Daddy

Sean Combs needs no real introduction — few have had their hands in as many aspects of popular culture as Puff Daddy has over the last 25 years. Starting his career in the music industry, Mr. Combs signed The Notorious B.I.G. and founded Bad Boy Records in the early ’90s before going on to work with artists like Usher, TLC, and Mase, winning Grammys and VMAs along the way. Not content to be only a hip-hop mogul, in 1998 Puff Daddy added fashion to his repertoire by starting the clothing brand Sean John, which garnered him a CFDA award for Menswear Designer of the Year in 2004. Having hit his stride with design, Combs again expanded his portfolio of businesses — this time with the alcohol brand Cîroc. And, as if his resume was not yet long enough, he also dabbled in acting — most recently appearing on-screen with Jonah Hill in Get Him to the Greek, Kevin Costner in Draft Day and even making a cameo in Muppets Most Wanted.
