The Alternate Zooey Deschanel Elle Cover

14 Jan

The Women in TV issue of Elle hits newsstands today and last week we grumbled about the four different covers; from composition to the styling choices. One complaint leveled at the Zooey Deschanel cover was that they stuck with the super twee image of the New Girl star rather than using this opportunity as Marie Claire had done to show a different side of Deschanel.

It turns out that Deschanel alone gets an alternate cover (most likely the subscriber issue, though the iPad version has the benefit of featuring all the cover shots) and it’s everything the first cover isn’t. Plus it isn’t awkwardly cropped and her hair isn’t threatening to take over her whole face.

Deschanel tends to stick to ’50s and ’60s silhouettes (as seen on the other cover) and yet I actually think there’s a whole lot about the decade of glam rock that suits her. This dress is still incredibly feminine and sparkly, it’s also pretty alluring.
