From her surprisingly soulful singing voice to HelloGiggles, we’re totally obsessed with Zooey Deschanel. And whether you love her or hate her, you have to admit that she’s been on a hot streak lately: She's got a hit show (New Girl) and her quirky Golden Globes manicure was the talk of the red carpet (sorry, Angelina). Even the President of the United States took time out from running the country to wish her a happy birthday!
So, it was no surprise to us that she landed Allure’s February cover, her huge blue eyes and trademark bangs practically popping off the page. "I'm bangs and eyes," she says in the interview. "It's who I am. There have been periods when I've grown my bangs out, but I always cut them back, so it's like, why go through the trouble?"
You can see the newest It Girl – a term Zooey thinks is both confusing and funny – glammed up in Dolce & Gabbana and Jason Wu when the issue hits newsstands January 24th. (Don’t worry, she’ll be making silly faces in all of those fancy frocks). If you can’t wait that long, you can check out photos and behind-the-scenes video from her cover shoot on Allure’s web site.
