EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. – White was the dress code at a star-saturated party thrown by Sean "Diddy" Combs at his Long Island home, and the dress code was strictly enforced.
The hip-hop mogul's annual White Party, which he has held in St. Tropez in recent years, featured a white carpet to go along with the white dress code.
"This party is up there with the top three that I've thrown," Combs said. "It's a party that has legendary status. It's hard to throw a party that lives up to its legend."
Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, Donna Karan, Ashley Olsen, Star Jones and Tommy Lee were among the guests.
But those who failed to abide by the dress code found themselves told to change, including the wife of Billy Joel, Katie Lee. She had gone to the party dressed in a shade of cream, but that did not win over Combs' fashion police. Turned away, she opted to go home.
Combs wore white sneakers with silver detailing, a white shirt and pants and a gold medallion.
