Cameron Diaz In Valentino – Valentino Spring 2012 Couture Presentation

Cameron Diaz attended the Valentino Spring 2012 Couture presentation in Paris yesterday, which closed Couture Fashion Week.

She of course wore a look from Valentino’s Spring 2012 collection.

Whilst I love the white floral lace button-down dress, its more Elle Fanning or Alexa Chung than Cameron Diaz.

I have been a long-time campaigner for Cameron to show off her legs more often, but after a succession of mature looks this week, this feels very out of sync.

Nude Christian Louboutin pumps and a Valentino clutch completed her look.

    I love this look, it’s something refreshing, compared to the other looks she’s been sporting lately…

  • Katie

    Its just not her style though, the dress is cute!

  • Manja

    love it,cute and stylish

  • Dhppy

    I really like this look on Cameron. It’s a welcome departure for her.

  • Lee

    I love her in this dress, I think it’s a great length. The style isn’t really young either, no puffy sleeves or bows or empire waist or any such thing. I don’t like the color of her hair but I’m glad it’s straightened.

  • No, I love this look on her. I think the pointy ladylike heels give it the mature chic element it needs for someone older than Elle Fanning et al.

  • mattison

    I’ve always liked Cam. I do find myself wishing her hair was even shorter to really make something this cutesy work, but I’m definitely intrigued by her choices lately and looking forward to more from her!

  • she looks gorgeous! I love the new hair and think the dress is age appropriate….she certainly still has the legs for it

  • Laura Brice

    The hair makes her look 20 years younger, absolutely gorgeous. She looks divine

  • andrea

    I think this dress is a nice departure from what we’re used to. I completely disagree with the comments about this dress being too young, to me its more “Sunday Brunch”, which brings to mind an older group of women.

  • marina

    It is longer than what she usually wears in every event. She usually shortens her skirts, so it is not too bad. She is not even 40, and it is a nice dress, Similar in style to a Chloe(?) short dress worn by Aniston, Meg Ryan and J. Garner, so it is in the age range.

    • Nat39

      “She is not even 40″…love that 🙂 !
      It´s not about the length really, had it been a sexy LBD, would´ve been a different story. It´s the style of the dress that clashes with her overall very mature “rougher” appearance. All the celebs. that you´ve mentioned have a lot softer appearances compared to Cameron´s even if they are in the same/similar age group.

      • marina

        Not meg ryan!

  • karen

    I totally disagree with many of you. I think Cameron looks fantastic. She looks fresh. Her hair goes with this look. It’s a different look than she’s been wearing the past few days which is why I like it even more…..variety works on her.

  • Faellie

    I’m going to disagree, as I think Cameron looks grown-up and elegant in this. It’s well past time she dropped the Hollywood starlet version of glamour and/or the surfer girl looks on the red carpet, and this does that.

    • Jones19

      Agreed, this is not too young for her at all, she looks great.

      • Snowlion

        Agree. I’m also like her hair with this dress.

  • EmmaWoodhouse

    I would love this on Elle but it’s just not right for Cameron.

    • +1, though I love the dress. Im beginning to feel like Cameron is parading around in costume. None of this feels true to her “style” (if you can call it that).

  • Nat39

    way too young for her, more mature chic looks work best for her. Wouldn`t wanna see this short girlie dress on Alexa Chung either, she should start opting for longer chic ensembles as well.

  • fashion~lover

    This dress is one of my favorites from the Valentino spring collection. I’m just wondering, why has Cameron Diaz started to attend all those Couture shows this year?

    • Fashion Critic

      She has a Couture shoot in Paris with InStyle US.

  • Alina

    I agree that this is a little too young for her.

    • Emi

      Yes, it’s sad to say but this dress is for someone younger, it’s too girlie. Why aging is such a terrible thing?

      • Alina

        I think aging is a great thing when you do it gracefully -> you accept it and you don’t act like you’re 20 years younger.

  • Kennedy

    Stunning but hate the bloody hair.
