When It Comes To Fancy Clothes, Zooey Deschanel Gets It

Zooey Deschanel, author of the 2011 treatise, “Stuff I Would Invent If I Had Time: Tights for Skinny Ankles,” spoke to InStyle about her oft-described “adorkable” wardrobe. (Can we agree to retire that adjective?) She and Tommy Hilfiger recently turned out a capsule collection of ‘60s-inspired dresses, and she told the mag, “There is an audience for more modest clothes… I hate that fashion could be something that excludes people.”
Hilfiger aside, Deschanel doesn’t focus on labels. “I remember I was wearing a cute jacket, and I saw this well-known actress — who will remain nameless — with her stylist,” she recounted. “They said, ‘Oh my god, that’s so cute. Where did you get it?’ I told them, and it was not a fancy brand, and they were like, ‘Oh…’ I just thought, ‘Do you not like it anymore because of the brand?’ That's so dumb. And you have just made yourself into a cartoon villain.” Cartoon villain? A Zooey Zinger, if there ever were one. (E!)
