Cameron Diaz stars in TAG Heuer campaign

Cameron Diaz takes on an exciting new role—as TAG Heuer’s ambassador and muse for the new LINK LADY collection.
The new range is dedicated to beautiful and rebellious women around the world.

Cameron Diaz’s climb to the top is unusual because she started at the top.
In 1994, she starred in her very first movie—opposite Jim Carrey in The Mask, which made her an instant star.
Then, she defied convention by choosing small, independent films like The Last Supper, Feeling Minnesota, and Head Above Water, followed by ensemble films and blockbusters that achieved both critical acclaim and box office success around the world.
Her role as Lotte Schwarz in Being John Malkovich was a creative gamble that paid off as went on to star in blockbuster hits like My Best Friend’s Wedding, There’s Something About Mary and Charlie’s Angels.

On her recent partnership with TAG Heuer, President and CEO Jean-Christophe Babin says, “Cameron has been so interested in what goes in to making a luxury watch–about the designs, and about our brand in general–that I knew she was the perfect choice to help us launch this new series. The LINK LADY, will reach out further to our female market, with products that appeal to women all around the world.”

“I want a watch that is more than just a timepiece, it should be like my favorite piece of jewelry,” says Diaz.
“The new Link Lady is modern yet timeless, sexy and elegant and I’m equally comfortable wearing it on the red carpet or in my day-to-day life.”

Her three-year partnership with TAG Heuer will also serve to benefit and raise awareness for programs that empower women, including UN Women. “I am deeply appreciative that TAG Heuer shares my desire to support women who are not free to pursue even the most basic goals, simply because of their gender,” says Ms. Diaz.

Where the boys are

In Manila, it’s very rare to see so many cute guys in one place at one time, so Grace and I were happy to have come to the Penguin event at Greenbelt 5.
They had a fashion show directed by Robby Carmona and we had the best view standing in front of the stage.
It opened with a hot young actor named Xian Lim, who is Kim Chiu’s rumored boyfriend.
He stands around 6’2″, with a smile and stare that will break your heart.
Let me tell you, my camera can do no justice.

This guy has no body fat okay

Not usually a fan of the cotton candy hairstyle, but it worked for the show

This model just really killed me and Grace. The photos don’t do him any justice!! We don’t know his name. Do you??


There were girls too

Cuteness overload. As if that weren’t enough, they had to add DJ Callum David to the mix.

What happened to Jenna?

As I struggle with my own metabolism, I find it hard to watch Jenna Hamilton (actress Ashley Rickards) put on weight in Awkward‘s Season 2.
Why I love this show so much: it reminds me of my growing up years with all these crushes and getting to know boys for the first time.
We dealt with the mean girls and the popular girls in school while trying to find our own identity.
We tried to fit in or we did our own thing.


Awkward takes me back to the ’80s when I was really awkward. And we love Jenna Hamilton because she’s the regular girl who gets noticed by two popular boys in school—one of them, a class president who drops a cheerleader for her.
In Season 1, Jenna went to school with her arm in a cast after surviving freak accident in her bathroom.


She did not expect to stand out this way, but she managed


She fell in love with Matty McKibben


Got bullied by the mean girl, Sadie


But despite the mean girls’ plot to take her down, she ended up with the golden boy, Jake Rosati.


A highly anticipated Season 2 finally started last June 28.
But after watching the second episode last night, I was very sad to see Jenna’s looks deteriorate. She seems to be the only one in the cast who has gained weight drastically. This they tried to explain by having Jenna’s mom cook her favorite food every night to make up for a grave sin.


Check her tummy in this photo


Aside from the weight gain, she’s been looking especially haggard. Instead of reminding me of high school, she reminds me of being pregnant.


It’s getting hard to believe why these two guys would be fighting over her


What’s even more surprising is in Season 2, mean girl Sadie drops a lot of weight. What did she do??

Here’s hoping Jenna gets her groove back this season. I need my favorite protagonist to look cute and credible, not homely.
