Our Fashion Director Sounds Off On the Newest Celeb-Turned-Designer

While a lot of our favorite celebrities – Gwen Stefani, Victoria Beckham, and Beyoncé, just to name a few –  have made the leap into the fashion world, one I didn’t see coming was Cameron Diaz. But in a surprising move, she’s stepped up as Artistic Director of Pour La Victoire (a Rue favorite).

Not only will Diaz be designing handbags and shoes, but as a co-owner of the label, she’ll also be involved with the brand’s creative, marketing, and advertising.

“I don’t do endorsements really. This is completely different. Being influential in a brand and in its [advertising] campaigns interests me,” Diaz told WWD.com. “I love fashion. It’s a large part of my life. What I wear is looked at. It influences what other people wear because that’s just the world we live in.”

One thing’s for sure: with Cam’s A-lister friends, these new Pour La Victoire designs are about to get a lot of exposure.
