When Zooey Deschanel stepped out at the Vanity Fair Oscars afterparty, all eyes turned to her flawless and fashionable dress, not only a perfect pick for the red carpet but that has the wow factor as a bridal gown.
Branching out from the cool, quirky concoctions she is so famed for, the New Girl actress stunned in a sophisticated Valentino creation with Dana Rebecca diamond jewellery for a look inspired by the designer's bridal haute couture.

Although her sartorial statement was surprisingly out of character, the star looked as stylish as ever in the nude and floral embroidered creation which featured a slim satin belt finished with a delicate bow, high neck and long sleeves.
Zooey kept to her bridal-inspired theme by accessorising with a petal pink clutch and diamond ring. Her new bob completed the look, with the star's natural curls transformed into a sleek, sophisticated chop to match her gown. Keeping the overall look chic, her make-up was both simple and subtle focusing on just a flick of eye liner and a dab of rose-coloured lipgloss.
Valentino's attention to detail and intricate design were well and truly visible in this floor-length gown, reminding us again why the fashion house is almost unparalleled in its bridal design.
Now in the hands of Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, the collection experiments with floral textured patterns, sheer overlays and intricate laces. Models decorated the catwalk at New York Fashion Week in colourful floral headgear with pale pinks and pastel blues forming the perfect shades for spring.
Pretty, delicate and colourful, these details add a touch of difference to a white wedding gown and are ideal for spring weddings - perfect for high-fashion, vintage appeal.
