We love when celebrities put themselves in the hands of a talented photo/styling/hair/makeup crew and let them do what they do best. It unfortunately doesn't happen as often as it should, usually thanks to a high-powered, but incredibly meddling, publicist. We understand their role in preserving said celeb's image. But we've been on way too many shoots where an awesome photo never got taken because someone didn't think it was the right "message" This makes us appreciate V's cover story (shot by Mert & Marcus) with Cameron Diaz all the more. Cameron's sunny California surfer girl image is great. But thank god she can still have fun and mix it up a bit too. Edgy, early Madonna-inspired Cameron is a very good thing indeed.
