GirlCrush: Zooey Deschanel

What is it about Zooey Deschanel that has bloggers from all walks of life, fashion bloggers especially (oh, and some geeks too), gushing about her?

Is it her quirky, irresistible charm? Her playful attitude?

Well, I think it's partly due to those bangs. Those bangs that have become sort of a trademark. Those bangs that look so utterly perfect on her. (I'm beginning to sound like one of those geek bloggers now. harhar)

And of course her amazing talents; not only does she act but she can also sing! She's one half of She and Him. Try listening to their version of The Mamas and the Papas' Dream a Little Dream of Me and get a sampling of her incredibly soothing voice. She dances in the videos and she also writes all their songs! All that talent in one  pretty package. It makes one wonder whether He does play favorites.:))

I first encountered the lovely Ms. Deschanel through Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous (which has an awesome soundtrack by the way). Her character was sassy and funny. She was the sister of  the main character, William, and was very instrumental to her brother's love for music. I love that movie to bits.

Then there were those magazine articles and ads. This one stood out the most for me.

It is so Zooey; the charming bicycle with flowers in the basket, the bows, her clothes, the all-around feel of it.

She has also become known for her vintage style. She plays with colors and has a thing for tights. And she always looks so feminine.

She now wears tights less often. She apparently wore them due to her insecurity with her legs; she has insecurities like the rest of us which of course makes us love her even more.

Her best accessory is definitely her hair: her curly, dark brown locks which looks great even when it's messy. Why can't we all have that kind of hair? And maybe then we can be just as charming and gorgeous and talented!

She is rarely seen wearing pants but she does wear them occasionally.

Oh, and she likes bows too. We have that in common.:D

Zooey is not your typical Hollywood celebrity; she is a very private person, she does not dress herself with signature clothes from head to toe and she isn't seen in every red carpet event. She calls herself an old-fashioned gal who likes old movies, old music, screwball comedies and vintage clothes. She has a pretty good sense of humor to boot.

I think that this quote from her says it all:

It`s an addiction. I love clothes. I like to go down Melrose and look in all the windows and I go to different flea markets. I have lots of costumes. You never know when you`re going to have to dress up like a milkmaid from the 1600s.

There is definitely something about her don't you think?
