I’d always had an enthusiastic love affair with vintage clothing, but the more I saw pictures of Zooey Deschanel in vintage dresses, the more my need for vintage dresses increased. A headband in her hair on the red carpet caused me to increase my supply of them tenfold, and there have been several occasions that I’ve gone to my hair dresser, Zooey photo in hand, in order to trade in my side swept-bangs for straight blunt ones.
Zooey Deschanel is my style icon because not only is she is possibly the most adorable woman on the planet but her style seems to transcend trend or era. She wears vintage like she was meant for it and in a way that never looks dowdy or outdated. Even her hair (sans a short stint with a blonde bob) and makeup are flawless and enviable.
Zooey’s style consists of a few key elements: a vintage or vintage-inspired stand out piece, adorable heels or flats, and tights. It’s a look that’s easy to emulate, but hard to perfect–and until I do, Zooey Deschanel will always remain my style icon!
