Although actress/singer Zooey Deschanel has had a busy year, she always has time to look her best at countless events and red carpet premieres. The star of Our Idiot Brother (as Rudd’s bohemian younger sister) and upcoming Fox show New Girl (as a heartbroken, awkward geek, who moves in with three guys after being dumped) loves to switch up her look. Whether sophisticated at the premiere of the Weinstein Co.’s film Aug. 16 (in an attention-grabbing black-and-white ruffled Moschino dress and YSL heels), flirty at the Fox All Star party Aug. 5 (in a white, one-shoulder number with black embellishments and a full-skirt) or feminine (in a pink and green floral Kate Spade shift- dress) at the Winnie the Pooh premiere July 10—she wrote and performed for the film’s soundtrack—Deschanel doesn’t miss a beat. The blue-eyed brunet shared some of her style tips with THR.
