From princess frocks to Old Hollywood beauty to a consistently on-point nail art game, Zooey Deschanel KNOWS what works for her. The actress just gets it, and she’s repping her signature girly sensibility on the cover of the annual April “Color” issue of InStyle, looking radiant in a bright red dress embellished with a giant back bow. Paired with almost no jewelry (save for a couple of rings) and a fresh-faced makeup look that causes her blue eyes practically pop right off the page, this gorgeous photo is a lesson in effortless glam that we can ALL use. But her cover look isn’t the only thing we learned from the issue, which hits newsstands Friday. Inside, the actress dished on her personal style philosophy, stating that “Style isn’t when you buy yourself the most expensive things. It’s being creative and able to put together what you’ve collected.” Well said, Zooey. Noted!

Zooey also chats about the people who take her fashion choices TOO seriously, joking that one day she’s going to surprise everyone with an unexpected outfit curveball. “People are more affected by how I look and dress myself than I think anyone would care to admit. I guess I’ll just have to start wearing power suits.” She might be kidding here, but considering this is a girl who, although knows her look, isn’t afraid to try new things, we have NO doubt that she’d make even a pantsuit seem fresh (hey, just look at Solange!). Get way more Zooey when InStyle’s April issue comes out March 15, and check out a sneak peek here!
