After hours of pampering, outfit fittings, drinking vintage Dom Perignon in hotel suites and helping stuff your girlfriend's On Aura Tout Vu train in the back seat of a taxi, it's no wonder P Diddy fancied what all boyfriends would secretly love to do on an outing with their other half – have a quick lie down.

However, this wasn't just any 'lie down', like Chrissy Teigen's momentary high-heel break at the Golden Globes earlier this year.

This one of the most hilarious/glamourous sit-down breaks in Met Gala and fashion industry history.

Having posed for photos alongside his girlfriend Cassie like most A-list celebrities, the 47-year-old rapper decided he had earned himself a well-deserved break and sprawled out along the Metropolitan Museum of Art staircase, like the absolute legend he is.

Taking to Twitter, P Diddy (who's real name is Sean Combs) explained his time on the carpet, writing: 'I was getting tired so I laid down on the stairs!!! #MetGala.'

I mean, fair enough.

As a result of Diddy's unapologetic time-out, we've taken a look back at the 10 stages of the star's hilarious Met Gala moment.

1. The elegant fall

With the pressure of walking up so many steps in front of the media's prying eye, Diddy accidentally trips over his cape on the staircase.

Embarrassed about his blunder, the hip hop star decides to style out his tumble, deceiving everyone into making them think he meant to lie down on purpose.

Clever, Diddy.

2. The 'keep it cool' look

Diddy gives that 'act normal' look to his girlfriend as she is mortified to see him lying down on the red carpet.

Of course, it doesn't take long for the singer to find the hilarity in her boyfriend's mishap.

3. The 'ouch my knee hurts' pose

Realising his Rick Owens cape was the cause of his fall, Diddy fans out his superhero cape down the staircase like a true professional, while subtly rubbing his now bruised knee.

4. The 'damn, girl' look

With Cassie posing in front of the cameras, Diddy finally has the chance to admire his girlfriend's beauty from afar while simultaneously considering whether he's slipped a disk.

5. The 'I'm a genius' smirk

While pondering what he'll have for dinner ('fish or chicken?'), Diddy considers how he will top this year's ingenious staircase pose at next's year's ball.

'Perhaps, I'll cartwheel down the staircase naked next time?' he thinks.

6. The 'bring the popcorn' look

Several minutes lying down on the stairs, P Diddy considers missing the Gala altogether and watch the rest of the red carpet arrivals with a hot dog and popcorn.

He scans the crowd of photographers to find a willing assistant with the Deliveroo app.

7. The 'oh, look at the time' stare

Diddy starts to get bored and contemplates a nap on the carpet before the festivities kick off inside.

8. The 'can you pick me up' pose

Like a sleepy child in a supermarket aisle, Diddy asks Cassie to pick him up.

She ignores his request.

9. The 'what the hell is Jaden Smith doing with his hair' look

Having spotted Jaden Smith carrying his own hair on the red carpet, Diddy is unimpressed with the possibility of being upstaged.

10. The 'fine, I'll stand' pose

Diddy finally gets up on his feet to join his girlfriend to pose, vertically, for the cameras like a 'normal' person.
