We admit, in a naked attempt to generate comments, that we just don’t get Zooey’s appeal. We’ve tried to, but every time we assess her talents and charms, we find the praise to be overstated. Sure, she’s quirky and cute and she’s got her own personal style, but the way some people talk about her you’d think she was some sort of incredibly gifted comedian and actress and we’ve never really seen it. We keep trying to watch her much-lauded show and can’t sit through more than ten minutes of it. She’s just not for us, it seems.
Having said all that…

She’s pretty adorable in these pictures for Allure.

“I don’t know why femininity should be associated with weakness. Women should be free to express who they are without thinking, I need to act like a man, or I need to tone it down to be successful. That’s a very good way to keep women down.”

“Because I have brown hair and a low voice, I would get cast as dry, sarcastic, ironic people, which I can do, but it’s not my sense of humor. I’m a very positive person. I get excited easily, and I like to jump around.”
We think the temptation to put her in ’60s-inspired retro must be too great to resist. But even though this is well-trod ground, she looks fresh and adorable. She’s exactly the gal to make these looks still work.
