Zooey Deschanel made some comments recently for InStyle magazine that made me applaud. Well, I didn’t literally applaud my computer screen, but I sort of nodded and agreed internally. Like you do. She says that not every woman is “dying” to give birth and it brings out the “fiery feminist” in her. I say, you go Zooey. You go. Via Huffington Post:
Like every woman is dying to give birth! I don’t think so. Nobody asks guys that. And you go into a supermarket and every tabloid is like, ‘Pregnant and Alone!’ Stuck in the 1950s ideal of how a woman should live her life. This brings out the fiery feminist in me.
She’s right — NOT every woman is “dying to give birth” — I’m one of them, and I’m glad someone is voicing this.
I just wish InStyle didn’t photoshop the everloving Zooey out of her. This is what she looks like. I don’t know who is supposed to be on that cover (below). She’s so beautiful, I don’t know why anyone would attack her with photoshop the way that magazine did.
BUT ANYWAY, what do you think of her comments?

I kinda don’t get why the whole #nomakeupselfie thing ever took off, for anyone. Not everyone wears makeup, and it’s not necessarily something to be applauded that you haven’t piled your face with cosmetics before you do your duck lips for the camera. It’s called being a normal human being… but whatever, I guess.
Zooey Deschanel must’ve been feeling brave on Saturday morning, as she posted the above #nomakeupselfie and #nofilter pic on her Instagram page (and cross-posted to Twitter) to show everyone what she looks like without all her slap on. She looks… how you’d expect a human being who just woke up to look like. But good for her, I guess! You go, girl?

I still haven’t watched this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live with Seth Rogen hosting, but his monologue went viral yesterday considering all the famous faces who turned up to… support him, I guess?
That’s right – James Franco, Zooey Deschanel and Taylor Swift all turned up to get in on the fun, and I guess it was sorta amusing or something? I dunno – I rarely think the monologues (or the show in general) is anything worthwhile these days, but this is okay. I wish this show would realize, however, that it takes more than extra celebrity cameos to make people laugh. Maybe just try being funny with the regular cast you have? I dunno.

Tommy Hilfiger probably isn’t the first designer to come to mind when you think of Zooey Deschanel‘s fashion aesthetic, but indeed they’re working together to create a new capsule collection for the brand, and the stuff is actually pretty cute, right? It’s all a little too patriotic for my liking, but it’s definitely workable and Zooey stayed true to herself for sure.
Here’s what Hilfiger told WWD:
“They are Sixties-inspired short dresses,” Hilfiger noted. “There is a lot of red, white and blue, but done in a Zooey way with interesting detail and flirty fabrics. They are very Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy — really from the Sixties in London. That’s not something we would normally put in our regular sportswear line — maybe we’d be inspired by the Sixties for the runway, but it’s a new way to look at fun, American classics.”
Those include several shirtdresses, for example, as well as peekaboo numbers featuring prints inside pleats. Piqué and oxford cloth, as well as silks and linens, are among the fabrics. The overall aesthetic merges Mod with nautical, or “Modical” as Deschanel, who named each dress after a friend, described it.
And Zooey’s thoughts on the collaboration:
“I am a fashion fanatic, and I am always looking for new ways to incorporate vintage, feminine pieces into my own wardrobe,” she said. “Tommy and I share many of the same inspirations — old-school music, classic films and old Hollywood icons — and his guidance during the design process helped to put a really unique twist on each piece.”
Nice. This collection will sell like hotcakes, I’m sure – I don’t think I’ve met a girl in her 20s who wasn’t absolutely obsessed with Zooey and her style, so I think we can all agree it’ll be a success. A couple more pics below…
