ZOOEY AND TOMMY: Zooey Deschanel joined Tommy Hilfiger at The London hotel in West Hollywood Tuesday night to celebrate the launch of the To Tommy, From Zooey capsule collection, a 16-piece dress and accessory range on sale today at, and in select stores next week. Retail prices range from $98 to $199. “Zooey has an authentic personal style and energetic spirit that embodies the very best of all-American fashion. She reminds me of a modern day Audrey Hepburn or Jackie O.,” said the designer. Deschanel said she was lucky to have Hilfiger as a mentor as well as “all [the design team’s] creativity and talent at my fingertips.” The actress, who sewed many of her own clothes in high school, said, “It was cool to have the opportunity to make clothes that are exactly what I want to wear.” She used vintage dresses from the Sixties and Seventies as her inspiration.

“The synergy between Zooey’s personal style and the brand’s DNA comes through strongly. We both love American fashion, old Hollywood glamour and giving a modern twist to classic pieces,” Hilfiger said.
