look for less - cameron diaz

casa naranja's fashion contributor liliana vazquez of cheap chica's style to guide did a phenomonal job at recreating cameron's chic summer look.


Cameron Diaz graces the cover of Vogue ’s June issue with all of her cool California style and charm!  The woman only gets better with age and I always find her laid-back and effortless style such an inspiration!

In this gorgeous spread shot by Mario Testino, Diaz shows off some completly white-washed looks which prove that white can be just as chic as all black…as long as you stay away from the red wine!  She even “goes green” in an exquisite 3.1 Phillip Lim natural silk dress and looks beyond beautiful.

Here’s one look from the shoot that you recreate from head to toe for under $85
