Lately, Deutch—who stars within the upcoming vacation romantic comedy One thing From Tiffany’s—doesn’t need to hit the storage sale circuit to search out her dream bag.

Titled “Really feel the Surprise” and shot by photographer Anton Gottlob, the cheerful advertisements characteristic appears from artistic director Stuart Vevers’ winter 2022 assortment, alongside piles of presents and festive decor.

Beneath, the actress discusses her teenage fashion and why she’s confused by all of the Tweets about her and Glen Powell singlehandedly reviving the rom-com style.
It looks as if you’ve a protracted historical past with Coach.
I’ve worn Coach for a few years—since I began working once I was 15, truly. One in all my first pink carpets, I wore a Coach costume. I really like how a lot Stuart Vevers incorporates and honors the historical past of the model. A pair years in the past, I requested if I may go see the archives. Some manufacturers don’t have an intensive or organized archive for numerous causes: it’s a tough factor to keep up all through completely different management. However because the Forties, Coach is without doubt one of the few manufacturers, at the very least that I do know of, which has a extremely intensive, lovely archive. I received to go down and take a look at it with him—it was actually cool and thrilling for me. We received dinner afterward.
What’s one reward you wish to obtain or give for the vacations?
I’m actually loving Coach’s Coronary heart Crossbody bag. It’s pink, which is my favourite colour. Every thing in my house is pink. I’ve, like, three pink couches. Everybody else is on the impartial pattern, like, extra beige! And I’m like, pink all over the place! Crimson carpets, pink couches, pink work, pink pots for the crops!
There are tons of tweets proper now from followers who’re begging you and your Set It Up co-star Glen Powell to ‘deliver again good rom-coms.’ Ideas?

I don’t know the way it occurred, however individuals can be like, Zoey, I really like all of your rom-coms. And I’m like, Which of them are you speaking about? [Laughs].
Nicely, that one rom-com clearly had an actual impact on individuals.
I really like [Set It Up] a lot. I’m engaged on one other film with the identical author, Katie Silverman, and he or she’s simply god. I’m prepared for the individuals who liked Set It Up to see One thing From Tiffany’s. It’s actually completely different, and completely feel-good. I’m actually proud to place out one thing that makes you snigger and cry and really feel vacation pleasure. It’s a type of motion pictures you possibly can watch again and again.
Let’s get into the Type Notes questions. What’s the greatest style tip you’ve picked up on set?
Instantly, once you mentioned “on set,” I considered a bunch of bizarre hacks I’ve discovered. Like, let’s say you’ve an outdated classic garment or one thing you’re afraid of placing within the wash, and even getting dry cleaned, but it surely smells. In the event you get a sprig bottle and put vodka in it, somewhat spritz of vodka will take out the scent. That’s one thing costumers on set do lots.
