The New Girl star has created a range of 16 dresses, which will arrive on Tommy.com on April 21.
Hilfiger met the actress through a mutual friend, and they began plotting a possible collaboration straight away, fuelled by their mutual love of vintage fashion.
Deschanel told WWD: “I am a fashion fanatic, and I am always looking for new ways to incorporate vintage, feminine pieces into my own wardrobe.
“Tommy and I share many of the same inspirations – old-school music, classic films and old Hollywood icons – and his guidance during the design process helped to put a really unique twist on each piece.”
Hilfiger said of the collection: “They are Sixties-inspired short dresses. There is a lot of red, white and blue, but done in a Zooey way with interesting detail and flirty fabrics. They are very Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy – really from the Sixties in London.
“That’s not something we would normally put in our regular sportswear line – maybe we’d be inspired by the Sixties for the runway, but it’s a new way to look at fun, American classics.”
Prices for the dresses, which are each named after one of Deschanel’s friends, will retail between $98 and $199.
The New Girl star, who graced the red carpet in a black Dolce & Gabbana dress with white polka dots, told The Hollywood Reporter which show originally inspired her to make the move from film to series work.
“Watching 30 Rock was what made me want to get into TV, because I watched that show and I thought, ‘God, that actually looks like fun,’ ” said Deschanel. “I watched that show and I just thought how great TV comedy could be at its apex. Now there are so many great shows, it’s amazing.”
Fellow cover girl Mindy Kaling, keeping with the night’s trend of wearing black, arrived in a Badgley Mischka dress and dished on some of the actresses she admires. “Julia Louis-Dreyfuss andLupita Nyong’o are sort of my two favorite people right now,” Kaling told THR. “Julia is so funny and so smart. Her acceptance speeches are the best. And Lupita, we’re both technically actresses, but what she does is so far away from anything I could ever do. I just admire it so much. She’s so beautiful and fashionable, so I find that very fun to watch.”
