Tuesday: Cameron Diaz

Cameron Diaz in powder blue latex for GQ Magazine (February 1995).

She rose to stardom with roles in The Mask (1994), My Best Friend’s Wedding (1997) and There’s Something About Mary (1998), and is also known for voicing the character of Princess Fiona in the Shrek series (2001–10).

In 1992, when Diaz was 19, she was photographed and videotaped topless for an S&M leather lingerie editorial by John Rutter, photographer, and Clifford Edward Wright, a producer and photographer for Perfect 10 and Boudoir Photography Guide.

Rutter approached Diaz in 2003, offering to sell the pictures and video to her for $3.5m before attempting to sell them to prospective buyers. He claimed that he was offering her first right of refusal to them; she saw it as attempted blackmail and sued him.  

Rutter was convicted of attempted grand theft, forgery, and perjury and sentenced to more than three years in prison. (Read more)

Favourite Fashion Photographer # 2 – Mario Testino!

Mario Testino is such an iconic and legendary photographer by now that it’s hard to believe he grew up wanting to be a priest, or that he dyed his hair pink to get noticed when he did realise he wanted to be a photographer.
He’s shot an overwhelming number of celebrities and cultural icons, from Diana, the Princess of Wales to Emma Watson, Cameron Diaz, Gwyneth Paltrow, Julia Roberts, Kirsten Stewart, Gisele Bündchen, and Lady Gaga.
He and stylist Carine Roitfeld are credited with reviving Gucci in the mid-90s with their ground breaking, provocative ad campaigns. He’s continued to shoot for nearly every magazine, in addition to Burberry, Gucci, Versace, Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana, Salvatore Ferragamo, Estee Launder, Michael Kors, and more.
He continues to receive royal commissions, and in 2002 had a massively successful show at The National Portrait Gallery in London titled Portraits, which went on to tour in other cities internationally.
