Cute but no cigar!
Zooey Deschanel was thisclose to getting it right on the red carpet at PaleyFest on Monday night, but poorly chosen accessories got the best of her.
The New Girl's striped Kate Spade dress with pleated skirt, keyhole cut-out at bust, and bow accent couldn't have been more girly and fun, but pairing it with black opaque tights just didn't make any sense — even if they are her signature slash safety blanket!
Imagine if she'd gone bare-legged (or even pulled on some nude hose) and worn red peep-toe pumps. Wouldn't that have been so much better???
That's a rhetorical question, but the answer is still yes.
And though her hair was a bit messy, her face was as pretty as ever, so we'll call it a wash.
