Her Instagram is full of dreamy travel photos from different parts of the world. But in her new movie, Not Okay, Zoey Deutch is faking it till she makes it.
The 27-year-old actress is playing the role of Danni Sanders, a photo editor and wannabe writer who desperately wants to be famous and relevant on the internet.
She lies about attending a writer’s retreat in Paris and photoshops herself into various Parisian landmarks to gain social media following.

However, instead of coming clean when Paris is struck by a series of terrorist attacks, she leans into the lie and poses as a survivor, which garners extreme attention.
The satirical black comedy-drama, written and directed by Quinn Shephard, was released on Friday, July 29, on Hulu.

Earlier in the day, Lea Thompson’s look-alike daughter promoted her new project on the Today Show.
She showcased her styling prowess in a vibrant Carolina Herrera Resort 2023 ensemble that included a $590 form-fitting bright red top with floral prints and ruching.
Giving the look some chic contrast, she paired it with a $990 blue maxi skirt featuring the same floral print design and a fitted column silhouette.

The Zombieland actress added more colors to the look with mismatched blue and gold hoop earrings.
She also wore two chunky gold rings and slipped her feet into a pair of Christian Louboutin Iriza d’Orsay pumps in orange patent leather.
Her blonde tresses were styled in soft waves, cascading over her shoulder, while her features were accentuated with mascara, eyeliner, pink lipstick, and matching blush.

A day before, the Set It Up actress attended the premiere of Not Okay at the Angelika Film Center in New York City.
She looked every inch the glamour queen in a royal blue Elie Saab Fall/Winter 2022 mini dress that showed off her cleavage and toned legs.

The $3,725 form-fitting frock is made from pleated taffeta and features a plunging v-neckline and a mini hem. It comes with a removable voluminous ruffle bolero jacket that acts like the dress’ dramatic sleeves.

With the help of her stylist Elizabeth Stewart, Zoey continued with the monochromatic theme of her look by slipping her feet into a pair of Manolo Blahnik “Hangisi” pumps in blue satin that you can buy at Nordstrom.

The Politician actress went bare neck and instead accessorized with sapphire drop earrings and a matching ring from Tiffany & Co.
Wearing coordinating blue manicure, Zoey styled her tresses into a slick center-parted bun and applied light blue eyeshadow on her lids. She also wore mascara, pink lipstick, and a sweep of blush on her cheeks.
