Zooey Deschanel Dresses Like a “Hot Farmer’s Daughter” in New Girl

In real life, Zooey Deschanel rarely gets it wrong on the red carpet.

Her character in the upcoming FOX series New Girl, on the other hand, needs a style intervention.

When the 31-year-old actress' just-dumped character Jess preps for a night on the town by donning a pair of overalls, her friend Cece (Hannah Simone) steps in to help her sartorially-challenged pal.

"I was going for like a hot farmer's daughter kind of thing," Deschanel's character explains. "You know like, 'Oh, I'm going to go milk some cows…with my bucket!'"

Cece convinces Jess to try a new look, but is it enough to impress her roommates? Watch the clip (above) to find out and catch New Girl when it premieres Sept. 20 at 9 p.m. EST on FOX.
