12Love It or Leave It: Zooey Deschanel’s Plaid Mess

Don’t get me wrong – I love Zooey, and it’s not because some of you think I have to love her, being that I write for her website, Hello Giggles, as well, you’re wrong. I adore Zooey because I think she’s cute and quirky and relatable, and I think there are two groups of people when it comes to loving Zooey – those who do, and those who, well … don’t. I’m among the ones who do, but this dress? Oh dear Lord. Don’t even get me started.

See, I’m a big fan of plaid, despite the fact that everyone in my inner circle of family and friends absolutely abhor it. I like plaid shirts, plaid shorts, plaid skirts … plaid pajama pants, plaid socks, plaid panties … whatever. I love plaid and I’m unashamed to admit it. But this particular plaid? In this particular form? Is bad. Bad, bad, bad. It reminds me of a lightweight spring nightie, and while that’d normally be OK, it’s definitely not something you wear to an awards ceremony. Or at least, I wouldn’t, despite my love of plaid. Girlfriend’s hair and makeup are, as always, on par, but this dress is better left to those who’d wear it to bed instead. You know. Someone like me.

Hook a sister up, Zooey, and send me your cast-offs. I promise not to get egg yolk on it whilst eating breakfast in bed.

    I think she looks amazing!

    I love her in anything =D

    Actually, if she would ditch the cream ribbon around the waist(which, for me, is throwing the whole look off) I think it would be perfect…really really cute.

    Now, of course, I could NOT pull that outfit off but I think she looks adorable.

    i think she looks pretty : )

    I think I would like it much more if it was above the knee. All the material at the bottom is just a bit too much to look at.

  6. Jess says:

    I think it’s pretty and she looks so TALL in it.

  7. tina says:

    that looks f’ing stupid

    She looks lovely. The plaid is darling and suits her. She would not look herself swathed in heavy satin. The cream ribbon works well and shows off her tiny waist.

    Tina should educate herself so she can actually say something.

    Good to see a beautiful women dressed classy in Hollywood, instead of trying to see how fare she can push the envelope and shock the audience. What ever happen to the hollywood of the 20-30 were has all the class gone.

    God I can’t stand her. She just thinks she’s so “precious”.
