When Cameron Diaz stepped out on the media circuit to promote her new movie with Tom Cruise, “Knight and Day,” all eyes were on her mile long legs. But, once on-lookers recovered from the shock of her perfect gams, it was her sassy take on classic wardrobe pieces that took center stage. Her casual hair and understated makeup make her level of chic beauty seem attainable…and it is.
Cameron’s look can be defined as practical with an infusion of classic American style and a touch of glamour. Even when she’s dressed casually, she looks pulled together and ready for a close-up.
The best part about her outfit is that you can probably reach into your closet right now to duplicate the look. Her rolled up cream shorts are definitely on the daring side, but you can opt for a slightly longer version to suit your comfort level. These lace belted shorts ($19) or a self-belted longer version ($23) are darling alternatives to her pricey pair. Grab a white tee that is on the fitted side and a slim blazer, like this one from Henrikka ($96). Finish off the look with a neutral wedge sandal, like these from Kenneth Cole ($69) and you’ll be ready for your own media tour.
Somehow, Cameron always manages to look like she just walked off the beach, but she’s still ready for a black tie event. This super casual ‘do is almost unkempt, but definitely sexy. Working with a part down the middle, pull your hair back to the nape of your neck and secure with a hair band. Then create a messy bun by wrapping the pony tail around the hair band and securing with bobby pins. To achieve ultra straight locks, try Jilbere Nano Silver Ultra-Thin Flat Iron ($70). It will leave your hair smooth and shiny, just like Cameron’s.
With Cameron’s subtle makeup, the emphasis in on her shocking blue eyes and gorgeous cheekbones. The overall effect draws attention away from the makeup and allows you to notice her features. You can copy the look by using a smudge-proof liner, like Smashbox cream liner ($22), to define your peepers. Every skin tone has the perfect pink blush shade. For fairer skin, like Cameron’s, a punch of poppy pink is ideal. The darker your skin tone, the deeper the pink. On your lips, try a swipe of lipstick or gloss that adds a bit of shine in a shade close to your natural lip color.
