Cameron Diaz in NYC

Posted on April 03, 2012

Cammie provides a primer for younger starlets: How to pose without looking like you’re posing. Take it away, Cammie. She’s trying not to notice the cameras pointed at her. Just a gal running errands in New York, that’s all. After fake-texting for a while in order to look busy, Cammie arranges her face into a grimace, as if to say “Ugh. There are cameras following my every move. How distasteful!” And then, because she knows they won’t stop bothering her until they get the money shot…   SUPERSTAR! The only people in New York who hail cabs like this are people in the midst of being filmed. At least we assume she’s hailing a cab. She kinda looks like she’s about to step into a cartwheel, which would be flipping AWESOME, but since there are no pics of such an event, we have to assume it only happened in our imaginations. Still, cute getup, Cam

      FAB!!!!

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who has difficulty with ankle boots and skinny jeans. It looks weird, no?

      • Alisa Rivera

        Yes! The fit of those jeans is really odd. She has a perfect figure but the jeans manage to make her look weird in a way I can’t quite put my finger on.

          Pegged legged? 

      • NC_Meg

         Usually it does (I’ve tried it myself many times and always grimace and change shoes) but for some reason, I like it here. That’s a really great outfit.

      • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

        Yes! People keep telling me I could wear them, but WHERE DO YOU PUT THE CUFFS?

    • Lilithcat

      That’s just silly.  People like her don’t hail cabs.  Their assistants have a car service on speed dial.

      She looks so much better in this than she does in those tiny little cocktail dresses, but without the huge cheesy grin I almost didn’t recognise her.

    • http://joyouslifesf.wordpress.com Kiltdntiltd

      I dunno, I see women every day as well turned out. Nothing special going on here, except she probably didn’t have to pay for any of it.

      • http://twitter.com/ohmybears48 Michelle Argento

        Agree. This is pretty standard, urban white girl wear. I have the entire outfit in my closet. 

        • muzan-e


           I have the entire outfit in my closet.

          I’ve never said this before at TLo Headquarters – but I can today!

          Those boots, particularly. Sure, mine are probably much-cheaper knockoffs, but those boots are gorgeous and I have them in two colours.

          • JasmineAM

            I have some Steve Madden ones just like hers that I got for $20. I love them dearly

      • ballerinawithagun

        Absolutely nothing special.

    • Judy_J

      That is a great outfit, but I think she should have tucked the jeans into the boots instead of letting them bunch up around the ankles.  Love the last photo.

      • drdirection

        They appear haphazardly bunched at the top, but you know they were “artfully” placed that way :)

    • Cheri Lee

      Hahaha! Love the commentary but seriously how else would you hail a cab?

      • miagain

         I agree… that’s exactly the way I hail a cab, whether in DC or NYC… as do all my NY friends and family.  Hate to tell them they’ve been doing it wrong all these years!!

      • BrooklynBomber

        Not blasé enough.

        • http://www.tomandlorenzo.com/ Tom and Lorenzo

          Nailed it.

          You have to hail a cab, but look like you’re not hailing a cab. It’s an art.

          • baxterbaby

            I don’t know guys.  As a life-long New York City resident, I don’t feel that intentional is more descriptive of cab hailing than casual.  We don’t flail at every yellow cab (especially the ones with the off duty lights on; unless we know that our destination is on the way to their garage, in which case they probably take us), but watch closely, looking for out for variously, lit cabs, turn signals, street side, other would-be passengers farther down the street who are more likely to snatch the cab, etc., and then we raise the arm with purpose, walking directly into path of said cab, so that they either pick us up or run us over. 

    • http://twitter.com/bredalot Bridget Smith

      She looks great – super-cute outfit, even if it’s nothing special – but I think those glasses are too round for her face.

      • Spicytomato1

        Too round and too big. She looks like a bug.

    • Anathema_Device

      Maybe she has hailed so many cabs in movies that she thinks this is how it is done? She looks cute and casual here.

      And my kingdom for a cartwheel.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      i know Cammie has a great bod, but that jean/boot combo does nothing for her figure, perhaps its all the whiskering on the thighs plus the awkward way cuff meets boot, the look would be so much sleeker with a higher riding boot style.

    • BazoDee

      I approve. She looks comfortable and stylish. Although I think the reason it looks cute is her forever legs -us mortals could put on the same look and have it look like a plea for Stacy and Clinton to intervene. 

    • Knightley

      Is it that cold in NYC or is she just being a typical celeb and not dressing according to season?  Just wondering, since it’s already hit 75 in SE Atlanta and it’s barely 10:30 am. :(

      • jblaked

        I was wondering the same thing!

        • Elizabeth Wakefield

          Right now, it’s 45 in Providence but with a windchill making it 40.  So, not NYC but somewhat close! 

      • sarahofalessergod

        It’s a high in the sixties today, but my guess is this was taken yesterday when it was much, much cooler.

      • jw_ny

         Her jacket doesn’t look that heavy and her scarf is mostly for show.  She’s dressed as warmly as the gentleman in the pic, and the kids have jackets on too…one has a hood on.  So, I’d say it’s a safe bet that she’s dressed appropriately for the climate.  Her outfit is cute and chic, but not out of the ordinary for the average on-the-go NYC woman.

      • BrooklynBomber

        Assuming this was taken yesterday, it was a bit chilly & very windy. She’s not dressed wrong.

      • http://www.lindamerrill.com Linda Merrill

         I’m in Boston and we’re still wearing jackets and scarves. Plus, she’s from LA – so she’s going to feel the cold much more than we in the north east would.

    • Laurie Bergman

      It’s indeed a standard look, but her hair looks great here…I especially like the air it has in the last pic.  And the jacket fits her very nicely.

      Deconstruct it all you want, TLo. I believe her every gesture. 

      • janedonuts

        Yeah me too. Also, that facial expression cannot possibly be deliberate. (Love you guys with all my heart though.)

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Patrick-Cleary/1201575213 Patrick Cleary

      This reminds me of the catalog posing tutorial with Janice Dickenson in an early season of “America’s Next Top Model.”

      “I’m pointing at my watch and we’re laughing. It’s funny. We don’t know why!”

      • http://twitter.com/AShinyOConnor A Shiny O’Connor

        I never thought I’d say this but, I miss Janice Dickenson.

        • muzan-e

          Once you peeled back the Drunk and the Petty, she had some things to say that were worth hearing. *g*

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_EDI2DLE7DE3YPW2ONIHBWOVHMA ecallaw

      So how do people in New York really hail cabs?  I’ve never been and I have no idea!

      • http://www.facebook.com/hellene2 Hellene Jakinovich

        Stand at the curb, look back on oncoming traffic. When you see a yellow cab, put your arm up like that. (But without looking glamorous or anything.)  I find it funny, too, a celeb like her hailing a cab.  

    • http://twitter.com/chylde bellalozza

      Look at the neck. Cammie’s showing some “Candy Bergen.”

      • Kimberlini

        Not just the neck…look at those lines around her mouth.  Can’t hide those with an infinity scarf.  Reminder:  Juvederm appointment time.

    • formerlyAnon

      I like her boots and jacket. That is all.

    • nannypoo

      She’s doing a pretty good job. She looks like an ordinary person on the street, so much so that the passersby don’t even seem to notice her. Either that, or they are better actors than she is. She could really use some conditioner.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      Eh, I prefer the Salma Hayek version of this act.

    • VeryClaire

      Anyone else seeing Cybil Shepard here?

      • MilaXX

         circa Moonlighting days? Yes I can see that.

    • calimon

      That was a fun morning fairytale. Thanks Uncle(s) TLo!

    • gabbilevy

      She’s from Long Beach, CA, so maybe that’s how she THINKS New Yorkers hail cabs. 

    • http://twitter.com/Highlandista Highland Fashionista

      Love the fake texting. Look outside of one of the shows at fashion week. EVERYONE is on the phone “texting”. I remember the days when smoking was the only thing people did to “look busy” while posing. 

    • marilyn

      She knows how to work it.

    • Mildred20

      What are the little flaps hanging out from under the jacket at the hips?  Is the sweater bunching up? 

      • Kate4queen

        I ‘think’ those are the end bits of her scarf. But I could be wrong…

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/IJ24R5O4SIHVJNRC5FCTIYVF2M Nahum

      You can never go wrong with skin-tight jeans, boots and a fitted blazer. Cammie is FIT!

    • MilaXX

      cute look, love the sunnies

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      I love those boots, but I am skinny jeans’ biggest hater. How they got everyone to wear tapered legs again I will never know.

    • alyce1213

      It’s funny.  I’m wearing pretty much the same thing today, including brown lace-up boots.  Except my scarf is nicer.
      Cool and windy in NYC, March in April.

    • Spicytomato1

      Great post, I laughed throughout, from “fake texting” to “cartwheel.” She looks Ok but I just saw a casual, out-and-about photo of Cate Blanchett and her family in Paris and Cate blows her away, style-wise.

      • alyce1213

        True, but street fashion-wise, NYC is much funkier than Paris, even for celebrities.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Jessica-TallGirl-Freeman/1043623567 Jessica TallGirl Freeman

      Cartwheell…snort laughing.  Brilliant TLo.

       Science does not know its debt to imagination.
      Goethe did not believe that a great naturalist could exist without this
      faculty.

    • guest2visits

      I don’t much like skinny jeans, period. But I love the jacket and scarf. She looks good without over working it.

    • PeaceBang

      I’m chortling at work. heh heh heh. SUPERSTAH ARM FLING! I’m so glad her hair is cute again. That bad do’ was giving me an existential crisis.

    • sleah_in_norcal

      she’s MARY MARGARET SUPERSTAR!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_3AJ237ND3GAHDQJZ4TLCO4WLRA Emily

      cute outfit.  I concur that stars should cartwheel spontaneously for cameras.  That would be awesome.

    • http://twitter.com/#!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      Now how am I ever supposed to hail a cab again without going, SUPERSTAR!

    • http://twitter.com/jaythenerdkid Aaminah Khan

      She looks so gorgeous here. Why does she never look like this on the RC?

    • http://twitter.com/Lola99959 Veronika Kaufmann

      ankle boots and skinny jeans are made for each other. I just wish she wouldn’t have cut her hair. Longer suits her better. But otherwise, she’s cool. 

    • Nonnah

      All I see is a young Cybil Sheppard!

    • http://www.facebook.com/vvofffgmydc Michael Yip

      Does this mean that I’m secretly being filmed in New York since I hail cabs like this all the time? haha WERQUE CAMDE

    • EEKstl

      Sorry to disagree, but as a native New Yorker I have been known to hail cabs that way; it’s the “I’m walking towards the curb to hail a cab but oh wow, there’s one now so I’d better put my arm up mid-stride as I’m making my way to the curb” walk.  Happens every day.  It does look pretty glam when Cammie does it, tho.

    • bitterk

      Best female body in Hollywood, hands down.
