Fashion Crush  Friday
Zooey Deschanel

Who’s that girl? It’s…Zooey! Even though this retro doll has recently stolen our hearts in The New Girl, Ms. Deschanel is anything but new when it comes to the fashion scene. Whether she’s slinking in a plunging Proenza Schouler gown on the cover of Elle Magazine or being the all-American girl next door spokeswoman for Tommy Hillfiger, Zooey encompasses the entire spectrum of classic fashion. By mixing silhouettes that span the decades and keeping faithful to her own quirky styling, Deschanel seems to have this fashion thing down pact. And let’s be honest, who wouldn’t want her dress collection?
