Photographic proof that Zooey Deschanel was born in the wrong decade

Zooey Deschanel is known for her cute, retro quirky style and comedic chops, and we're always happy to give her approach to fashion a shout-out. As her hit show New Girl returns to FOX this week for its fourth season, we're celebrating some of her most adorable retro fashion moments.

1) Pretty in peplum

Zooey had a Marilyn Monroe moment in a pretty little white dress featuring zipper detail. As usual, she kept things retro with fishnet stockings and her signature swoop bangs.

4) Designing lady

The actress can add fashion designer to her resume now after her collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger. The line featured a range of vintage-inspired pieces like this patterned dress Zooey sported to the launch event.

5) It's all black and white

Zooey has mastered the cute red carpet pose. She shows it off here in a black and white dress featuring an embellished floral print skirt.

In a red-hot midi fit and flare dress and black pumps, Zooey looked like the vintage fashion icon we know her to be. She accessorized with a matching clutch and swept her hair into a side braid to complete the look.

7) Dressed to impress

Did you know Zooey sings too? The She & Him singer hit the 2012 Billboard Music Awards in a stunning bejeweled dress featuring a retro neckline. Of course, she paired it with her favorite black tights.

8) Pink kind of day

We're going way back to 2009 for this look where Zooey looked darling in a pink cap sleeve dress. The all-black accessory palette and Zooey's pretty wavy half updo all came together for one heck of a vintage look.

9) Golden Globes gal

Zooey pulled out all the stops for FOX's post-Golden Globes party this year, arriving in an embellished crop top dress with loads of flirty tulle on the skirt. The fashionista even matched her shoes to the dress, opting for beaded beauties.

10) Stripes say it all

At a New Girl screening, Zooey went a little bit modern, a little bit retro in a black crop top and striped A-line skirt. Black tights and pumps and her go-to curls/bangs combo finished the look.
