Cameron Diaz was one of the first celebs to kick off 2012 with a new chin-length cut, and since then, she has inspired residents of Greenwich, CT to do the same! “Clients with shorter hair are inspired by Cameron Diaz’s look,” said Frederic Fekkai’s creative director Alexandre Chouery. “She chopped off her long blonde hair into a bob, a style that embodies our Greenwich clients.” Diaz’s style is a great option if you’re looking for a blow-dry-and-go style. Her longer layers allow you to wear the cut in a variety of textures, whether you opt for sleek and polished or an effortless wave.

Wine-hued lips are a big trend for fall, and the color looks just as great on your nails! We loved the deep burgundy lacquer Cameron Diaz wore to the TAG Heuer event in New York City—she picked LCN’s nail polish in Walk of Fame—a hue the star’s manicurist Michelle Davignon chose to play off of the dark tones in her Lanvin dress. At first glance, the merlot shade almost looks black, but it contrasts just enough for a sophisticated accent. Pick up the color for just $7.50 at lcnboutique.com.

What’s black and white all over? Celebrity style this season. Stars are taking over the red carpet (and the streets!) in black-and-white ensembles, and we love the graphic color combination! Jessica Alba wore a menswear-inspired black and white number by Narciso Rodriguez to the Environmental Media Awards, Kristen Stewart followed suit in a black-and-white Balenciaga design for the AFI fest screening of her new movie, On the Road, and Cameron Diaz opted for a more feminine take on the trend with a simple satin dress by Stella McCartney at the world premiere of her movie, Gambit, in London. Meanwhile, Gwen Stefani also stepped out across the pond earlier this fall wearing black leather pants, a white turtleneck, and a black blazer.

Blondes had more fun in London last night, where Cameron Diaz and Elle Macpherson were all smiles at a private dinner to celebrate the launch of Piers Adam’s new restaurant Bodo’s Schloss on High Street.
