Cameron Diaz In Chanel – “Bad Teacher” New York Premiere

Cameron Diaz turned the heat (and her hemline) up several notches for the “Bad Teacher” New York Premiere tonight at the Ziegfeld Theatre.

The actress, who’s had an exhausting weekend promoting this movie, opted for a Chanel Spring 2011 mini dress on this occasion.

Without the boots, this black and white knit dress looks even shorter on Cameron.

Despite the exposed bra, this is my favourite look from Cameron on this so-so promo tour. This is the only look I will remember.

Her favourite Casadei pumps – which she’s been wearing throughout this promotional tour – and gold Cartier jewels completed her look.

    I’m really disappointed by this overwhelmingly negative thread (apart from the much-deserved praise for the site). Don’t like her outfit? Fair enough. RCFA is a great forum for debating the looks of the day but I’ve never considered it a place to make personal remarks/judgments about whether a woman “takes care of herself.” And what is this about Cameron being too old to wear this dress?How insensitive is that to readers her age and older who work their butts off to look great in skimpy summer clothes?Clothes unfit twenty-somethings can’t work? Moreover, Cameron isn’t “flashing” anyone. Since when is a black bra offensive or even more than a little risqué by today’s standards? Certainly, her look has been a bit same-y on this tour but she’s promoting a film in which she plays the overtly sexual female lead. Super-short skirts make as much sense as L-Liu’s black-and-white Kung Fu Panda kick.

    all i can think about is how on earth she manages to sit or do anything in that dress, really, without flashing everyone. it could use a couple inches, to say the least.

    Just can’t get behind this look. You can see her bra and underwear and thing is ridiculously short. I’m all for short dresses especially with Cameron’s awesome legs but this just comes off as a beach coverup and worse off looks a bit desperate beside her ex. Sorry Cameron.

    i swear her and blake lively must be BFFs all they seem to wear is short dress that show of their legs *yawn*

    This dress looks good, but it’s nothing that special for Cameron. This kind of micro-mini is practically a uniform for her.

  7. Gabi June 21, 2011 at 13:05 #

    Hmmm.. I beg to differ. This dress doesn’t do it for me. I am tired of seeing Cameron’s legs – yes, Cam, WE KNOW you have gorgeous legs – in these tinny dresses/shorts/skirts which is all we’re getting from her lately. Plus she looks awfully tired and her face is REALLY strange. I don’t know if it’s cause she is getting too thin or if it’s too much plastic surgery. But it just doesn’t look good. She is not aging well.
    Anyway, I prefer some of her casual looks from Europe. A great casual chic look is much better than an uninspired so-so couture look, imo.

    Meh…just like the rest of Cammie’s looks from this promo tour it’s uninspired. She needs her vavavoom back.

  9. Pati June 21, 2011 at 11:07 #

    I don´t like it. It makes her appear very wide in the waist area.

    • maria June 21, 2011 at 14:46 #

      i totally agree. She is so muscular now that this tight fitting dress makes her look really broad.

  10. faellie June 21, 2011 at 10:58 #

    The blame for a dress which is see-through under lights falls to the dress-maker more than the dress-wearer. Shame on Chanel for tacky workmanship, not Cameron.

    • Elizabeth June 21, 2011 at 13:54 #

      Are you kidding? Chanel doesn’t have to alter their work for anybody. If you buy a sheer dress knowing it’s sheer, you better make it work yourself or else you’ll look tacky. Cameron chose not to wear anything else under it; that’s her problem, not Chanel’s.

      • faellie June 21, 2011 at 14:39 #

        Nope, not kidding. Fashion houses show unlined dresses on the catwalk so that they get lots of picture coverage. But if they send out unlined versions away from the catwalk, they risk their reputations because they can’t control the presentation of those dresses, and risk their expensive dresses looking like they are made of thin, cheap, low-end fabrics.

        In the end, Cameron makes her living by showing off her body. Chanel makes theirs by selling an expensive image. Which is the loser here? (YMMV, of course.)

    She looks cute. Not amazing but it works.

    • Anamika June 21, 2011 at 11:17 #

      +1 the dress is not my cuppa tea

  12. june June 21, 2011 at 08:40 #

    that dress is so short i don’t think it even qualifies as a dress. aside from that (and the exposed bra), she looks really great

  13. Emi June 21, 2011 at 08:29 #

    Cute dress, but not very Chanel, I would say… Better accessories would have improved it, but I think that Cameron doesn’t want to shift the attention from her body… Justin looks so cute!

  14. Steffie June 21, 2011 at 08:10 #

    amazing, btw i love your website for the amount and info you get on here, its one of the best around. Kepp up the good work 🙂

    • Fashion Critic June 21, 2011 at 08:11 #

      thank you x

      • Elaine June 21, 2011 at 12:39 #

        It is THE best. no competittion imo 🙂

  15. mol June 21, 2011 at 05:08 #

    Her hair looks good here, and she looks great with Justin!

  16. Hannah June 21, 2011 at 03:11 #

    I am actually genuinely concerned, just because her last promo tour, or th eone before was all same black/white/nude looks and was pretty uninspiring, an dI am concerned this one will be too, because so far, besides one ‘sage’ dress, which looked pretty close to white to me, that is ht efull colour spectrum from Cammie. Also, she has a glowing tann, incredible body and beautiful colouring, she could do so much better!

  17. Elizabeth June 21, 2011 at 03:07 #

    She’s too old to be dressing like she’s in her twenties. and she’s a bad actress so it’s a lose all around.

  18. doc June 21, 2011 at 03:07 #

    I can’t believe people like this dress. It’s so shockingly tacky, especially from a line like Chanel. Cameron looks like a hooker in this get-up. Maybe that was the point though, the movie is about a bad teacher.

    • AW June 21, 2011 at 14:56 #


      Nothing about this look (on Cameron or the model) says classy or elegant or even fashionable.

      Cameron looks like she’s trying too hard. Age with some grace for goodness sake. If this were Halle Berry or Kim K wearing this exact same outfit, everyone would be grossed out. Cameron doesn’t get a pass because she doesn’t have a shapely body.

    • dee June 21, 2011 at 16:50 #

      I agree. She looks trashy.

  19. Rebecca Z June 21, 2011 at 03:02 #

    Amazing legs and a great dress–but she looks really tired!

    • D June 21, 2011 at 09:11 #

      she’s aged and thats normal 🙂 i am glad she didnt do surgeries :p

      • Rebecca Z June 21, 2011 at 15:24 #

        Yep, know all about that aging thing–I’m 55–no surgeries! :>

      • JB June 22, 2011 at 00:49 #

        no surgeries but the botox is starting to show. GORGEOUS dress though! She always dresses so well.

      • Kimma June 22, 2011 at 05:08 #

        Really? Looking at recent pictures of her I felt certain she’d had quite a bit of work done. Maybe it is just botox, but looks like more and doesn’t flatter her.

      • Michelle July 3, 2011 at 02:40 #

        Seriously? Do the words cheek implants mean anything to you, lol? Because Cam has ’em.

    • Julie June 21, 2011 at 19:35 #

      She is looking rough and I don’t think it’s because of her age, but because she doesn’t take care of herself. All that tanning and partying will take its toll. I’ve seen other actresses who are around her age or older who have always been good with skincare and such and don’t look near as old as Diaz. It’s about taking good care of one’s skin. 🙂

      • Rebecca Z June 21, 2011 at 19:58 #

        There are also other pictures of her in the group where she looks better. My original thought was based on the appearances she has been making in the last week and now she’s in NY. I’m thinking she had a right to be tired

  20. Hisadora June 21, 2011 at 02:53 #

    yeah, I thought about this too, thanks dear!

  21. Hisadora June 21, 2011 at 02:19 #

    I think she looks awesome, the dress is so beautiful. BTW, which color of bra should we wear with this kind of dress?

    • Fashion Critic June 21, 2011 at 02:51 #

      Nude, but flash bulbs will always make the bra visible in this type of dress so it’s a no win situation unless you line the dress.

  22. Bec June 21, 2011 at 02:04 #

    she looks like Goldie Hawn in the second picture :-/
