New Girl actor Zooey Deschanel wears a saree in season 2 finale episode

The main lead of the sitcom, whose character is called Jess, was seen going all Indian on screen

Western sitcoms seem to be smitten by the traditional Indian style as well – the mere evidence being Zooey Deschanel’s desi avatar on New Girl. Zooey, who is known for her funny antics in the comedy serial, was seen wearing a pretty blue saree with a shiny pink hem. While she looked quite simple, the supporting character Cece who’s getting married opted for a bright lehenga choli. Although Cece’s statement was a tad too loud, Jess impressed us with that subtle choice.

Popular singer Taylor Swift also made an appearance in the finale. It was a special wedding sequence and all the actors were seen celebrating it in absolute Indian style.

We wonder who inspired Jess to wear a saree. Is it Aishwarya Rai Bachchan who makes it a point to wear ethnic ensembles quite often at international events or our very own Vidya Balan who has made wearing saree a cool trend in B-town? What do you think readers?
