Zooey Deschanel Impresses Us With Her Clothing, Charity Budgets

Poor Zooey Deschanel: A) Divorce sucks, duh. B) Having your financial details splashed across the Internet because you’re getting a divorce sucks harder. BUT, if there’s anyone who shouldn’t feel too bad about what’s in said financial details, it’s the New Girl star.

In the documents TMZ posted yesterday from Deschanel’s paperwork filing for divorce from Ben Gibbard, there’s an itemized list of the actress/singer’s monthly income ($95,000!) and expenses ($22,550) that makes us feel both ickily voyeuristic and proud of her. Look, the girl is a freaking style icon and yet she only spends $2,000 a month on clothing? Even given that celebrities get a whole lot of their clothing for free, we know how much they could be spending. Case in point, Zooey’s Erin Fetherston dress above, worn at the finale of the X Factor last month, retails for $425. For a little perspective, Nicole Scherzinger’s beaded Pamella Roland gown from the same event is going for $2,425 at Neiman Marcus right now (marked down from $6,930). And Zooey’s taste in vintage probably saves her plenty of cash too.
