Queen of the Day

Happy Birthday, Zooey!

We would like to wish our co-founder, style hero, musical crackerjack and comedic inspiration, Miss Zooey Deschanel, a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY! The birthday girl has dazzled us in many ways, one of which being her candor. Zooey isn’t afraid to share her thoughts and opinions, and we adore her for that.

On this very special day, we’d like to share some of the best quotes from our fearless leader.

“I’m just being myself. There is not an ounce of me that believes any of that crap that they say. We can’t be feminine and be feminists and be successful? I want to be a f–king feminist and wear a f–king Peter Pan collar. So f–king what?”February Issue of Glamour Magazine

“I had a party at the American Girl store — recently.”Us Weekly

“People do think I’m weird. I don’t know why.”May 2012 issue of Marie Claire

“I don’t know why femininity should be associated with weakness. Women should be free to express who they are without thinking, I need to act like a man, or I need to tone it down to be successful. That’s a very good way to keep women down.”February 2012 Issue of Allure

“Somebody asked me, “How did you start doing comedy?” and I was like, “By being unintentionally funny.” I think making a movie or a record, the best things happen by accident—and those end up being the magic. Every time I’ve followed my gut it’s been better than when I’ve tried to do what I was supposed to do.” –February Issue of Glamour Magazine

“I hate papaya. I love coffee. I mean, I really love coffee.”Us Weekly

We love you, Zooey!

    Happy Birthday Zooey! You ARE my style hero + inspiration. You made me realise to be true to myself and not care about non-sense talk that people may spread about me. You made me improved on my self esteem, which I had very little of before until last year, by showing your fearlessness and honest opinions. May you have a beautiful, blessed and, of course, fun birthday today! Thank You!

    Such a refreshingly wise woman. I’m so glad she exists and is upheld as an inspiration just for being herself–funny, unique, vulnerable and real. That is what makes her so beautiful. And that last quote might replace the Marianne Williamson “you come from the stars” as my all-time fave. It’s perfect.

    correction: “you come from the stars” was Oprah’s interpretation of the M. Williamson quote. Just realized that after all these years! hm. I was referring to M. Williamson’s “Our deepest fear…” quote.
