A perfectly blow-dried mane of sleek brunette hair, a slick of black liquid liner and a cobalt blue Monique Lhullier shift dress. You’d be forgiven for not recognising the star of New Girl, Zooey Deschanel, at the Teen Choice Awards on Sunday evening. Or for thinking that she looks a lot like someone else we know. Yep, you guessed it: Kate Middleton.
Gone were the loose waves of earlier this year, the blunt fringe and the super long eyelashes. In their place Zooey sported a softer, more polished look for the red carpet – wraparound eyeliner, piecey bangs and the faintest sign of a well-sculpted Scouse brow. All very Duchess of Cambridge, non?
Deschanel even seems to have adopted Kate’s fashion sense for the awards ceremony on Sunday, pairing her waist-cinching shift dress with an uber demure Jimmy Choo box clutch and classic black kitten heels. There wasn’t a black opaque tight in sight!
But what do you think of Zooey’s glossy new look, seen again at the Fox All Stars party where she wore a gold shift and heels last night? Is Zooey channelling our very own DoC? Take a look through our gallery above and make up your mind. Grazia Daily loves a good style influence, and we can’t help but expect nude court shoes next…
