If there’s one thing that actress Zooey Deschanel decidedly is, it’s adorable. Add that with the fact that she is quirky — which means that sometimes she trips or says awkward things in social settings — and you’re reminded of the fact that she’s a DORK, too! She’s such a dork. Such a traditionally pretty, thin, white, highly marketable dork.

And nothing proves how outside of the mainstream she is more than this cover shoot she did for the May issue of a little-known glossy women’s magazine called Marie Claire. Here’s what big dorky dork Zooey was probably thinking during this shoot.
