In or Out: Christina Ricci in Zac Posen
at The Plaza Hotel in New York City in Zac Posen.
We’re of two minds about this dress, which is good, because there are two of us. Lorenzo thinks it’s pretty fabulous and Tom thinks it’s just a bit too much dress for any one woman to handle. It pretty much always shakes out that way when we disagree. At the end of the day, you can always count on Lorenzo to be in the risk-taking “fierce and fabulous” camp and Tom’s over in the slightly more practical-minded “let’s discuss what this does to her hips” camp.
Here’s what we agree on: the fit is great and that neckline works really well for her shoulders, which are more square than we ever realized before. And we can both admit it’s a head-turner of a dress. But Tom ultimately thinks there are too many design elements going on here; too much of an underwear feel, and there’s a general sense that it makes her look broader than she is. We are unable to reach a conclusion here. The judges are split on the IN/OUT question. We’re afraid it’s all up to you, our little unborn Christmas fawns, to figure this one out. Let’s hear it. And show your work.
Oh, and we’re in agreement that the hair looks great and the makeup, while a bit heavy, also suits her. Carry on.
