Before the Manic Pixie Indie Dream Girl phase happened, every girl aspired to be the free-spirited woman. Our icons included Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore, and Kate Hudson. They were charming, funny, sweet, young, and coincidentally all blonde. I’ve watched my fair share of movies growing up and while I loved the 90’s romantic comedies taking place in high school, I liked to pretend that I actually knew all that was going on in movies like There’s Something About Mary or Charlie’s Angels. I was age eight and ten, respectively, when those movies came out.
Cameron Diaz is just that actress that remains to be unforgettable despite not always being in the spotlight. I absolutely love this shot of her on the new cover for InStyle. The editorial isn’t my favorite, but you can peep the rest of the images here!
