New Girl Is Back On TV! Let's Celebrate With Zooey Deschanel's Finest Video Moments

10 July 2012 by

She’s friends with Alexa Chung and Lana Del Rey, officially brought back the thick, blunt fringe and she’s funny – have you checked her Twitter lately? That’s right, after a long few months of being Schmidt-less, New Girl is BACK tonight with not one, but two whole episodes. Cancel your plans because your latest TV girl crush, 32-year-old, Zooey Deschanel is finally back on our screens.

That’s more  Ross-And-Rachel type tension between Nick and Jess, Schmidt (and his abs) and more of that saccharine-sweet girly humour. In honour of New Girl’s return, Grazia HQ look at just why we’ve loved Zooey Deschanel ever since she first appeared on our screens as Will Ferrell’s (blonde!) love interest, Jovie, in 2003’s ‘Elf’. She broke Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s heart in 2009’s ‘500 Days Of Summer’, became the soundtrack of our Christmas with her band’s ‘A Very She & Him Christmas’ album and is our Instagram-addiction with all her behind-the-scenes photos with A-list BFFs. Basically, she's adorkable.

Watch some of our favourite Zooey (pronounced Zoe) moments below from her singing in the shower scene in Elf, to her all-singing-all-dancing music video for her band and those adorable videos she made with '500 Days Of Summer' co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Not forgetting, of course, the first time we ever saw her as Jess in New Girl.
