Zooey Deschanel: In a ‘Tights’ Spot

Zooey Deschanel is known for her sweet style, indie hits and soothing voice. But lately, she’s become known for something else, too: wearing dark tights in summer. It seems the actress, next seen in the sitcom The New Girl, just can’t shake the look — and she knows it. “I am a year round tights girl,” she recently wrote on her blog, HelloGiggles.com. “I will wear tights even if it’s 100 degrees outside. Tights are my safety blanket. In them, I know that I can do a sweet row of cartwheels anytime, anywhere without anyone catching a glimpse of my knickers.” However, something changed this weekend. On Saturday, Deschanel joined Hollywood’s A-list — plus the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge — at the BAFTA Brits to Watch gala in L.A., going barelegged underneath her tea-length Oscar de la Renta gown. Then Sunday, she surfaced at the Winnie the Pooh premiere in Los Angeles, again going tights-less under her cute Kate Spade ensemble. We love the actress’s charming style, but the tights thing has us torn.
