  • If she’s going to stick with her neo-bobbysoxer look, a pair of cigarette pants would have been KILLER and still in her wheelhouse.

  • Rhonda Shore

    Gosh, the skirt the model’s wearing looks like one of Patricia’s textile designs!!!

  • Rand Ortega

    She is REALLY self conscious about her legs, isn’t she? I like the (go on, use it) quirkiness of the look. It’s all very her, very cute, but the tights just make it too costumy & cliche for me. The shoes should be sportier.

  • Wait, this is Chanel?

  • Introspective

    Of course.

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      She’s Of Course’d her way into the Whiteboard

  • aeb1986

    everytime i see a post about her im HOPING i wont scroll down to see black tights. the most aggravating thing about this look is how amazing that coat would have been with a great pair of pants. she ruined it with everything from the waist down.

  • thecitysleeps

    I adore this. That jacket is to die for, and I love that she went for flats and pantyhose. She’s very relatable in her personal style, I find. That is an outfit I could wear in a heartbeat, if I afforded Chanel that is.

  • Why is she looking so…different these days? I know the bangs are no longer really booms, but that doesn’t tell the whole story for me really.

    • Anne StJean

      Same here! i was just scrolling down and wondering why I don’t really recognize her any more. Maybe it’s the facial expression? Or aging? Her face looks longer to me, somehow.

      • MilaXX

        Makeup and hair is done differently

        • luciaphile

          She’s not putting the makeup on with a trowel. That helps.

    • jamie2348

      I was just going to say the same thing. Something is definitely different, but I can’t figure out what it is. The easiest explanation would I guess be plastic surgery, but, if so, I can’t figure out what she may have had done.

    • Maybe she’s just losing some weight? New makeup team?

      • Eclectic Mayhem

        Yup – I think it’s weight loss too.

        • RedRaven617

          I think it is the make-up. No under liner so she doesn’t have the “doe-eye” look, no dark lips. Plus the bangs are not as heavy. Google her with images and you can see.

    • I think she’s plucking her eyebrows and it’s made a huge difference.

    • StellaZafella

      She’s got Friends Syndrome…she’s slowly turning into Courtney Cox.

      • lamamu

        Noooo!!! That just makes me sad, because it’s most likely so true.

      • makeityourself

        That’s interesting because Courtney Cox is turning into Demi Moore.

    • Sara

      She is not wearing false eyelashes.

      • shirab

        I think that’s the main difference, you’re right.

      • RebeccaKW

        That’s the biggest difference for me. I’m sure she’s wearing falsies, but they are natural and not those extra-long spidery ones she always sports. The hair seems toned down, too. Not just the bangs, but the whole thing seems sleeker.

    • Janet B

      Her face isn’t quite as soft looking.
      (probably a combination of age/weight/breakup)

    • Historiana

      If she is growing out her bangs, I wonder if it will have the same effect on her career as when Felicity cut her hair short. I’m guessing yes as I do think she’s overrated and gets by mainly on retro twee-ness.

    • maretha2

      1. She’s not wearing the false eyelashes
      2. She’s holding her head up straight.

  • I love how a rejected outfit from the Fifth Element is deemed resort wear by Chanel.

  • aeb1986

    side thought- do you think she has an entire closet dedicated to black tights?

  • Anniebet

    Girl, you need some heels with that. Minnie Mouse shoes don’t work.

    • I like that she’s wearing flats but i agree w/the suggestion of cigarette pants instead.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Flat shoes would have been great if they weren’t so cutesie, something a little tougher.

  • Toni Busch

    Swap out the tights and skirt for a great pair of jeans (and even keeping those ballet flats) and this would have been so much more stylish. Or, skinny black pants.

  • I almost didn’t recognize her without the usual Betty Boop levels of eye makeup. Then I saw the pose and the black tights, and remembered who she was.

  • Sobaika

    Right, costumey. I don’t mind her shtick and it suits her but she takes it to the nth degree and it’s too much.

    • SassieCassy

      say it with me: try hard

  • I want those shoes. I don’t care for this poofy-skirt thing, though. Jacket is nice.

  • You know, it’s very Zooey, but I’ll take it. The length of the skirt is flattering, the jacket is interesting, the legs are covered in hose instead of opaque tights and her mascara isn’t clumpy and thick. It’s damn near Zooey Lite.

  • Love the top half.

  • Janet B

    Love the Chanel jacket on her, but the shirt isn’t working well with it.

  • Patricia Gillett

    Tights in May? Why not just wear pants, then? The jacket is cute but the skirt is just too poofy.

  • SewingSiren

    Looks like it could be purchased at Forever 21. But so does the original.

  • Sadie-Ann

    You know, the tights wouldn’t even bother me if they weren’t always black.

  • werika

    Is she naturally this pale or does she seem more Casper-ly here?

  • nannypoo

    I’m getting used to her new face. I like this outfit for her. I even think maybe her tights are less heavy than usual.

  • SassieCassy

    can you believe it

  • shanteUstay

    I can’t with this one, the kooky quirky thing was cute on red carpets and shows for a whole but it would be nice to see she can be grown up and sophisticated

  • AlisonS

    I think I hate the shoes more than the tights. I expect the tights but damn those are some hiddy shoes. Not that the Minnie Mouse shoes she prefers would worked, but those just do no go.

  • Take always those tights, and this is a good look. BTW, do her eyes look different?

  • ThaliaMenninger

    I don’t like the shoes, but the rest of it is ok. And for once, the tights aren’t bugging me. Maybe it’s just by comparison to the Payless shoes.

  • BrooklynBomber

    Almost, girl, almost.

  • RedRaven617

    Of course.

  • Joben

    I think the main difference is that she’s showing her teeth when she smiles. She never used to do that before recently.

  • The bangs. They’re baaack.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    From the waist up, I think she looks fabulous. I hope she bought the jacket, because she should wear it all the time. How cute with jeans, if she wore jeans. Hair is good and more modern than usual, makeup is pretty. Waist down? High school rut.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    My eyes start to twitch when the blacks don’t match. All the pieces are cute but the whole look is too precious for my tastes.

  • E. D.

    That skirt makes her look HUGE. Although the black tights/white shoes do distract from it a little.

  • filmcricket

    I love all of this except the shoes. They are adorable on their own, but white shoes with black hose make my eye twitch. And I think she needed a heel.

  • Maluca

    Of course.


  • MK03

    This looked fantastic…untilI scrolled down and saw the goddamn cupcake skirt and tights and twee shoes. *sigh* I suppose I should be grateful she’s standing up straight and her head isn’t lolling to the side…

  • Ediths_Head

    Jeans, Zooey, jeans also cover one’s legs. And, unlike tights, jeans would be killer with that jacket.

  • kalisa

    I’m sorry, no. HOW is that Zooey Deschanel? I’m a need to see a picture of her next to the Zooey I recognize.

    • Yes. One thing is her eyes seem to have very little makeup, but now they don’t look big and blue. Her eyebrows seem different: oh wait, that cuz I can SEE them now, but also the shape of her face just looks different. I hope someone explains it.

  • kerry noodles

    That is exactly what I thought!!

  • ballerinawithagun

    I know! How can an outrageously expensive jacket look so cheap???

    • formerlyAnon

      Well, the way it photographs as if it could be made of shiny, textured vinyl doesn’t help.

  • mhleta

    The proportions are off. This needed a pencil skirt and heels. At least the tights are a litte sheerer than usual. I feel her pain. I have child knees, too. They’re challenging, but only in a very First World sort of way.

  • I sort of love the jacket, but I’m DONE with the full skirts and tights.

    And… has she had work done? Because she’s been unrecognizable the last couple of times she’s been on the step-and-repeat. At first I thought it was because she didn’t have the bangs at the Met Gala, but even now… this doesn’t really look like her, and I’m trying to figure out why.

    One more thing… thank GAWD she didn’t wear the shoes that the model has on.

  • Qitkat

    I want to see Zooey in a short pink wig. I really really do.

  • PastryGoddess

    It must be summer because Zooey is wearing SHEER black tights instead of opaque ones.

  • RinPauler

    That Resort collection from Chanel was a disgrace.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    It’s not… bad. Love the makeup and hair, and she’s finally not doing that side-glance, kewpie-doll, “I’m so ADORKABLE!” face that someone well into their mid-30s needs to stop doing. Love the jacket.

    The 50s skirt, the black tights, the ballet flats – eh. They’re not awful, per se, and the skirt is less bothersome because at least it’s not one of her usual stupid Minnie Mouse prints. So, from the waist up – wonderful! From the waist down – baby steps.

  • Love you girl, but stop with the black tights already!!!

  • formerlyAnon

    Honest to god, I think she’s trying to grow up!

    Pro tip: Pencil skirt (it doesn’t have to be tight, sweetie, we know you’re trying & I won’t make you wear heels) or, as Coleen said in the very first post, cigarette pants.

    • MilaXX

      yep, it’s not all the wat there yet, but it’s an improvement

  • I have such a crush on her hair.

  • MasterandServant

    It just doesn’t look like her…..lately it looks like her jawline/lips/maybe teeth have been adjusted?

    • I thought it was just me. I’ve been thinking that I wouldn’t know it was her if she wasn’t identified.

  • crash1212

    I could fully support this look if she had done a heel of some sort instead of those dopey flats…even a flat without two tones might’ve been OK. I love what she’s done from the waist up, don’t hate the skirt and refuse to discuss the tights because…well girl’s gotta wear tights so let’s just let her live…the shoes though…killing it, not in a good way. Also – love the split bangs.

  • j_anson

    For brief moment she looked like a real human being, and now she’s back to being an adorable hipster doll.

  • MilaXX

    I love her new makeup. The sheer tight are an improvement over the dark plaques she typically favors.

  • 3boysful

    I think she looks adorable . . . until you scroll down to the black hose. And even those I might could forgive were they not being worn with shoes of a predominately white material! UGH.

  • I can’t help but love her. I do wish she would ditch the tights every now and again, but if they make her feel more comfortable, I can’t really argue with that. As long as she never dies her hair blonde again, she’s good in my book.

  • sagecreek

    At least she’s almost abandoned the oh-so-annoying head cock.

  • Hetha Innis


  • Ugh. Once again, I look at her and all I see is “sexy baby.” Gross.

  • Cz

    From the thumbnail, I saw the patent leather jacket and was all like, “Ooh this is gonna be interesting”. I was hoping for pants, or for boots, or a sexy pencil skirt or for anything.

    Anything except, stockings, ballet flats and that poofy skirt.

    It went from cool, hip Chanel to whatever very quickly.

    • Cz

      Also, it’s sequins and not patent leather. Boo.

  • blueberrypanckae

    Resort collection?? What Resort is that model going to!!

  • This is a hot mess, as to be expected with Zoey. Does no one in her styling camp like her? Cigarette pants would have fixed a bunch…

  • Dude all I could see was her top half and I thought: “If I scroll down and see opaque tights, so help m-….” ENOUGH.

    • Gwyndall

      They’re black, but NOT opaque… 😛

  • Lori

    She makes Chanel twee and ordinary. That’s not a crime, but it probably should be. Her shtick is really starting to wear on my nerves.

  • jetpackdino

    I wish she’d worn this to the Met Gala instead.

    Still bitter, yes. Still bitter.

  • I really don’t like the full skirt. All black makes Zoe a dull girl. The jacket is cute, but she wasted it. And why don’t I recognize her anymore?

    • conniemd

      Yes. Good jacket, wasted with the dull dirndl skirt.

  • Louise Bryan

    How did she change her face?

  • myristica_fragrans

    what happened to her face? did she get work done, or is it just because she got rid of the bangs?

    • Fordzo

      I know! I’m puzzled! Has she lost weight (I don’t think so)? Is it the lack of bangs? I need some before/after pics put right next to each other to compare.

      Nevermind, she still has bangs.

      • myristica_fragrans

        i overlooked the bangs! now i think she got new teeth.

        • Fordzo

          Now I think she HAS lost weight, and it is really showing in her face. I spent way too much time looking at google images of her this morning. I think she did get new teeth, but I think it was a couple of years ago.

        • Fordzo

          Nope, now I think it’s cheek implants or fillers.

  • kimiakay

    It’s been driving me craaaazzzy too. I think, just maybe, it’s her jawline and her chin. I looked at some of her other pictures on this site, and that’s all I can tell. She really is almost unrecognizable to me. But as to her outfit, I like the top. But I have to wonder what would happen if she were to wear a pencil skirt instead. And ditch the tights/hose.

  • macwell

    I am pretty tired of this chick and her ‘quirky’ (?) ‘style’, smile and pretty much everything else. it’s been done before – and better. Time to ‘reinvent’ some other square wheel hon.

  • quiltrx

    I’m good from the knees up…but black hose with houseshoes will never be right.

  • I thought EXACTLY the same thing. What a damn waste.

  • lizajane1776

    For me, the bad part of this outfit isn’t the tights (she went a bit sheer, it IS approaching summer, you know) but the white shoes. Black shoes would have been just fine.

  • MartyBellerMask

    And for a refreshing change of pace, Miss Zooey has replaced her black tights with black pantyhose. Nice to see her branching out.

  • guest2visits

    I like any pics where Zooey gives her bangs a rest. This is nice with them swept off-sides, a little.
    Nice look until the hem; a short and poofy skirt needed a higher heel, and certainly not those shoes.
    Super sheer hose would have been much better.

  • Rrroza

    So happy she’s not doing the confused-puppy head tilt. But nnnoooo to the tights and shoes!

  • Bitch your wearing a great Chanel jacket, you wear it properly with pants and heels, if it wasn’t sequined then you could have gotten away with flats

  • librarygrrl64

    Really nice — from the waist up.

  • akprincess72

    She’s misusing the jacket, I should get it!!
