Style Icon: Zooey Deschanel

Friday, September 6, 2013
The first time I saw Zooey Deschanel was in the movie 'Elf' with Will Ferrell, and I instantly fell in love with her acting skills and her voice. Little did I know that I would soon fall in love with her style over the years, as she has pretty much owned her own style and the red carpets she has attended. She is Glamour's September cover star and so I thought it would be appropriate to share my common interest in this talented woman!
I'm crushing hard right now on her style both on and off the screen, though Jess Day is pretty much perfect on New Girl as she wears tons of cute and quirky outfits. She maintains this style throughout most her outfits and it gives her a fun style that anyone can emulate. With vintage tea dresses, floral and polka dot patterns, peter pan collars, and cardigans that are just some of her 'staple' pieces. It's not unknown that ModCloth is a must for Zooey, and that just makes me love her even more. She even has her own 'What Would Zooey Wear?' website, which is insane!
This girl can bring it on the red carpet though, and really knows how to turn on the glamour and play homage to classic silhouettes and colors. She likes to pick statement colors and have it be the centerpiece to her accessories and jewelry. She is often seen in Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta, and Naeem Khan!

I think what I love the most about Zooey though is that through all of her talent, beauty, and style she still has a reputation of always being herself. I've never seen her not be genuine or uncomfortable about her individual personality and style. There is confidence and strength in the way she presents herself, and I think that is something to admire. (Images: Zooey Deschanel Web, Marie Claire)
Season 3 of  New Girl needs to be here faster!
Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. I absolutely LOVE Zooey... especially in New Girl. She's so cute, quirky, and totally stylish. And I never made the connection from that blonde girl from elf to her... My goodness.
    Hugs & Kisses,

    1. I really do also! I am so glad that New Girl is doing so well, it's such an insanely funny show that I can't wait to see on screen again. I love that her style on the show just transcends into her real life style, so cute!

      I never did also, and then she was in Almost Famous and I didn't connect that either! It's crazy how much she's been in, and I just loved her already. So great. :D
