Being the daughter of a cinematographer and actress, it was probably always a given that Zooey Deschanel would enter show business – but who knew she would become one of the biggest actresses of her generation? From small but memorable roles in films like Almost Famous to comedic turns in Elf, Yes Man and the hit romantic musical-drama 500 Days of Summer, Deschanel has shown industry savvy in her acting roles – but also managed to establish herself as a fashion icon.
With indie fashion blogs hanging on her every style move, Deschanel played it safe and elegant for the 2012 Critics' Choice Television Awards at the Beverly Hills Hilton. In a red dress with flowered frills and black heels, Deschanel struck a fashionable figure that was all brought together by a striking gold pendant necklace. She made an impression on more than just the red carpet photographers however, as Deschanel went on to tie for the win in the category of Best Actress in a Comedy Series.
If you're a fan of Deschanel for her now award-winning role in the hit sitcom New Girl, or just a devotee of unique and trendy fashion, you should seek out estate and vintage jewelry.
