There is a letter that is making its internet rounds right now and it was penned by a then 17-year-old Zooey Deschanel. And the recipient? Vogue Magazine. And let’s just say, she doesn’t hold back.
It has been 14 years since this letter was written. Have things changed? I do believe that we have a wider definition of beauty, but are we still in the business of ‘advocating insecurity’? Hopefully NoH is inspirational for readers… if it isn’t, what am I doing here?
I love that Zooey Deschanel wrote this letter. After all, she is the poster child for an un-orthodox beauty. Her eyes are these fantastically huge blue pools, she has these adorable bangs (inspiration for my own hair!) and she has an offbeat fashion sense. Even her acting/ singing career is characterized by the perfectly peculiar (including unconventional indie-films and her quirky musical duo). Did I mention I love her?
