Zooey Deschanel is almost bubbling over with excitement: Her show "New Girl" is a hit, she just released a pop song with Prince, she's working on a movie with Bill Murray and Bruce Willis, and now she's sitting in a Tommy Hilfiger store filled with racks of dresses she helped design.

It's fitting, then, that bubbles are a theme of her new fashion collaboration with Hilfiger, To Tommy From Zooey.

A self-described "fabric nerd," Deschanel spent two years working with the designer to create a collection of flirty frocks based on her own personal style.

"It makes me so happy when people like them. And I love all the dresses," she beamed. "It's almost like I got a whole new closet full of clothes!"

The 34-year-old actress recently talked with The Associated Press.

AP: Prince guest-starred on the show, and you have a single out together. Are you two buds now?

Deschanel: He's very mysterious. I couldn't venture to call him my bud. He's too, like, aaaaah (she looks skyward in reverence). He is incredibly nice and so generous and just so talented - a really wonderful person and I feel lucky to know him.

AP: Now you're working on a film called "Rock the Kasbah." What can you share about it?

Deschanel: It's a movie with Bill Murray and Bruce Willis that Barry Levinson is directing. It's about a failing music manager who goes to Afghanistan and discovers a young talent, and she goes onto be on "Afghan Idol," which is like "American Idol," and I play like a fun character role in the beginning.

AP: Between acting and music, plus your website HelloGiggles and now this fashion line, do you ever run out of creative juice?

Deschanel: That's just how I keep going. I really never stop. It's just if I'm getting tired in one creative outlet, I switch to another.
