It’s hard to argue with the fact that Zooey Deschanel always looks adorable. And if you’ve always wanted to steal her look, now’s your big chance: the “New Girl” actress is taking on a new challenge and is designing a collection of dresses for Tommy Hilfiger!
According to Women’s Wear Daily, Zooey’s designing 16 “flirty dresses” (of course) that will be sold at Macy’s. So why did Zooey and Tommy team up? Other than the fact that Tommy loves her style, he also says they see “eye-to-eye” on a lot of the fashion design decisions they’ve made together so far.
“We always try to ascertain whether or not someone is a ‘Tommy girl,’” Tommy said. “She is the epitome of it — all-American, youthful, fun and funny, yet she has a sophistication and worldliness to her that’s quite endearing. She is easy to get along with and she is quite involved. She really knows what she likes and what she doesn’t like.”
So what can we expect from Zooey’s line? “They are sixties inspired short dresses,” Tommy said. “There is a lot of red, white, and blue, but done in a Zooey way with interesting detail and flirty fabrics … It’s a new way to look at fun American classics.”
Considering the fact that we want to steal everything that’s in Zooey’s closet, this is amazing news. The next best thing to hiring her as our personal stylist — and, consequentially, our BFF — are dresses she designed herself.
“I am a fashion fanatic, and I am always looking for new ways to incorporate vintage, feminine pieces into my own wardrobe,” Zooey said. “Tommy and I share many of the same inspirations — old-school music, classic films and old Hollywood icons — and his guidance during the design process helped put a really unique twist on each piece.”
The dresses range from $98 to $199, and hit Macy’s stores April 14. The line launches online April 21.
