I really fell in love with it. I'm just like, I did not realize that millions of infants are dying in Africa just 'cause they don't have a bed net and I'm like the-- in this world we're living, we should be able to do something about that.

We're here at Sean "P. Diddy" Combs' White Party. For behind the scenes look at the party planning and all the cool things that are gonna happen tonight. So, come with me and we'll go on a tour. I'm here with Nicolas Ronteix, director of the Italian and French portfolio of the Georges DuBoeuf wine.

We're gonna be pouring some wine from the south of the Burgundy region, a Macon-Villages, and Pouilly-Fuisse.

And these are all white wines?

Yes, they're white, they're crisp, they're refreshing, and they're made with Chardonnay grapes.

I'm here with Rick Johnson, Executive Chef and owner of Marlow Wing House who's catering P. Diddy's white party this year. So, I heard we're having some barbecue.

That's right. Beef ribs, pork ribs, barbecued chicken.

I see a lot of white food.


Our crab cake is over our crab cakes, shrimp, curry chicken, pastini.

'Cause the team of today is "We are Family" and I heard that Diddy said what better way to have family than 4th of July barbecue.

That's right.

I'm here with Jeffrey Best, amazing L.A. Party planner and visual genius behind Diddy's white party this year. What are the tips that you have for our readers if they wanna throw white party of their own?

Well, I'll tell you. If you wanna throw a white party of your own, it's pretty easy because it's just that everybody has got white clothing somewhere and then just add on to that and then you can bring to the party that's white. It would be white cupcakes, you know. It could be any kind of white blankets. It could be white pillows and then you got a party.

We have a part-- a more important cause in the party with Malaria no more.

Can I ask you what you have in your hands?

I have a mosquito net that gets used in Africa by families in Africa to protect them from mosquitoes that spread Malaria and we're looking to get one of these to every family who needs one in Africa by the end of 2010.

I really fell in love with it. I'm just like, I did not realize that millions of infants are dying in Africa just 'cause they don't have a bed net and I'm like we-- In this world we're living, we should be able to do something about that.

Well, I'm friendly with Demi and Ashton and we've worked together in some other charities together, so I'm sure that kind of grew out of some work that is going in Malawi so I'm happy to see that they're here. They're just awesome.

For our readers, what's your tip for how to get ready for a white party? What would you say?

Stay away from everything while you're walking around the house once you have on your outfit.


I already have some mishap. I'm covering them up well but white and me and the summer.

Can I ask you who you're wearing?

I'm wearing Alexander Wang and I don't know my shoes are and I put them through it together, so yeah.

Better love 4th of July and we're out here making movies and meeting new people and that's what is July's party about, about people meeting new people.

My name is Leonard Bernstein. I'm a physician at The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York. The idea of heat laser began probably about 14 to 15 years ago. Lot of research was done in the first 2 or 3 years, so it's been out for about 12 to 13 years.

The advantages of laser hair removal really beyond anything else that it's permanent, you know. If you invest the time of front, but then later, you think about shaving, you don't think about hair regrowth.

Women who got dark hair in particular find it real struggle staying on top with leg hair, arm hair, even facial hair when it's dark.

Areas like the lower legs, the underarms, and bikini which have the coarsest hair respond the fastest with maybe 3 to 5 treatment sessions.

You can do even your face like you can do mustache. You can do your eyebrows.

Facial hair can vary. It can be 3 to 4 treatments for an older person. For younger woman, it may take 20 treatments. We took a writer who had really been plagued by her very hairy leg and she talks about how hair-- she didn't realize that woman could have 5 o'clock shadow. It was really psychologically upsetting to this, otherwise extremely attractive and very sophisticated successful woman for someone like that who feels like they've just have hair that's out of control. Once you get it lasered, you're not gonna have to worry about that.

I've had laser hair removal done. They did my armpits and my bikini line.

I wouldn't do it because I think it's just easier to just shave and it's a lot-- it's expensive.

If I was to give advice, just really, really ask a lot of questions and know the procedure that you're getting into.

I do have 2 friends actually that had it done and they've had like another friend has had underarm, leg, and bikini and they've had like successful stories.

I've done Electrolysis also so I don't think it's very painful.

It varies from person to person. For some people, it does, it is uncomfortable. For most patients, it's tolerable. We do use a local anesthetic when treating larger areas.

Laser hair removal suddenly is permanent solution to a really annoying, time-consuming problem.

Feel the burst of skin loving moisture in new Go Fresh Body Wash. It naturally lighten your skin.

I can go anywhere, I can go anywhere today.

It's a juicy new way to go fresh. The juicy goodness of burst, also comes in a bar.

Not only that it's an amazing party but I mean it's an amazing organization, Malaria No More, and so, you know, being able to come out here and have some fun with celebrities and also you can have that big part.

There're 2 causes today. I do work for-- in a lot numbers of the US campaign for Burma as well as the Children Institute here in town.

And what can we see you doing next?

Obviously Dexter and that will be out September 27 and the movie coming up in fall [unknown] to All Saints Day.
