Face Off: Zooey Deschanel vs. Katy Perry

08.06.2012by: Droz

Ya'll voted in favor of Kate Beckinsale over Jessica Biel in our last Face Off, giving the English beauty the win in a 3 to 1 landslide. I'm amazed that you guys managed such a decisive victory. Jessica is quite a creature. I would have thought it would require more agonizing from you. I guess Kate is just that special.

This week we compare two ladies who are quite easily comparable. We all know Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel are long lost siblings, clearly the result of some mix-up at the hospital or the sideline dealings of one or more of their parents. Okay, we don't know that, but I suspect as much. How else can you explain two women, completely unrelated and unconnected so far as we know, turning out in such an identical way? Mere coincidence? Yeah, probably. Still, how does one select the better of two ladies so similarly fashioned? I don't know, but let's see what we can do.

Faces

It might be silly to pick one face over the other here when the two of them are so similar. The only aspect of the two that truly differentiates them is the eyes. Zooey's got two incredible aqua blue pools for eyes, so distinctive and expressive. 99% of the charm and beguilement she so readily and effortlessly exudes comes from those expressive eyes. She simply wouldn't be the cutie she is without them.

Then again, Katy's got some pretty peepers as well. Being that these two are so similar in this area, it would be pointless to try to say that one is better at being identical than the other. In fact, even Google has a difficult time distinguishing between the two, often mixing them up when searching for images of one or the other. The similarities are rather uncanny. So it's an even split here.

Body

Zooey's body is nothing to scoff at, though I think Katy has got her beat in more than a few areas. Beyond that, Zooey also seems more content as of late to keep her body covered in attire of a decidedly non-alluring fashion. I'm not entirely sure why that is, as she's quite well proportioned and fully capable of filling out more provocative outfits. I guess she's not eager to trade on her good body.

It's from the neck down that these two start to diverge a bit. Of course, we all know the delights Katy's body possesses. She's probably just as famous for her boobs as her body of work - perhaps even more. It's probably safe to say that Katy would not be the star that she is were it not for those two lovely bits of flesh that project from her chest. Gotta give credit where credit is due.

Sex Appeal

The ironically dowdy hipster style to which Zooey aligns herself ends up hurting her a bit here. Trench coats and librarian clothes don't do a lot for the libido. I like her cutesy thing, but it's the exact opposite of Katy's approach, not surprisingly making her more cute than sexy. Not to say that she isn't or couldn't be sexy, if she wanted to be. I just don't think she wants to be. She seems to prefer a wink and smile, which is sweet, but lags behind in the sexiness department.

Not as much confusion about why someone would want to get on board with Katy's sex appeal. She pretty much embodies the concept of sexy woman. Hardly a moment goes by when she's not putting her sexy out there for all to see. Sure, she sometimes goes a bit overboard with her attempts at garnering attention in this area. Still, I'm not going to lie and deny that her approach doesn't work - because it totally does.

Personality

It's a rare occurrence round these parts when a hottie's personality is more important than her physical attributes. Let's be honest - most of what we deal with here tends to focus on physical gratification over who a hottie might be as a person. Still, I have to say that my favorite thing about Zooey is who she is as a person. She seems like she'd be a lot of fun to hang around. It can't always be about sex, right? Eventually you'd have to stop for a minute and talk. I'll bet Zooey's pillow talk is fantastic.

I don't know for sure, but something tells me that Katy's rather bizarre outer persona is at least somewhat reflective of who she is as a person. And if that's the case, we probably wouldn't get along very well as people. Not to say that this is necessarily a bad thing, in and of itself. Her flash over substance approach just isn't my thing, especially if it intrudes into her personality. Being someone more laid back and down-to-earth by nature, that kind of person inflicts a high annoyance factor for me. Though annoyance would probably be a mutual thing between us.

Career

Zooey's the triple threat. Actress, musician, iPhone spokesperson - she brings a lot to the table. And she does it all well (except for the iPhone thing. That's an annoying commercial). I enjoy most of the various things she does and count many of her films as some of my favorites. Clear winner here.

Yeah, not so big on Katy's stuff. I know she has her fans and ya'll should feel free to speak with your votes here, but it ain't working for me. I'm sure she does what she does well, or else she wouldn't be as prolific as she is. I just go another way as far as my entertainment goes.

IT'S A TIE!

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that two ladies with such conformity would tie for the win here. Sure, they have their strengths and weaknesses, similarities and differences, but it appears that such things ultimately end up cancelling each other out. Perhaps they were fated to be equivalents from the start - like some weird cosmic balance they maintain by their very existence. Let's hope nothing happens to either of them, lest we face serious, Doc Brown style consequences for the universe.

Just one man's opinion. Which one do you prefer?

Zooey for sure...

Katie is pretty hot, I will agree to that, but Zooey is not only hot, she has one of the best personalities in Hollywood.

Zooey wins for me :)

I'm weird, but I prefer cute to hot xD I like Katy too, don't get me wrong, but Zooey just seems like a great person and I adore her lovable personality. She seems like a lot of fun, and I always hear such nice things about her :)

Good call

There is no way I could decide between the two.

Tie?! Incorrect!

Katy by miles and miles. She wins in all categories as far as I'm concerned (although why a pop singer is the subject of a movies website is a little beyond me, but whatever). Zooey is so overrated both in looks and acting ability. And her so-called "quirkiness" just gets annoying after a while. The only thing Katy ever did wrong was dress up like a Las Vegas Smurfette.

The age of quirky Big-eyed brunettes

I just want to referee a staring contest between these two. Then have the winner face off against the victor of a Lizzie Caplan vs. Krysten Ritter match.

Winner gets to stare into my soul.

I agree, but...

I totally agree with this tie, HOWEVER, if you put a gun to my head, I'd have to go with Zooey. I just like her style and quirkiness more.

Katy - with ease

You choose Zooey's career over Katy Perry? Katy is easily one of the biggest musicians on the planet and that is all she focuses on, Zooey does not even come close. Katy is much hotter as well.

Katy

I don't care about either of their careers and I'm not that keen on their public personalities. One is trying to be a child and the other too dorky. I like Zooey's face features more, she's definitely a cutie, but Katy's not far behind and that body is simply amazing. That's why she gets the nod

a tie? Zooey is very cute & a great actress, but I dig Katy Perry more & yes i like her music also. So to choose career for Zooey was unfair. So is this the new face-off trend, celebrities that look alike?, whats next week Natalie Portman & Kiera Knghtley, which Portman would win.

Kind of agree. They have two very different careers you cannot compare.

Katy for me. Career should be at least a tie if not entirely for Katy, if its based on success.

Zooey Deschanel

Yes, they're both manufactured personalities but Zooey's persona seems closer to who she is as a person. Katy sings about "I kissed a girl and I liked it" but has "Jesus" tattooed on her wrist. I suspect the sexpot image is a put-on.

People can believe in Jesus and still enjoy kissing the same sex and such. It isn't like if you love Jesus, you automatically fall in line with what fanatics want.

Deschanel all the way for me. Sure, she tries a little too hard with the manic pixie dream girl thing, but it works for her, and even given that she comes off way more natural than Katy Perry. With Perry, I get the over-packaged, over-sugared, over-marketed feel, like there's so much of an artificial boost. And actually, strip away the crazy outfits, the blue wigs and the thick stage makeup, and you still have a rather beautiful woman. And Perry's constructed persona of a cheery sex kitten
