Cameron Diaz used to buy her outfits for Hollywood film premieres from department stores.

During a chat with friend and make-up artist Gucci Westman for a recent episode of her YouTube series Makeup & Friends, the Charlie’s Angels actress reminisced about her red carpet style over the years and insisted that she shunned stylists and designers for many years and instead opted to visit now-defunct luxury U.S. department store Barneys New York for her gowns.

“The red carpet is so different now. For my premieres, I would just go to Barneys and buy clothes and go to my premiere,” Cameron recalled, adding that women on the red carpet nowadays are more “objectified” than they were 10 years ago. “It wasn’t like a whole production where you got judged or, what’s the word, rated or scored for how you look.”

The duo, who met early on in their careers, also discussed the star’s look for the 2002 Academy Awards, when she stepped out in a stunning pink-and-red floral Emanuel Ungaro gown.

However, Cameron confessed that she didn’t even bother thinking about what she was going to wear until the last minute, prompting Gucci to pull in a favour from the designer.

“I was like ‘Oh, I’m going to the Oscars. I forgot,'” the 47-year-old laughed.

Elsewhere in the video, Cameron shared a rare glimpse into her marriage to Good Charlotte rocker Benji Madden, with whom she shares baby daughter Raddix.

“I love being married. I love that the best thing that ever happened to me was finding my husband, and our partnership and his friendship and all that,” she sweetly shared.

America’s iconic Barneys New York department store will be the exclusive home of Riccardo Tisci’s debut Burberry collection Kingdom.

The fashion house has chosen to release Tisci’s eagerly awaited line in the U.S. first on Wednesday (06Feb19), before rolling it out globally later in February.

Tisci joined the English heritage brand in March 2018, succeeded long-time head Christopher Bailey in the role.

He showed off his first designs at London Fashion Week in September, with the brand now gearing up for the collection to finally hit shelves.

“Changing the way our customers experience Burberry is a key part of our strategy to transform the brand, and evolving our presence in the U.S. is critical to achieving this,” Marco Gobbetti, Burberry’s chief executive officer, told WWD. “We want to create a consistent luxury experience across each and every one of our consumer touch points that reflects, and amplifies, Burberry’s new creative vision. Much of this work is now complete in the U.S. and our wholesale partners have been incredibly supportive.”

Kingdom will be available at Barneys’ Madison Avenue and Beverly Hills stores, as well as Burberry’s 57th Street flagship and the Spring Street store in New York.

Gobbetti praised Barneys as an “influential partner,” while Jay Bell, executive vice president, general merchandise manager of the women’s department at Barneys New York, said the store had long been a supporter of Tisci.

“We have collaborated on some groundbreaking partnerships in the past, and we were extremely excited when we found out he was joining Burberry,” he said. “Burberry is an iconic brand, and Riccardo has interpreted its DNA through his visionary lens, establishing a new chapter for the house.”
