Cameron Diaz accepted her Teen Choice Award surfboard and stepped back to the press room to answer a few questions this evening. The actress looked smoking hot in her strapless mini dress and unique heels — short dresses were the picks of the night, so check out all the Teen Choice Awards red carpet pictures. Still, Cameron says she's not so into the fashion world and she talked about her teenage style as well as the best advice she has for people in high school now. Here's highlights:
- On her teenage style compared to now: "I think it's the same in a weird way. I've always liked clean, minimal, and classic, but with a detail. A little bit of an edge. I've never been a real ruffly girl or really feminine."
- On fashion trends: I've never been in trends. I don't understand trends. As soon as you're there, they leave again. I tried on a dress today that was Spring 2012 and I was like where are we? What is wrong? Why can't I just buy a dress for Summer 2011? That's all I need. By the time we get to 2012, I'll be wearing something for 2013, so it doesn't really make any sense."
- On the best life advice she got as a teen: "Where you're at as a teenager, that's not the real world. Outside of high school is where you start living life. The things that happen in high school, it's not the end of the world. We live in a bubble in high school, but anything that's happens that feels like the end of the world or the best thing that's ever going to happen to you. People should set themselves free from that and start life experience anew [after high school].
- Best advice she's ever gotten: "Be yourself."
