A click on the “Zooey Deschanel” tag indicates that we’ve been somewhat stingy in handing out compliments to Miss Zooey. Well here’s one: we like what she’s handing out in this editorial. We’re digging the ’70s rocker chick/glamorous groupie vibe in the first two pics, but we have to admit, she’s serving it up in that floral Valentino in the third picture. Yes, it’s twee, but she’s pretty much the Queen of Twee.
Zooey Deschanel covers the September 2013 issue of Marie Claire magazine photographed by Tesh.
Is having children on her priority list?: “I’m not going to answer that question. I’m not mad at you for asking that question, but I’ve said it before: I don’t think people ask men those questions.”
What she has learned from being married and divorced: “I will say this: Whether you’re married or not, if you’re in a relationship, you have to wake up every day and say, ‘I want to stay with this person.’ You have to make the commitment every day and every second and every minute.’”
On her speech patterns: “I became aware that people were criticizing the way I speak, which seems weird to me. I speak the way I speak, and I am an intelligent person. Sometimes I lean into California-speak more for entertainment value. It’s not that I can’t live in a world without the word like.”
