Zooey Deschanel In Monique Lhuillier – Teen Choice Awards

Zooey Deschanel is full of surprises when it comes to her red carpet looks these days.

The first thing I noticed when she arrived on the red carpet for the 2012 Teen Choice Awards on Sunday evening was the smoothed-out locks in place of Zooey’s signature curls.

Second: no tights for a second time in a row.

The ‘New Girl’ actress chose to wear a cobalt-blue Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013 sleeveless dress with a leather belt.

I’m delighted to see Zooey fully embrace the summer event, but I would’ve loved this look had the dress been a bit shorter.

Her Giuseppe Zanotti bow-adorned black pumps pull down the look, but I do love her Jimmy Choo clutch.

Zooey Deschanel In Oscar de la Renta – 2012 ESPY Awards

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?

Zooey Deschanel In Lisa Ho – ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ 200th Episode Celebration

Zooey Deschanel helped Fox celebrate the 200th episode of ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ held at CBS Television City in California on Monday.

Dressed in a Lisa Ho plum cocktail mini dress with ruffled sleeves, the actress made sure she also wore her favourite accessory: black tights.

Due to the fall-like hue, the tights aren’t as frustrating as they have been on several occasion, but a summery look would’ve been preferred.

I also believe that Zooey should’ve worn her hair up as her retro wavy do is competing with those ruffles.

The only thing I love about this look is her nail art.

Zooey Deschanel In Oscar de la Renta – 2012 Critics’ Choice Television Awards

Zooey Deschanel won the Best Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in ‘New Girl’ at the 2012 Critics’ Choice Television Awards, held in Beverly Hills on Monday night.

After her 2012 Billboard Music Awards look, my first reaction to this was, “Thank god she’s not wearing tights”.

The actress is the first to nab a look from the Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013 collection.

She opted to style her floral appliqué red scoopneck sleeveless dress with a tonal grosgrain belt, which I prefer over the metal accent on the runway model.

Zooey accessorized with a red clutch, Graziela earrings and black Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle’ pumps.

Side-swept waves and a red lip colour completed her much-improved look.

Zooey Deschanel In Moschino – 2012 Billboard Music Awards

Zooey Deschanel joined many stars on the red carpet at the MGM Grand Garden for the 2012 Billboard Music Awards, held in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sunday night.

She opted to wear a Moschino Fall 2012 dress.

As always there’s a 60s theme to Zooey’s look, starting with the silver embellished sleeveless cocktail dress with contrast cream trim and ending with the retro updo.

Sadly I can’t get behind this look because of the tights.

I know they are her thing and I have given her several passes, but on this occasion they are hideous with this chic mini dress.

Horn-shaped dangling earrings and Miu Miu black pumps accessorized her look.

Zooey joins Fan Bingbing by sporting an orange lip colour.
