    Proving red carpet ‘dos don’t have to all be about look-at-me glitz and glamour, Cameron Diaz joined Beyonce in a lesson in understated style at the world premiere of the Jay-Z produced film, Annie, in New York last night.

    Breaking with tradition, Marie Claire’s January cover star wisely chose to brave the freezing NY temperatures with a pair of thick opaque tights, ankle boots, and an elegantly shimmering charcoal dress with stepped hem and fitted body.

    The four-time Golden Globe nominee plays Miss Hannigan, the role made famous by the iconic Carol Burnett in 1982. With her hair in a low pony tail and a bold red lip, the biggest statement of all was Cameron’s mysterious stack of rings on her wedding finger, continuing to spark those rumours she and boyfriend Benji Madden are engaged.

    In a similar understated vein, Beyonce wowed in a monochromatic mix of graphic print coat, cut-out detail shoes, grey T-shirt dress and black felt trilby. Oh, and the biggest cocktail ring we’ve ever seen.

    Simple, elegant and cool. We love.
