Zooey Deschanel, the 'New Girl' who started out as an "it girl," was a vision of scarlet loveliness in a strapless, prom-pretty and tomato red Oscar de la Renta gown at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards.

The actress and singer paired the dress with a simple strand of pearls and her hair pulled off her face, which showed off the gown's sweetheart neckline.

Her whole look was soft and unfussy, and she was a true red carpet winner. Deschanel was easily one of the belles of the Golden Globes ball. It was refreshing that someone so quirky decided to keep it streamlined and classic. The results spoke for themselves.
