Zooey Deschanel sticks to what works for her: dresses with fitted bodice and full skirt. For the 2012 Teen Choice Awards, Zooey chose a dress with this kind of silhouette, by Monique Lhuillier. The dress was in a solid blue color that really made the actress’ skin glow.

The dress does not seem to be available online but a similar dress from the same designer is available in Bergdorf Goodman.
The taffeta dress has a scoop neckline and fitted bodice making it very flattering. Because of the shape of the sleeves, you’re going to need toned arms to rock this dress. It comes in a deep color but it also has a slight sheen making it perfect for dressy events. Made in the USA, the dress is $ 2, 490.
We decided to look for alternatives that won’t break the bank. Below are two beautiful dresses from Shopbop.
The first one is by Nanette Lepore. It is called the Picture Day dress. Right now it is on sale so you can get it for just $199. The dress has pleating on the skirt.
This Tibi Ponte Crew Neck dress is also on sale. It has piped seams at the bodice and arm openings. The belt does not come with the dress. This dress is now only $ 119.40.
