Zooey Deschanel - Zooey Deschanel ditches Daisy Dukes
Zooey Deschanel feels that at 34 she is too old to wear tight cutoff jean shorts.
Zooey Deschanel is too old to wear Daisy Dukes.
The 34-year-old actress shuns tight cutoff jean shorts - named after the 'Dukes of Hazzard' character who popularised the look - because she believes they don't look graceful at her age.
She told Lucky magazine: ''Daisy Dukes are not for people over 30. I'm just going to go out on a limb and say that right now.''
The 'New Girl' star is famed for sporting vintage wear, but protests there's nothing wrong with having a particular style and sticking with it.
She added: ''The funny thing is, people think I never break out of this one box. I like what I like.
''It has nothing to do with trends or being a slave to fashion. Sometimes things will be in style and they're classic and look great, and sometimes ... I think it's important to recognise when fashion has gone to a place that isn't cute.''
Justifying her view, she added some of the most iconic beauties in modern history also have a certain style which they stuck to.
She said: ''If you look at anyone with great style - Jackie Onassis, Audrey Hepburn - they have certain silhouettes that they don't really stray from.
''It's not like Audrey Hepburn was running around in a bunch of giant shoulder-padded-dresses. I have narrow shoulders and a small rib cage, so some things just swallow me up and make me look frumpy.''
