Cameron Diaz in New York City

Posted on August 29, 2012

We don’t know, Cam. We want to like this…

 

Cameron Diaz shops at the Soho Stella McCartney store in New York City.

Reed Krakoff ‘Gym’ Bag

… because the shoes are super-cute and we kind of like the bag, and the jacket’s kinda sassy, but honey, we simply can’t sign off on those high-waisted denim short shorts. That’s just asking way too much of us, hon.

      I think this would be cute with lower-waisted blue canvas shorts. And a warmer blond hair color!

      • MarissaLG

        I’m into the hair, but agree on the shorts. 

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/DJHCEFC7S5WYITH3D5ORYGS56I amye

        I agree about both!  But the shoes and bag are adorable.  WANT!

      She’s got a thing for shorts, doesn’t she? For as short as they are, it’s amazing the proportions are so off.

      • sockandaphone

        i would be into shorts too if my legs looked that fantastic.

        • lovelyivy

           If I had legs like that the world would view them regularly too. Alas for being one of the short and thick-legged girls in the crowd!

        • NC_Meg

          I was about to say the same thing! When you’ve got her legs, why not?

      • RebeccaKW

         Mom jean shorts.  I shudder to think what the rump looks like.

    • Sobaika

      It’s a cute running-around outfit, especially if we replace the shorts with something not denim. I don’t particularly mind that they’re high-waisted and so short because she has the legs for them.

      • http://twitter.com/sebwfu Shannon Beamer

        Yeah, I think the shorts are heinous, but I’m surprisingly not too angry at them.  Mostly because the rest of the look is so adorable.  Or perhaps it’s because I COVET the bag. 

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1084733830 Kate Andrews

          I love the bag too. And the shoes! I think the shorts would be OK if they were khaki.

    • sockandaphone

      this would be so cute with normal shorts :( 

      • Clueless_Jock

        Or sequined granny panties :)

        • sockandaphone

          well that too!

    • merciblahblah

      It’s the high waist on the shorts – they’re throwing off the proportions on an otherwise adorable outfit. Sads.

    • charlotte

      You lost me with the capture. How can someone even enter a Stella McCartney store?

      • 3boysful

         I was going to say, she doesn’t have a shopping bag, but silly me, they undoubtedly deliver for the likes of Cammie.

      • Jangle57

        Well at least it doesn’t look like she bought anything……

        • Anathema_Device

           Notice minion leaving behind her with a bag…probably carrying it for Diaz.

          • bitchybitchybitchy

            Given the size of that yellow bag, I think having a minion to carry Cameron’s purchases is almost a necessity ;)

      • Kayceed

        First I thought she was walking out of the shop with a beer, which would make me like Stella much more. Alas, it is probably tea.

        • charlotte

           And I thought for a moment that she had a teddy bear in her bag.

          • kimmeister

            What IS that?  A snuggie?

            • VictoriaDiNardo

              Looks like a cloth hat to me.

    • Pants_are_a_must

      All the accessories are adorable, but the outfit itself is a dud. If it looks weirdly unflattering on a body like Diaz’s, it’s a disaster on anyone else.

    • http://www.facebook.com/theAccidentalHousewife Leah Elzinga

      Words to live by: if there is more material ABOVE your waist than below it, they are not the pants, shorts, skirt for you.  Period.

    • BrightsideSusan

      I am happy to see higher waisted pants, personally.  But denim? No.

      • Sobaika

        YES to higher waists!

        I can’t manage anything else because I have a serious bum going on and it threatens to break free unless strapped in securely.

        • formerlyAnon

          You have caused me to envision your posterior sneaking off to buy its own ticket for a vacation trip without the rest of you.

          I should possibly be working.

        • AthenaJ

          My belly tries to do the same thing, so I also appreciate a higher waist. Damn our rebellious body parts!

        • kimmeister

          Amen to higher waists (spoken as a woman with a freakishly long torso who can pull them off), but I find them easier to fit with skirts rather than pants.  I do have high waisted pants, but they’re harder to fit correctly in the crotch.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      sorry, i cannot sign off on any shorts that create that much polterwang, especially in that first pic!

      • http://twitter.com/sillytwigg twigg

        “polterwang” is my new favorite word. Thank you!

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Irene-Wroclai/733770581 Irene Wroclai

      I.WANT.THOSE. SHOES. SO. BADLY. 

    • http://profiles.google.com/gillianholroyd gillian holroyd

      Love the bag in the pale lemony yellow color of the product shot but seems like IRL it’s rancid yellow.

    • formerlyAnon

      It looks fine for an ordinary gal.  But, she’s not no ordinary gal. And yes, it’s the shorts that strike the wrong note.

    • Judy_J

      Yet another ’70′s flashback!  I swear I had a pair of those high-waisted shorts in college.  How did she end up with them?

      • mjude

        you did have a pair. i know i had the regular length!

    • Kimmu

      I show my complete lack of maturity? propriety? when I looked at those shorts and went “People think they’re short? There’s like 4 or 5  inches of inseam!” and would consider them too long and old for me, especially combined with that mom jean high waist.

      • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

         They’re short considering they have such a high waist. It throws the proportions all off.

      • formerlyAnon

         Well, considering Ms. Diaz’ age (39 or so), they might be too ‘old’ for you. (Not sure how old you are .  . .)

        Though as a mom I will submit to any sweet young things who have not recently been nagged on the subject that the criteria for ‘too short’ might sometimes be more stringent than “shows an inch or more of butt cheek.”  Feel free to ignore.

      • kimmeister

        They don’t look like they have more than 3″ of inseam to me.  [shrugs]

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_F73LIJ3SJGI5AJQMXMWXCKILHI Pamela

      I see the cup she’s carrying & think “urine” and now I can’t think otherwise.  Cute outfit if the shorts were different.

      • charlotte

         I didn’t wanna say it…

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

        Can’t unsee now! 

    • Trisha26

      Not crazy about the shorts but I’m still getting my head around anything near the bellybutton/normal waist being called “high-waisted.” That term to me describes pants/skirts that end below the bust, like an empire style. And I’m pronouncing that “m-pire” not “om-peer.”

      • Elaine Lang

         Yeah.   I’m enough of a fogey that I remember where the waist actually is.   Perhaps after so many years of seeing people in hiphuggers (which have the unfortunate effect of making the wearer look like a rectangle if a shirt is tucked in)  the young-uns have forgotten that such a body zone exists. 

        Hint:   it’s the curvy-inny bit at the belly button.

        I think it’s weird that her drink matches her bag.

        • Kayceed

          Have you noticed how big belts have become, as no one wears them around their actual waist?

          • kimmeister

            YES!!!  I like to wear them around my actual waist (to visually shorten my long torso), and end up having to add holes in a size Small just to make them fit!

            • Elaine Lang

               Why are 40 inch belts on a size 8 slimming again?   I get that it makes the butt look smaller to have the droopy draws.    But, will no one listen to Sir Mix Alot?    Itty bitty waist and round thing in yo face, kids.    Not Blocky Body and coin slot crack!

    • Anathema_Device

      I’ll take the shoes and the bag. She can have everything else.

    • http://twitter.com/MajorBedhead MajorBedhead

      I don’t know why she irritates the piss out of me, but she does. She’d have to look completely spectacular to summon up anythign heartier than a meh from me.

      But I do like the handbag. Just not in the colour she’s sporting. 

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

      I’m thinking,um, still- hot, sporty and wealthy ’60 year-old gal in the south of France picking up her meds at the ‘pharmacie’.

    • AthenaJ

      I’m sorry, but the Orange One would have (verbally) ripped those shorts to shreds if one of the designers created them on PR. They’ve got crotchtal issues going on for days, and ruin an otherwise cute outfit.

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

      The high waist and short length of the shorts make the proportions look crazy.  I can’t imagine they are comfortable to sit in. “oh look the paps just happen to be at the Stella store, how strange”.  Pfft. 

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2B6U4UNVYIV5DLEG6Z24ALYOC4 Dan Alexander

      She looks quite a bit like Terrence Stamp a.k.a. Bernadette Bassenger from The Adventures of Priscilla, queen of the dessert! Girl is lookin rough.

    • YoungSally

    • Tatiana Luján

      I love the way she looks, shorts and all.

      • Magatha

         I might untuck the shirt, but mostly I agree with you.

    • http://www.facebook.com/AntoniaDonnelly Antonia O’Connor Donnelly

      I want a thousand dollar gym bag!!!

      • rougeort

        That was THE ONLY THING I could think of to say after seeing that… who gives a shit how she looks if her luxe leather bag is classified as gym wear!!!!!!!

    • http://twitter.com/MandySCG MandyJane

      If she’d untuck the tank top and cover up the top of those shorts this would be really cute. 

    • PastryGoddess

      The end of the world is nigh.  If Cami “bazillion miles of leg” Diaz can’t make high waisted denim shorts work, then who can.  WHO?  I I ask?

    • Sara__B

      That scoop neck tank, high waist shorts combo looks like the 1970s to me. Been there. Worn that.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Emily-Smith/12431153 Emily Smith

      mom jeans in shorts form!  god help us all!

    • nannypoo

      I don’t think this is so bad. Her hair looks less fried than usual.

    • MoHub

      Love the sneakers!

    • http://profiles.google.com/phyllis.craine Phyllis Craine

      It’s not an NYC look that’s why

    • Susan Crawford

      Even with Cammie’s mile-long super-girl legs those shorts are not flattering. I absolutely LOVE, CRAVE, and NEED the bag, and I wouldn’t say no to the cute shoes, either. Wonder what she was checking out at Stella McCartney?

    • Corazon Nunez

      I was just looking at this thing going, “I know something is wrong here . . . What is it? . . . Hmm . . .” Then I read the paragraph at the bottom, and I go, “AHA! THAT’S what’s wrong here! The waist!”

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_63FW2Y5BWUARL7PJGWK54TUDGE Carrieanno

      If not for the straw in the cup, I’d assume she was going to drop off a specimen at the lab.

    • ccm800

      Not on board wither. blah! 

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

      Super cute with a different pair of shorts, as everyone else has said.

      But MORE IMPORTANTLY, the paparazzo with the “RESPECT” tattoo in prime viewing territory is cracking me up.

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

        Seriously, you can only see that when he has a camera held to his face. This is HILARIOUS.

    • MilaXX

      Agreed, the high waist is doing her no favors. A lower rise and this would be a great faux gal on the street look.

    • Candigirl1968

      The shorts might work if she had more of a t-shirt than tank and if it wasn’t tucked in.  

    • Lilak

      Stella’s old pal Goop could probably make this work, maybe even with the dumb shorts — and I bet she’d accomplish it by carrying herself with more confidence than Cam here, who looks like she wants the earth to swallow her up right quick. 

    • Lisa

      Loving her shades, but not much else.

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      I love the bag, but the rest of the outfit is just “meh.”

      And the shorts need to be burned. 

    • quiltrx

      Irrational celebrity hate.  Cute shoes, though.  And what the hell is that sheepskin-looking thing distorting that cool bag?

    • SapphoPoet

      Hiddy shorts. But at least she’s not wearing heels with them, which is my absolute pet peeve. 

    • Judy_S

      I think she looks cute, but pleasantly casual. If she wasn’t carrying the showy bag the paps and passersby might not know she’s somebody they should be staring at and photographing. 

    • ChaquitaPhilly

      So these gals have a beautiful new bag every time they leave the house. This one costs $990.00!
      Is it a loaner? Do they have to move all their stuff to a new bag every time the go the the gym, or whatever?
      I know the runway stuff is all “borowed” but what about the very day outfits?

    • http://twitter.com/SarahVotes Sarah Bailey

      Yuck, total mom jorts.

      Oh my good God. Those are hiddy. 

    • EEKstl

      That one shot of Cam leaving the store with a gaggle of paparazzi lying in wait did make me cringe.  RC is one thing; it has to get really old really fast to have that be part of your everyday life so that Bitter Kittens like us have something to judge.  I know, I know, Faust, dowside of celebrity, yada yada yada.  It just probably sucks.   Anyway, back to judging: Cute look, I don’t even mind the shorts, maybe because I am so short-waisted I envy anyone who can wear them.

    • Alyson Epstein

      when will high waisted anything just go away?

    • LocMama

      Please tell me that jacket isn’t a Stella McCartney because I really like it.  LOVE that bag so much that I followed the link in hopes that it could be mine. sigh.  I just can’t with those shorts.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_VZLU6YVO4BRTELTTH3GRAAMWZQ Dot

      Those shorts make my crotch hurt just looking at them.

    • oohsparkley!

      I’m fine with the shorts.  Better than some skanky, too-short, cut-offs.  The high-waisted thing comes and goes. 

    • PhillipWilde

      The shorts are puffing out and giving the illusion of a FUPA, which Miss Cam certainly does not have.
