"These are film cameras and filmstrips," she told E! News of her manicure. "It's continuous -- serial nails, if you will." As for her gown, Deschanel explained, "I didn't know what anybody else was going to wear. I just chose it because I liked it."

Deschanel attended the star-studded event with boyfriend Jamie Linden; she split with her musician husband Ben Gibbard in November 2011 and stepped out with Linden in June 2012.

The New Girl actress -- who lost the Best Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy award to Girls' Lena Dunham -- has made a habit of incorporating kooky nail art into her red carpet looks. At the 69th Annual Golden Globes in 2012, she proudly showed off her tuxedo-inspired manicure. As she got ready for the Jan. 13 event at home, Deschanel shared a picture of herself primping exclusively with Us Weekly.
