Celebrity Style on Trial: Zooey Deschanel gets ruffled at Our Idiot Brother premiere

Our Idiot Fashion

Remember the time Emma Stone wore an “organs on the outside” skirt? That was the day we learned the word “panniculus”, courtesy of reader Heidi. According to Wikipedia, a panniculus is “a dense layer of fatty tissue growth, consisting of subcutaneous fat in the lower abdominal area”. It’s what we would normally call a FUPA. And it’s apparently the very height of fashion, for now here’s Zooey Deschanel, everyone’s girl’s crush, can do no wrong, wearing an abdomen-enhancing outfit to the premiere of Our Idiot Brotherthis week.

Is that a panniculus in your pocket, or are you just pleased to see us?

We don’t hate it. Not even with the frilly, pierrot-style collar, although Pierrot + Panniculus is an unusual combination, granted. It doesn’t matter what we think, though, because YOU are the Fashion Police jury, so it’s over to you to decide:

Is Zooey guilty or innocent of the charge of committing crimes of fashion?

      I was being sarcastic 🙂 I don’t have a girl crush on her either, it was a reference to the way people seem to gush over her!

        Yeah, I don’t get why either. One day I woke up and everyone loved her.

    I like it too and she looks kinda better than usual (she does tend to wear weird looking outfits..). also dont have a girl chrush but I do like her as an actress and she seems like she is a nice person, though obviously, don’t know that..

    What bothers me most about this look is her hair – wavy, swept to the side – a bit too much considering the oversized frilly collar and the rufffle detail at her waist.

    I may be slightly biased because I love everything about Zooey Deschanel, but I like this outfit. I think it fits her personality well.
