Cameron Diaz thinks that you can tell a whole story with fashion, especially when it comes to her portrayal of different characters.
The blonde actress is currently starring in The Other Woman, a movie depicting the revenge three women seek when they find out their significant other has been unfaithful.
Cameron plays Carly, a scorned girlfriend who realises her boyfriend isn't the man she thought he was.
"I wanted Carly's look to be really put together, you know: she curls her hair, she gets her nails done, she puts her make-up on, she puts her outfits together," Cameron told vogue.co.uk. "That is not at all like me! I am not that person on a daily basis, but that's the fun thing about creating characters. You can really say a lot in the wardrobe, and with the hair and make-up. You can tell a whole story with fashion."
The film co-stars Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, and features costumes designed by super stylist Patricia Field, famed for her Sex and the City fashion statements.
Sports Illustrated model Kate makes her leading lady debut as Amber, but found the lack of wardrobe control a bit of a challenge.
"Wardrobe was a really different experience for me, because I'm used to dressing myself for events or when I'm on set, saying, 'I like this, I want this, I like that,'" mused Kate. "But when I got in the room I was like, 'I don't like that,' and then I realised, 'Oh wait, it's not about me! It's about Amber!'"
