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…

This seemed to be the week of bobbleheads, for both men and women alike. Everyone needs to stop losing and start gaining weight, like now.
Go through these looks of the week and give me your picks for who looks BEST, WORST, and most WTF. Mine are at the bottom!
(P.S.: For SAG Awards fashion, check out this post.)
Anna Wintour. Giiiiirl…
Jennifer Lawrence at her most Jennifer Lawrenciest.
The Golden Globes happened last night and man, what a trainwreck! People were drunk and cursing all over the place. And Clooney wasn’t even there.
But you know what was there? The best, worst, and most WTF celebrity fashion had to offer. Let’s take a look through all these GG outfits and pick out which ones were deserving of BEST, WORST, and WTF.
Kelly Osbourne. From the front, this looked lovely. From the back, it looks like the dress is covered in fire ants and there’s nothing anybody can do about it. It belongs to the ants now.
2013 Emmy Awards have come and gone and a few people cared. This post is for you. Let’s take a look at the best, worst, and WTF of 2013 Emmy fashion. I know Lena Dunham’s outfit is bound to get a few people talking.
Don’t you just love New Girl? Well into its third season now, it’s really turned into a legit hilarious and clever show with great characters. Plus, hello, Zooey Deschanel is the cutest. Her embodiment of Jess really takes the show to the next level and it’s worked out really well.
Well, now Jess is due to get a new love interest on the show (JUST HOOK UP WITH NICK, YOU ARE MEANT TO BE) in the form of Taye Diggs, who will be a guy named Artie in the seventh episode. Considering his stint spans all of one episode, I doubt that’s going to work out.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Described as a “smooth, confident ladies’ man,” Artie has his eyes set on Jess, which proves to be problematic for her new relationship with Nick. And New Girl fans, take note: The episode in question also heralds the return of Damon Wayans Jr. The Happy Endings star, who played Coach in the pilot episode, kicks off a multi-episode arc at the same time.
Fair enough. Also, thank god Damon Wayans Jr is coming back. Ever since Happy Endings was canceled well, WELL before its time, I was hoping we’d get to see him back on TV. But seriously, I really miss Happy Endings.
“I’m not going to answer that question. I’m not mad at you for asking that question, but I’ve said it before: I don’t think people ask men those questions.”

Nobody needs to even bother messing with my girl Zooey Deschanel – she’s adorable. Go ahead and try to deny it! Pretend she’s too twee or too hipster or too whatever for your tastes, and then get with the program and realise she’s cute and get over it. Anyway, Fox News apparently didn’t get the message, nor did Kansas-based closed-captioning service Caption Solutions, who falsely identified her as the Boston bomber last week, as you probably remember:
It was by far the weirdest – and outright stupidest – mistake I’ve seen Fox make in a while. Well, no, I take that back. I just kinda don’t understand how it happened to begin with. But no matter! Caption Solutions has come forward and offered Zooey a formal apology. Because, you know, this is that big of a deal (it totally isn’t).
From The New York Post:
The Kansas-based Caption Solutions says it and its captioner “deeply” regrets the snafu. In a statement, company president Kala J. Patterson said they “sincerely apologize for this error.”
The onscreen text appeared last Friday on KDFW in Dallas-Fort Worth during their coverage of the manhunt for a Boston bombing suspect. Accompanying a photo of accused suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was a caption that read: “Marathon Bomber. He is 19-year-old Zooey Deschanel.”
Viewers noticed Deschanel’s name and quickly posted screen grabs of the gaffe.
When Deschanel learned of the TV captioning blunder, she tweeted: “Whoa! Epic closed captioning FAIL!”
It’s a slow news day, leave me alone.
