Zooey Deschanel's red carpet style at the 2012 Golden Globes on Sunday was one of the most-talked about on Monday morning.
Deschanel, star of FOX's New Girl and up for the award for Best Actress in a TV Series, Comedy, looked ravishing in couture Prada. Her gown featured a glittering lime-colored bodice and long flowing back skirt.
The brunette beauty donned her hair in a sexy 60s-chic coif with blunt bangs and chopped sideburns. She lined the inner-rims of her bright blue eyes with white eyeliner; this made the blue really pop.
All of that sounds extra-glamorous but who would Deschanel be without adding a quirky flair? The actress flaunted nails complete with little black and white tuxedos. It was a fun, unpredictable addition to an otherwise red carpet-ready ensemble.
Despite how many fans she has today, Zooey Deschanel insists that it was not always lollipops and roses.
Girls spit in my face, Deschanel told Allure magazine for the February issue. People were so mean to me. I'd cry every day.
Unfortunately, things did not change in college. I went to Northwestern because I had gone to a really nontraditional high school. I was like, 'It'd be cool to have a traditional college experience,' Deschanel, 32, explained. Then I was like, 'Oh, but none of these people understand what's cool about me. My specialness is not appreciated in this place.'
I've always straddled a weird line -- there's a lot of mainstream stuff that I love, she added. At the same, I still feel like an outsider. I'm the outsider who's on the inside.
We think that this starlet is nothing short of fabulous. Here is how you can get her adorable tuxedo nails, via nail design blogger Lisa from Nail Art 101.
How-To: Tuxedo Nails
1. Start with a dry white base. Lisa, of Nail Art 101, suggests using Sally Hansen's Insta Dri in Whirlwhind White ($3.99).
2. Paint two fat V-shapes at the base of the nail (which will be the large parts of the bow) with black polish. Lisa suggests using Beauty UK Nail Varnish in Black (£2.49).
3. Round off the V's to create a bow shape and connect the two with a dot. Make three to four more dots down the center, depending on how long your nails are.
4. Paint a thin black tip.
5. Finish with a top coat.
*If you are artistically challenged, use Sally Hansen's Nail Art Pen in black ($7.49) for the tuxedo detailing.
