Fashion Flashback: Zooey Deschanel Then & Now


Zooey Deschanel (Getty, Bauer Griffin)Zooey Deschanel is lauded for her distinct retro style, but crafting that signature look took some trial and error.

Sure, her commitment to stripes, bows, tights, and girly frocks hasn't faltered, but the new Zooey has a special brand of sparkle. See what we mean with these fascinating now and then comparisons—you won't be able to look away.
