Zooey Deschanel In Oscar de la Renta – BAFTA Brits To Watch Event

I almost fell off my chair when I saw Zooey Deschanel walk the red carpet at the BAFTA Brits To Watch Event, which was held at the Belasco Theatre in LA yesterday evening.

It’s a shame the shadows are masking this momentous occasion.

The self proclaimed lover of tights didn’t opt for her red carpet safety blanket whilst wearing her Oscar de la Renta Fall 2011 dress.

I for one am glad, because her blush silk organza embroidered dress with a gathered skirt and scalloped hem looks perfect without them.

Brunette wavy locks tumble down the bodice of her tea-length dress which accessorizes with a gold clutch and matching ankle strap pumps.

Kudos to her for stepping out of her comfort-zone.

    Too princessy for me. Not a fan.

    i don’t think she stepped out of her confort zone just because she’s not wearing tights. This dress is beautiful on her but it looks like the type of dresses she usually wear.

    One of the best from this event, easily. She’s glowing!

    The lack of tights was the firs thing I noticed in this pic. She looks lovely. A beautiful dress.

    Great dress. I bet it’s even more beautiful in person. I suspect a lot of detail to be going on on that skirt.

    She looks lovely, it’s such a beautiful dress. She looks elegant but it’s still cute just like Zooey.
    I really really like it and she looks really comfortable too, which is not so often with her on red carpet.

      Totally agree–she looks lovely and it is true to who she is. It is a gorgeous dress

      oops i’ve clicked to fast… grrr …whew! ….yes about the hair could have been over or and behind the shoulders!…and that too would have posed a problem bout the frange….and the total hair style again!
      the best thing was tied up the dram hair and clipped em up!

    Lovely but I wish she had worn her hair in an elegant updo.

  13. robbie July 10, 2011 at 14:24 #
