Cameron Diaz has been named the artistic director at fashion house Pour La Victoire.
The Bad Teacher actress will be responsible for the design and marketing of products, and she will also have a hand in the company’s shoe and handbag collections.
Revealing that Cameron was initially nervous about the project, the actress tells Women’s Wear Daily, “Pour La Victoire gives me the opportunity to create something timeless. There is a lot I have to learn about the business. I am interested in learning how collections are created… I want to say that it is going to be fun, but it os deeper than that.”
Cameron Diaz is not only a spokesperson for PLV, she also owns an undisclosed stake in the brand. Cameron Diaz said, “I do not do endorsements really. This is completely different. Being influential in a brand and in its (advertising) campaigns interests me. I love fashion. It is a large part of my life. What I wear is looked at. It influences what other people wear because that is just the world we live in.”
Diaz her collection will not hit U.S. stores until next spring (14), but she will be sharing her favorite selections as part of the Cameron’s Picks campaign later this year (13). (Source)
Cameron Diaz is getting in touch with her evil side. After playing the morally challenged central character in Bad Teacher, she has been cast to play the villainous Miss Hannigan in the Will Smith and Jay-Z produced remake of the hit musical Annie.
The character rules the orphanage with an iron rod but meets her match in Annie, who will be portrayed by Quvenzhane Wallis, who earlier this year was the youngest person ever nominated for the best actress Oscar.
Oscar winner Jamie Foxx is also in line to star in the film, which will hit screens in late 2014.
The movie is being directed by Will Gluck from a script written by Emma Thompson and later rewritten by Aline Brosh McKenna. (Source)
Cameron Diaz’s hit comedy Bad Teacher is getting a sequel. Sony Pictures has given Bad Teacher 2 the green light.
Filmmaker Jake Kasdan, who took charge of the 2011 movie, will return to direct the follow-up, although it is not yet known if Diaz will reprise her role as an alcoholic, drug-taking school teacher for the second installment.
The original release, starring Jason Segel and Diaz’s ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake as the actress’ geeky onscreen crush, grossed $216 million worldwide and has since inspired a TV sitcom based on the film. (Source)
