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.
