In or Out: Lucy Liu & Christina Ricci
To be honest, we had planned to do a post just on Miss Liu’s outfit but we saw CR in the pics for this event and had to feature them both. Has Christina changed stylists lately? Suddenly she’s wearing all these meant-to-be-talked-about outfits. Let’s break it down.
When we first laid eyes on the dress, we were all, “Wow, so ’90s.” but in a good way. Not that it isn’t a modern looking dress. Certainly the cutouts are very in right now. We haven’t figured out who the designer is yet.
But it’s a very tight silhouette with a very prime-time soap opera hem length and while you can do some fabulous things with that while you’re young and have the body to pull it off, unless you pay attention to the details, you can look a bit trashy. It’s all a roundabout way of saying that she didn’t pull it off in the styling. The heavy shoes, the bag with the kind of sporty strap length, the severe hair – it’s all a bit much for a dress that’s already quite enough.
Now, Miss Liu on the other hand:
That girl did it just right.
Model: Magdalena Frackowiak
Sure, it’s a bit safe, but it’s classic and simple and the shoes are fierce. Can’t go wrong with that.
