Bonus Birthday Fugstory: Cameron Diaz and the Charlie’s Angels Junkets


The ones from the Charlie’s Angels 2 circuit missed the birth of GFY by a year. If ONLY we had been earlier on the scene. You all are going to look at these and think, “HOW THE HELL did I forget any of this happened? WHERE WAS I? DO I HAVE SELECTIVE AMNESIA?!?!?!” It’s glorious. Drew Barrymore, you may want to take cover.

    At no time do these three look like they are dressed for the same event. It’s like they just happened to randomly run into each other. Fourteen times.

      EXACTLY!

      Lucy’s blue gown is to die for. More side boob than anybody really needs to show, but spectacular otherwise.

      Yeah, in this photo montage, I think Lucy hung the moon.

      moral of the story: Lucy Liu might be the best looking woman in Hollywood. And STILL! Have you SEEN her lately!?

        This slideshow proves that she does not age at ALL. It’s amazing.

        Dammit! I was going to write that! The entirety of what I’ve taken away from this series of pics is that Lucy Liu is extraordinarily beautiful. And I suspect that will never change.

    You had me at “irrationally minty eyelids”. However, now I immediately want to go watch these films again. Yes. Again.

    I really think that they were drunk/high for at least half of those pictures. Must have been fun press tours!

    UGH – not ONE event they all looked good together. They almost had it in that slide with Cameron’s black dress & gold pattern but THAT DAMN HAT Cameron. WHY

    I loved the first Charlie’s Angels (the sequel, not so much). I love that they are three uniquely beautiful ladies, but the phrase “fashion victim” comes to mind when I see these pics. Unfortunate.

    I know you guys keep saying this but OH MY SKIN HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE LUCY LIU DOES NOT AGE IN FACT SHE’S GETTING YOUNGER.

    (But you know what they say about Asian women: Miraculously non-aging skin – indeterminable age – KA-BOOM menopause – Asian granny. Let’s hope she proves that theory wrong.)

    In defense of photo #3: it was the Kids Choice Awards and therefore dressed appropriately for the event. As for the Pantocalypse, they’re on their own.

    Seriously though, were they perpetually bombed at all these events? Half the time they look like they’re a sash and goofy tiara away from a hen party, not making a red carpet appearance. Not knocking them. Terrible fashion aside, they look like they’re having a fun girls night out.

    They are all so beautiful and Cameron should always wear orange. period.

    Things I have learned from this slideshow:
    1. “PANTS WHAT” is my favourite phrase ever.
    2. Lucy Liu has rocked some seriously pretty dresses and managed to get through the early Noughties relatively unscathed. Yes, there was some stumbles, but compared to the other two she was Middleton levels of tastefully appropriate.
    3. Lucy must be secretly feasting on the innocent blood of virgins to prolong her ridiculously good looks.

    *”were” some stumbles. The monstrous pants have broken my grammar skills.

    What I want to know is how do you make pants too long for Cameron Diaz?

    Oh man, I’d forgotten about Drew’s icing sugar eye makeup phase. That was just so weird. You *should* do a retrospective on her sometime, though: she’s been in the public eye her whole life and is, at the very least, never boring.

    In other news, Cameron Diaz has possibly the world’s best gams. I find her really irritating, but dang if I wouldn’t sell my soul for her legs.

    This slideshow reminded me how much I love Drew Barrymore. And also how dippy most hats look.

    But I will quibble a bit about the 14 year old girl at a ballet formal comment. My ballet school did have a formal, and I wore a strapless minidress with a bubble skirt, IN BLACK!

    “Trend vomit” hahahaha!

    However, you could pull Lucy out of most of these pictures, say they were taken on 31 August 2012 and I would believe it, and also probably think that her outfits were perfectly fine.

    Three beautiful and talented women though. Even though a lot of these outfits are ridiculous, and probably were even by early 00′s standards as well, I like that they were doing something interesting at least. Interesting and Crazy, of course

    so i figured out my issue with cameron… she doesn’t have a waist. it’s not her fault, obviously, she’s got cheese-grater abs, there just isn’t much of a taper at the side. this is also why i think she looks best in things that are either immaculately tailored (see: orange dress from prior slideshow) or sort of drapey in an interesting way. that said, the legs are fabulous. i can’t fault her for trotting them out at every opportunity.

    Lucy does not look like she’s attending the same events as the others. But just imagine being stuck in an elevator with these three!

    wow. i feel like you did that for MY birthday, which isn’t for two whole months! thank you! best early birthday present ever.

    Drew next? Yes, please! Perhaps as a gift to the new mama when she finally pops — which appears to be in the immediate, non-beaming, non-daisy-sunshine-rainbow future: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2195506/A-tired-looking-Drew-Barrymore-awaits-arrival-baby.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

    Ugh, that Westwood dress on Diaz in slide 10 was also fugly on Reese and Nelly Furtado, but also fit them better. on Cameron it looked like it shrunk.

    Did they just take a milliner with them on their round the world press tour or what?

    I just have to agree that Lucy is one gorgeous woman. She does not appear to be aging, but not in the same way that others (N.K. for example) don’t age. Most of her looks here are great and the ones that aren’t great are great-adjacent!

    all I got from the slideshow is that lucy liu is, will always be, flawless.

    Hmm definitely think Lucy had the most fashion wins, but battle by battle here’s my votes:
    1. Lucy (clearly, though a less billowy blouse could have given Drew a shot)
    2. no one (too much carnage)
    3. Drew? (all were fine until the accessorize found them but drew’s to the closest to normal)
    4. Lucy (hands down)
    5. Lucy (the tan is bad but it’s a cute though tween dress vs crackerjacks 1 & 2)
    6. Lucy (Carmeron loses for no shoes)
    7. same
    8. Cameron (close Lucy lost due to chest fit)
    9. Lucy (though maybe Cameron if the shirt is just bunched vs short on one side)
    10. Lucy (no question)
    11. Lucy (love it)
    12. Lucy (sized a tad big but Cameron looks like a bad prom dress)
    13. Lucy (orange is great on Cameron but too too short!)
    14. Cameron (I like the idea of Lucy’s but not the color and execution)

    So that gives 1 win to Drew, 2 to Cameron, and 10 to Lucy…yes the battle is hers.

    Lucy Liu is the clear winner, in my opinion. That blue gown in slide 10 is really the clincher – it’s a gorgeous dress and she looks amazing in it.

    Drew’s chainsaw pants are INSANE.

    Drew is so charming and adorable that any of her unusual clothing or makeup choices are ok with me. She is a delight.
