Jay and Diddy celebrate the latter's 50th birthday bash in two Big Fits of the Day

An inventory of things that were at Diddy's 50th birthday bash, according to TMZ: McDonald's apple pies, a handshake that marked the symbolic end of Jay-Z and Kanye West's years-long feud, a cake frosted with the word "LOVE," "some fancy stuff too"—AND, most importantly, two Big Fits of the Day.

Diddy and Jay-Z are doing eveningwear, two ways. Jay opted for a classic tux: black jacket with peak lapels (presumably from Tom Ford), bowtie, a killer watch from Patek Philippe. Diddy is decidedly more festive in a shawl-collar jacket the shade and sheen of a disco ball. Consider stealing Diddy's supersized, floppy bowtie look for any future holiday parties, or birthday parties for legendary rappers you have approaching on the calendar. Whether you decide to be a Jay-Z or Diddy at your next black tie event, you can't go wrong emulating either of these Big Fits.
