If there's one thing we can always celebrate about (not to mention, attribute to) Zooey Deschanel, it's her commitment to a great retro dress shape. And today, we're celebrating with a look back at her best fit and flare moments in honor of the New Girl actress's 33rd birthday! While she may be the queen of quirk on TV, she has also simultaneously managed to cultivate her own signature brand of style, distinctly defined by nostalgia, throwback silhouettes, and Old Hollywood glamour. For the more formal red-carpet festivities, Zooey's been known to wear voluminous princess-worthy gowns from the likes of Reem Acra and Oscar de la Renta, but for most other occasions, she remains the reigning master of the fit and flare dress. We've seen her don countless iterations — from an edgier Carven cutout dress to a sweeter floral-printed Naeem Khan version — so she has accrued quite the retro-inspired lineup. See how she's nailed the look in our gallery, and here's to more in the year to come. Happy birthday, Zooey Deschanel!
