Zooey Deschanel ''sparkles'' in whatever she wears.

Costume designer Debra McGuire loves working with the actress on TV show 'New Girl' because she suits everything, and particularly enjoys picking out a wide spectrum of colours for her character Jess.

Debra said: ''Everything is so darn cute on her. The Hair, the face, the eyes ... every time she puts something on it just sparkles.

''[I wanted to] do something that we hadn't seen on TV before,'' she says. ''I thought the best thing for Jess was to do primary colors - there's something about those that I thought really worked for the character. So she's sort of a mix of Crayola crayons.''

Debra admits one of her favourite things about working on the show is she doesn't have to ''play it safe'' with the outfits she creates for Zooey's Alter Ego.

She told People magazine: ''They're all in primary colours, so I mix and match those with her outfits. I'll pair a purple dress and green shoes, for Example. We're not playing it safe with colour.''

And Zooey enjoys her fun outfits just as much as the costumer does.

Debra added: ''We're pretty much on the same wavelength. I haven't had a situation where she didn't want to wear something, or didn't like something. I don't put her in anything that's not a favourite.''
