Sean “Diddy” Combs’s 50th birthday bash this past weekend was a visual reminder of just how loved the late Kim Porter is. According to People, the music mogul pushed back the celebration for his birthday an entire month (his actual birthday is in November) to ensure that the event would coincide with the birthday of his late partner, and mother of his children.

As friends and family pay tribute to the late model and actress on social media, we look back on all the times she served outer beauty to match her inner beauty. With long lean legs, covetable cheekbones, and the most impeccable melanin-rich skin, Kim Porter made a note-worthy entrance every time she entered a room (or red carpet).
