Feed Zooey cake, stat!

So, I have been spending a lot of time recently re-watching 'New Girl' episodes. This has had the following effects:

1) I have developed a serious girl-crush on Zooey Deschanel. I mean, lets face it, she is gorgeous, funny, has the best hair I have ever seen, she's in 'Elf' which is basically the best Christmas film ever made, and if you didn't actually think she could get any cooler, she sings in a band. And they're good. I think it's true love, folks.

2) I have developed a serious wardrobe-crush on Zooey Deschanel. To the point that I have spent hours trawling Ebay for high-waisted skirts, shorts and pussy-bow tops. I think the picture above illustrates my point: the artful print-mixing, the tiny cinched-in waist, classic red/white/blue colour palette, a good polka dot is always a winner, and those gloves... Wow. 10/10 for originality, overall presentation and blow-dry skillz. She looks gorgeous, I love it. I love her. Zooey, if you're out there reading this one day, I love you and I truly believe we could be best friends. How about it...?

The thing is, on my Zooey-search via google images, I came across this picture which disturbed me greatly... Take a look:

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Zooey appears to be slightly less of a woman in this picture. A good stone-and-a-half less. I mean, don't get me wrong, she is still gorgeous. And her outfit is very cute. But... Am I alone in thinking that Ms Deschanel looked about 100 degrees hotter in the previous image? And not just because Zooey's silhouette in the previous image is a semi-attainable one for us mere mortals; I actually, genuinely believe she looks better with a bit more meat on her. Which is a big statement from a past eating-disorder-sufferer (that's me, guys) to make! If she and I were best friends in actuality I would promptly feed her cupcakes...

I would welcome others' thoughts and comments on this? I don't know what the chronology of these images is, but I hope the next time I see Zooey on screen she's looking more like this...

Gorgeous! What do you all think?

Much love, Kate Xx


  1. Generally I don't buy into the whole 'she looks better fatter' (for want of a better word). It always seemed to me that people said it because they were jealous that someone had lost weight...

    But, yes, she does look better in the first picture. I think that's down to the clothes and also the fact that her legs look powerful!

  2. I would always have agreed with you, Jet, which is why this is a big and weird step for me to think someone actually looks better heavier! You could be right about the clothes being part of it, I think Zooey just looks too fragile and insipid in the second pic. Which is what I found unsettling!
    Thankyou for your comments Xx
