Back in the summer (ahh, remember summer?), our fashion director wrote about a surprising development in Cameron Diaz’s career: the actress had stepped up as artistic director of Pour La Victoire. Now, several months later, the much-anticipated first designs from Cam’s foray into the fashion world are out, and the results are much like Cameron herself – sleek and sexy, yet still down to earth.

Done up in neutral hues, luxe leather, and rich suede, the strappy heels and booties feature lower heels, because comfort is just as important as style to the celebrity-turned-designer. “For both Charlie’s Angels movies, we wore heels, ran in heels, did kung fu in heels,” she says. “We weren’t pretending. Heel function is a very important thing for me.”

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.
