America's most adorkable actress has some adorable baby news to share. New Girl's Zooey Deschanel is pregnant with producer Jacob Pechenik, so prepare yourself for the most twee infant ever. Aside from the coos of excitement and joy ricocheting about the globe, the bulletin also gives rise to a significant question: How will Deschanel dress her tot?
Deschanel's singular style is nearly as illustrious as the star herself. Though the actress sports Oscar de la Renta and Andrew Gn on the red carpet, the actress always appears to have walked straight out of another era. Deschanel's silken J. Mendel column at the 2013 Emmys may as well have been stolen out of Jacqueline Kennedy's '60s archives; her ethereal, 2014 Oscar de la Renta Golden Globes ensemble was sheer '50s formal attire; and her striped Dolce & Gabbana skirt for a 2013 screening of New Girl looked like it belonged in '70s-era People's Park in Berkeley.
Of course, one can't discuss Deschanel's style without referencing her capsule line for Tommy Hilfiger, "To Tommy, From Zooey". Nautical, preppy, and deliciously mod, the collection united Deschanel's innate girl next door style with the eccentric accents that make her looks unforgettable.
But what does all of this sartorial idiosyncrasy mean for Deschanel's newest addition? Though common sense dictates that Deschanel will outfit her child as he or she sees fit based on the actress's own love of nonconformity, the Deschanel has at least two years of sartorial joy to look forward to. My odds are on a newborn wardrobe brimming with Tommy Hilfiger, Oscar de la Renta, and vintage infant attire the likes of which might be found on Etsy. Prints and patterns will likely play an essential role in the early months of Deschanel's child, including the actress's beloved polka dots and stripes. Deschanel herself loves a good romper, and what is an infant's closet without a selection of onesies?
Though Los Angeles winters are akin to a mild summer's day, Deschanel is rarely without a colorful coat or vibrant sweater during the chilly months, a proclivity she'll no doubt pass along to her offspring. Whether toggled or in trench form, expect an exceptionally well-bundled baby on Deschanel's arm. As for footwear, Deschanel has the sector covered with her favored ballet flats and slippers, both luckily baby-approved styles.
As for outré extras, the singer is rarely without a fetching bow adorning her curled locks or a headband pulling unruly strands off her face, suggesting that a little girl would be be-ribboned within an inch of her life. Luckily, Deschanel doesn't prefer bells and whistles in the way of jewelry for most public outings, so don't expect a blinged-out baby.
If nothing else, Deschanel's child has several years of opaque tights and full skirts in its adorkable future.
