Zooey Deschanel's Met Ball gown was designed to be an "original, quirky and fun" take on the punk themed dress code.

The actress opted for a one shouldered blue and white striped Tommy Hilfiger dress for the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala on Monday.

The gown made headlines as it didn't seem to fit the punk themed dress code for the prestigious fashion event.

However, the dress' designer explained that if punk is standing up against the establishment then it succeeded.

“The dress was an original, quirky and fun take on the punk theme," Tommy told PEOPLE. "[The creation] is a special design for Zooey.”

The New Girl star was barely recognisable as she walked the red carpet at the event sporting a different hair style.

Zooey is known for her blunt bangs, but for the Met Ball she swept these to the side giving her a totally new look.

Tommy added that Zooey's input was vital in the process of creating her gown, as well as overall appearance for the event.

“She wanted to be really involved,” Tommy added. “It was a lot of fun to collaborate with her on the design. We were inspired by the seersucker looks from our Spring 2013 collection.”

The summery blue-and-white gown might not fit traditional ideas of punk style, but Zooey did make a nod to the trend through her choice of bag.

The brunette held a black and hot-pink safety pin motif designed Edie Parker clutch.

“[It's] a perfect match for Zooey’s sense of style," Tommy said about the punk dress code.
