Zooey Deschanel is the beloved icon of vintage-loving fashion-girls everywhere. And for good reason. Her whimsical outfits are just the right amount of twee, rarely venturing into costumey territory. And who could forget the black tights (even in summer) trend she launched a few years back?
Here are Zooey’s 10 best outfits ever:
At the Sundance Film Festival, January 2007
Even before the worldwide fame that came with (500) Days of Summer and New Girl, Zooey was marching to the beat of her own drummer. This eclectic, vintage-style frock is right up her alley. And she proves that you can totally pull off white shoes in the winter. If you like the intricate pattern of her dress, you’ll love our slightly more subtle Alison Dress in Grey.
Arriving at The Late Show with David Letterman, June 2008
Zooey looks just like an old-Hollywood starlet in this showstopper of a dress. Its golden shade looks great against her peachy skin-tone.
On The Tonight Show with Conan O’ Brien, July 2009
One great thing about Zooey’s style is that it’s as relatable as it is adorable. This all-blue outfit with an A-line silhouette would look just as great in a cubicle as it does on national TV. (In fact, we might just wear that tomorrow!)
At the Vanity Fair Oscar party, February 2011
This black lace look is classic Zooey with a little bit of an edge. She’s not straying from her tried-and-true style, but this sheer dress is more grown up than her usual ensembles.
At the Golden Globe Awards, January 2012
This sleek look is a bit of a departure from Zooey’s usual style. It’s as if she wore it just to show us that, when it comes to fashion, she’s no one-trick pony.
At the Vanity Fair Oscar party, February 2013
This dress is so beautiful that it’s practically heart-stirring. The main colour of the gown almost exactly matches her skin tone, and it’s complemented by pretty pastel flowers.
At the Costume Institute Gala, May 2013
The retro hair and makeup Zooey favours pair perfectly with a preppy gown. She looks like she should be partying alongside Jackie Kennedy.
At the Elle Women in Television Celebration, January 2014
Zooey looks so lovely in an A-line, polka dot frock. For a similar (albeit slightly more casual) look, try our Fiona Dress in Navy.
At a Fox programming presentation, May 2014
And just like that, Zooey makes us all want to rush out and buy peplum dresses again. We also love the formal flats.
Leaving a hair salon in Beverly Hills, July 2014
Only Zooey would dress so charmingly to get her hair done. We love the midi heels!
