One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
File this one under: Things that should've happened a long time ago!
You may recall Zooey wore a Tommy Hilfiger seersucker dress to the Met Gala last year, and the two have actually known each other for a while when they met at a friend's house.
Tommy recalled the meeting:
“She was wearing this vintage jumpsuit. I complimented her on it, and she told me how she loved vintage. Somehow, the conversation went from loving vintage to possibly doing a capsule collection with her.”
The capsule collection includes 16 dresses that reflect Zooey's signature femme style.
“They are Sixties-inspired short dresses. There is a lot of red, white and blue, but done in a Zooey way with interesting detail and flirty fabrics. They are very Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy — really from the Sixties in London. That’s not something we would normally put in our regular sportswear line — maybe we’d be inspired by the Sixties for the runway, but it’s a new way to look at fun, American classics.”
Zooey herself calls the look "modical," a combination of mod and nautical. She said:
“I am a fashion fanatic, and I am always looking for new ways to incorporate vintage, feminine pieces into my own wardrobe. 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 to put a really unique twist on each piece.”
Well, we already like the few designs we've seen, and we're sure the rest are just as adorkable! Ha!
The dresses will range in price between $98 and $199, and 14 of the 16 styles will be available at Macy’s stores in April.
Plenty of time to save up for them!
