No pantyhose enthusiast website would be complete without an article dedicated to Zooey Deschanel’s pantyhose love affair. The gorgeous Hollywood actress was born in 1980 and is the daughter of Academy Award-nominated cinematographer Caleb Deschanel and Mary Jo Deschanel which starred in Twin Peaks. Zooey has played major roles in some awesome movies like the recent romantic comedy movie (500) Days of Summer in which she co-stars with one of our favorite actors Joseph Gordon-Levitt or Almost Famous, one of our favorite movies of all time about a boy who becomes a groupie for an up-and-coming rock band, which was released in 2000. She also pursues a career in music as a singer in the indie folk band She & Him.
Zooey recently shared on her website Hello Giggles that she is “a year round pantyhose girl” who “will wear pantyhose even if it’s 100 degrees outside”, something that every fan of tights has probably already noticed from her public appearances in which she often wears preppy whimsical looks with black and sometimes colored pantyhose to match. Although she complains on her blog post that pantyhose “do not accommodate skinny-ankled people” like herself we can safely say that, after having carefully examined some of her photos, she doesn’t any reason to concern herself about that since she has perfectly shaped legs and, even if her tights tend to crumble up around the ankles, that’s only going to add another layer of cuteness to her outfits.
Although this may seem like pointless bickering by Miss Deschanel we found out, after reading through some of the comments on her post, that many other readers share the same problem which reader Morgan Smith amusingly described as “chicken legs” syndrome as well as other issues related to the fact that some women are just not tall or small enough to cater the “one-size fits all” standard that so many pantyhose manufacturers have. Even with tights designed for different size patterns this issue may still surface so these are niches that brands should definitely take in mind.
Anyway Zooey if you’re reading this we know it’s part of human nature to always see some flaws when we look in the mirror but trust us, you have nothing to worry about!
Below are some of the best quality photos of Zooey’s outfits featuring pantyhose that we’ve found scattered around the web, feel free to take a look and tell us what you think about them.
Sarah Silverman loves her pantyhose and she loves to strike scandalous poses at the events she’s invited to. She especially loves her faux stocking pantyhose which she has worn in countless occasions like, for example, during her interview on the Letterman’s show which you can check below. We’ve compiled some of her most interesting photos and videos for your viewing pleasure.
For this particular occasion she chose to pair her legwear with a tight short black dress which favors her figure immensely. You can catch a glimpse of the faux stockings detail right after the 5:00 mark.
Isis Tomie is a Brazilian Pantyhose Fashion Blogger whose website features very interesting outfits that include colorful, original pantyhose styles. We had the pleasure of interviewing her and you can check her answers in English and Brazilian below.
Can you introduce yourself and your blog? When did you start it and why?
Hi, I am Isis Tomie, 29 years old. I live in São Paulo, Brazil. I started my blog back in 2014 to talk about themes that interest me, my main focus was always on showcasing original styles of socks and pantyhose but I also like to create articles about beauty and make-up.
If you had to describe your style how would you do it?
I have an alternative minimalist style and I don’t follow trends that much. I like to use darker or monochromatic pieces to highlight my colorful legwear.
Tenho um estilo alternativo minimalista, ou seja, não sigo as tendências. Gosto de mais peças escuras ou monocromáticas, para que as meias e meias-calças fiquem evidentes.
When you’re putting together your outfits where do you normally get your inspiration from?
I like the pin-up, goth and kawaii style a lot. These are my main inspirations but I don’t dress exactly like them.
Gosto bastante do estilo pin-up, góticas e kawaii. São inspirações, mas não me visto exatamente iguais a elas.
Can you name two people who have had the biggest influence on your style?
Do you consider yourself to be a trendsetter?
I think I’m still far away from being able to consider myself a “trendsetter” but maybe one day!
Não, ainda estou longe de ser uma “trendsetter”, mas quem sabe um dia!
Do you receive mails from fans of your blog asking you for style tips? What’s the main advice that you normally give them?
I don’t usually get those kinds of requests. My advice to everyone that says “oh, I don’t know how to wear that” is that they should go ahead and try it anyway without any inhibitions as long as it makes them feel good about themselves.
Não costumo receber esse tipo de pergunta. O conselho que eu digo para todos que falam “não sei usar isso” é para que usem sim, sem medo e use sempre algo que seja bom para si mesmo!
What are some of your favorite hosiery brands and shops?
LegAvenue, Virivee, Zohara Tights and Forever 21.
What was the priciest legwear item you’ve ever bought and how would you review it?
I really can’t say. Most of the pantyhose that I have were bought by my mother when she traveled abroad and given to me as a gift.
Não lembro. A maioria das meias que eu tenho foram oferecidas (minha mãe comprou quando viajou para fora do Brasil)
What was the last pair of pantyhose/leggings you bought and what’s special about them?
The last pantyhose that I bought was a lace pair from HUE. Since the fishnet pantyhose are trendy these days I wanted to try one of those myself since I didn’t have any. Unfortunately I made a mistake and ended up buying these lace pantyhose instead.
Foi uma meia-calça rendada da HUE. Como as meias arrastão estão na moda, queria uma também, pois é uma meia que não tenho. Porém, me enganei e comprei uma meia rendada e não arrastão.
Walk us through your legwear drawer, what are some of your favorite legwear items and why?
Gradient pantyhose, colorful pantyhose and tattooed styles! They are the ones that create the most impact when I use them so they’re my favorites!
Meias degradês, meias coloridas e meias que parecem tatuagem! São as que mais causam impacto quando uso, por isso são as minhas favoritas!
What do you think is going to be the next big trend in the legwear universe?
Velvet textured pantyhose, maybe! 🙂
What is your favorite article on www.legwearfashion.com and why?
I like the article 7 Best Pantyhose Review YouTube Video Channels because it inspires me to create more content for my Youtube channel! In Brazil we still don’t have any specific channels about socks and pantyhose!
Gosto desse artigo pois me inspira a criar mais conteúdo para o youtube! No Brasil, não há canal específico sobre meias e meias-calças!
Thank you very much Isis, we love your style and attitude, keep posting!
Ariana Grande is an American singer and actress that certainly knows how to rock her pantyhose. Pantyhose is omnipresent on her outfits and she has been seen sporting it during casual strolls on the street to grand performances and even Halloween parties. Her great taste in legwear expands to cute over the knee socks as well like the white ones that she uses on the music video for her hit single “Problem” and during some of her stage performances after the video was released.
We’ve selected a photo of Ariana sporting these white knee-high socks for our featured article image in a somewhat of a schoolgirl uniform featuring a checkered black and white skirt that complements the legwear very well.
