Girlcrush: Zooey Deschanel!

I read today that my all-time girlcrush and hairspiration, Zooey Deschanel, is going to be the new face of Rimmel (along with some other people that I don't really care about).

I ♥ Zooey. Not only is she enviably stunning, with awesome hair and great dress sense, she also seems to select her projects really well - okay, let's ignore The Happening and Failure to Launch there. 500 Days of Summer was adorbs, though! Plus, she's married to someone from the awesome Death Cab for Cutie AND released the fantastic Volume One as She & Him. She's also pretty much the sole reason why I got a fringe. GIRL. CRUSH.

If you haven't checked out She & Him by now, you really should.

I can't wait to see her work with Rimmel. I generally really like their ads (except their Lily Cole ones, which is bizarre as I LOVE her, but they just seemed to style her really strangely. And ugh, she looked WRONG in the fake tan shots. No. Redheads = pale.) and they seem to choose their models quite carefully. Zooey seems to have fun with makeup, so I think she'll be a great choice. Plus, girlcrush.

Also, this will hopefully raise her profile in the UK, which can't be a bad thing, as LOOK magazine have, at least twice, featured pictures of her with the caption 'Katy Perry'. Boo.
Don't even look same!


  1. Ah she's fab isn't she? I loved 500 Days of Summer so much.

  2. Me too! I don't think I know anyone who doesn't love Zooey. :)

  3. People don't know her in the UK? She's EVERYWHERE here, not that I'm complaining because she's so adorbs and quirky. I love She & Him! And Elf, among other projects she's done. Have you seen the Sci-Fi Network futuristic Wizard of Oz reimagining where she stars as Dorothy (or D.G.)? It's called The Tinman and I own it because I'm a nerd.

  4. I've seen Tin Man! I didn't love it that much actually - it was so long! But I have a friend who is madly obsessed with it.

    People do know her here, but she's not that huge. If you're into films, you'd know her, but I can think of a lot of my friends who wouldn't know her name. And I keep seeing magazines calling her Katy Perry which drives me crazy. She's so much prettier! And her hair is better.

  5. I adore that second photo! Thanks for stopping by my blog...I am so glad I found yours , it is really lovely !

  6. I adore Zooey!
    Can't wait to see the Rimmel ads!
