Zooey Deschanel: Fox’s New Girl

Zooey Deschanel

Zooey Deschanel may be the New Girl on Fox this fall, but this actress/musician/model has been making her mark on the industry for quite awhile. She played Summer Finn in the offbeat (500) Days of Summer and even guest starred on big sis Emily Deschanel’s show, Bones. Zooey’s indie and feminine persona made her a natural choice for advertisements for both Cotton and Rimmel London. She’s also an accomplished singer-songwriter with several songs prominently featured in Disney’s upcoming Winnie the Pooh film.

Now a member of the Fox family, Zooey made her requisite appearance at the 2011 Fox Upfront Presentation last month. Her bright pink BCBGMAXAZRIA frock featured a ruffled skirt and black belt, which the rising star amplified by adding black tights and heels. When she performed with her group, She & Him during the first day of Coachella in April 2010, Zooey rocked a pale blue halter dress with banded waist on stage.

Zooey has long been an expert at mixing fashion, function, and fun. Take the Christian Dior strapless bubble-hemmed fuchsia gown she picked for the New York City showing of The Happening in June 2008. A Swarovski crystal encrusted Mary Norton clutch and nude heels served as accessories. The next day, the actress arrived for a taping of David Letterman in a champagne-colored Monique Lhuillier Spring 2008 offering with a sweetheart neckline and black heels. The dress was slightly modified from the runway with Zooey’s version showcasing a tiered skirt.

Decked out in an icy Erin Fetherston Resort 2009 number, Zooey attended the Yes Man Los Angeles premiere in December 2008. The silver headband, glitter tights, and metallic pumps seemed like overkill especially since the dress came with that feather shoulder accent. She was all bundled up on the fourth day of the Sundance Film Festival in January 2009 wearing Karen Walker's blue frock coat over a Lover's Disciple mini dress. Zooey also had on Loeffler Randall's Agatha Flats, J. Crew's Toscana earmuffs, and Hansel from Basel's cable knit pompom tights.

A Moschino clutch, Ferragamo heels and velvet bow belt went beautifully with the blue Lela Rose Spring 2009 dress Zooey donned for the 2009 Film Independent Spirit Awards in February 2009. For the Los Angeles premiere of her charming film (500) Days of Summer back in June 2009, Zooey selected an embellished navy Naeem Khan Resort 2010 dress and Christian Louboutin heels in a fresh shade of light blue.

Definitely a big fan of tights, Zooey had on a black pair in conjunction with her Luella Spring 2010 dress at the 13th Annual Hollywood Awards Gala Ceremony in October 2009. The bow on the back of her hair tied in seamlessly with those Luella bow accented heels and her black Chanel bag. This Karen Walker prom dress Zooey sported in November 2009 for the 2009 Hamilton Behind The Camera Awards presented by Movieline.com got an extra burst of color thanks to a red striped skinny belt.
