How To Steal Amanda Woods’ LA Chic Style In ‘The Holiday’

It’s not hard to fall in love with holiday romcom The Holiday. The charming film keeps you coming back for more at every turn. And cue the cliché, while Amanda Woods (played by Cameron Diaz) may start off as a high-strung Hollywood movie trailer director, she quickly transforms into the lovable character we remember. 

And whether it’s your first or 10th time watching The Holiday, you’re sure to be struck by all of Amanda Woods’ ultra chic outfits and her beautiful no-makeup makeup. If after watching the movie you’ve ever wondered how to dress or do your makeup like her (don’t we all?), then you’re in luck because we have a guide for doing just that!

Cozy Loungewear

One of Amanda Woods’ best and arguably most iconic looks was actually loungewear. She manages to elevate sweatpants into looking chic with quality items and a neutral palette. And the beauty of it is, it’s super easy to do the same.

Chic Outerwear

If you’re going to attract a very handsome single English single dad while staying at the English cottage, you’re going to need some fabulous outerwear. Amanda Woods’ coat probably cost thousands of dollars, but these options are more affordable. Stick to neutrals again!

Keep It Classy with Black + White

This is a general fashion rule for a lot of fashion icons, but basics are the backbone of any wardrobe. A simple, good-quality turtleneck is a must-have, preferably in a neutral color and a natural fiber like wool or cotton.

The Makeup


Amanda Woods has the no-makeup makeup look down to a tee. I have a few products in mind perfect for recreating her look, like a pinky nude lipstick and a no-makeup makeup eyeshadow palette that will give your eyes some subtle dimension.
