Zooey Deschanel took to the red carpet at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live in Hollywood yesterday evening as one of the presenters for the 2012 ESPY Awards.

I always hold my breath when scrolling down any picture of Zooey.

Retro hair – good.

Dress – good.

Accessories – good.

Tights – No. YES. *breathes out*

On this occasion the ‘New Girl’ actress sparkles wearing an Oscar de la Renta gold-and-silver sequined knee-length dress.

I love the pop of red via her red patent belt and nail colour. You can usually rely on Zooey for a quirky touch.

Her accessories included a gold-and-silver Edie Parker confetti clutch, gold Sergio Rossi ‘Cachet’ pumps and Dana Rebecca Designs ‘Agnes Fortune’ earrings.

This would’ve been perfect for me with the addition of gold strappy sandals.

Rose-pink lips and a black Alice band completed her look.

Yay or nay on the styling?
