Cameron Diaz: Style Evolution (PHOTOS)

Cameron Diaz has been a part of Hollywood's A-list since playing a sexy nightclub performer in 1994's The Mask. Ever since then, the leggy star has become as recognizable for her blonde hair and blue eyes as she is for her comedic timing and charming disposition.
