In or Out: Christina Ricci in Dolce & Gabbana

Posted on May 11, 2011

Christina Ricci attended the 4th Annual Television Academy Honors held in Beverly Hills in Dolce & Gabbana and we’re just not feeling it, you guys. This plays perfectly into our schemes because you’ve all had it way too easy lately and it’s about time you got a hard In or Out, wouldn’t you say? In fact, say it right now: “It’s about time I got a hard In or Out!” Slap your knee for emphasis.

Anyway, check it:

Boring, right? But also not quite bad, exactly? Pretty blouse, pretty skirt, appropriate deployment of the Minnie Mouse shoes, so why is this not working for us, kittens? We’ll tell you what: that hair’s not working for us at all. Someone needs to get the hairburners of Hollywood (this fall on Bravo!) to up their dosage because the hair on female stars has been depressing for the last couple of months. Snap out of it, queens! And let’s face it: she shouldn’t wear her hair off her face. The girl needs bangs and that’s no crime.

But the whole look feels a bit down-in-the-dumps, no? Like we said, pretty pieces, but it’s not coming together as anything more than an expensive work outfit.

VOTE NOW!

IN! She looks fierce and hot, you picky-ass bitches!
OUT! She looks like she’s taking a smoke break at a Regional Director’s Conference!

 

The Kitten Consensus on Blake Lively’s slutty sequined Chanel sausage was a vehement OUT.

      I concur with the hair statement, but other than that I think she looks pretty. i think if her hair looked a little happier, this look would pull together.

      i don’t know that she needs bangs necessarily but that sad limp bit of side bang is not working at all. i wore the target version of that outfit to work monday so out. unless she came directly from her office job.

    • Anonymous

      I disagree that she needs bangs – Christina Ricci has made her giant forehead work for her for years. But I do agree her hair is sad. A sleeker ponytail or one with a little curl might’ve worked better. Her hair looks a bit dry.

      • muzan-e

        I agree absolutely. The porcelain-skinned, huge-eyed, slightly strange beauty has always been her thing. There’s no need for bangs, as long as there’s something to frame her face. Without this her face just becomes sharp and ill-proportioned; alien instead of quirky.

      She looks like a secretary who used a red Sharpie to slap some lip color on before checking out 10 minutes early on a Friday to meet with the steno pool at the corner bar. OUT.

      out. the combo of the poorly-fitted blouse and the downright lazy ponytail = an automatic out. the individual pieces are nice but boring, and that’s not enough to save the general dumpiness of the whole thing.

      OUT! I’m sorry, but as another woman who really looks better with bangs and/or hair around her face, it’s best you just figure it out and deal with it. Also, beyond that fact, her looks totally undone. Put a little effort in, seriously, or at least put the effort in to look effortless.

      OUT – It’s a boring look. Her hair looks like she just left the gym. The skirt’s cute, but the blouse is shapeless. This is a costume for a TV show, not red carpet wear. Although maybe we can give her points for being modest or something…. no, never mind. It’s just too shapeless!

      OUT. I haven’t had enough caffeine yet this morning and she’s putting me to sleep. Boring and secretaryish.

    • andyleigh

      I find the skirt to be a tad long. It should be just above the knee, I think. The shoes and bag would be better in different colors, although I like the style of shoe with this outfit. She needs a bit of jewelry or something, but not too much. But that hair. That hair is hiddy. I like it pulled back, but that ponytail is just ragged.

      I do love the blouse, and I think that the lines of the outfit are lovely. She does look like a hot secretary, though.

      I’m going to give her an IN-complete.

      I think you’re right, that this is a plain–almost business-appropriate–outfit, but I think she’s In because the fit and quality are all there. Also, the jewelry, bag, shoes and make-up are classy and beautiful. The ponytail is untidy–with the obvious different lengths and the bit that’s too short and yet not pinned up–and detracts from the overall quality and class of the outfit. I give her an In, however, because whomever made and then tailored that white satin blouse to fit her performed a minor miracle by making white satin look neither cheap nor tacky.

      Come on you, guys. Compared to the other OUTs, she is soooo IN. Granted not her best look, but still her B game is better than other’s A game, so give a gurl a break, PUH LEAZE.

      This isn’t a horrible look and just because she didn’t hit it out of the ballpark doesn’t mean she deserves an OUT. This is a solid base hit, she’s still a good performer on the fashion team and I’ve beat this damn sports analogy to death with a baseball bat.

      In other words, you are picky ass bitches and she looks fierce and hot, and I say that with both love and complete bitchiness in my bitter dead heart.

      I like it. It looks high quality and expensive. At her age I would wear younger looking clothes. She looks boring but she also looks good.

      As a Fivehead I applaud her for embracing her fiveheadedness. Just don’t like how stringy that ponytail looks. Love the outfit. That ivory is gorgeous against her skin.

      And IN.

      I agree absolutely. The porcelain-skinned, huge-eyed, slightly strange beauty has always been her thing. There’s no need for bangs, as long as there’s something to frame her face. Without this her face just becomes sharp and ill-proportioned; alien instead of quirky.

      IN just because she at least looks nice. If she had the face and hair going on she would be fabulous. Her hair has been looking atrocious for weeks now. Deep condition much? Fresh dye much? It saddens me to see women with money walk around with fried hair.

      Out. I think it looks sloppy. The hair, obvious. I don’t like the black bra underneath the blouse, and think the hem is too long for her. And that clutch makes me want to vomit. Makeup is pretty, though.

      Frame the face with something elegant or at least ethereal, and team it with a better blouse in the same fabric. The skirt is classic Ricci: sleek, dark, almost unexpected and just a little bit dangerous. The heels are acceptable. But teamed with a straight black skirt, the horrible bow on that blouse descends straight into Office Pool, Circa 1950 and the whole look falls apart. The design is awful, but the fabric is luminous on her, and maybe it has a sleek, edgy cousin hidden somewhere that would’ve been just fine.

      A very halfhearted IN. The fit and quality of the clothes elevate them above most office-wear. The hair really is awful, though – bangs would have made the ponytail work, but as it is her hair just totally downgrades the potential of the clothes to escape being boring. Actually, I changed my mind: OUT.

    • Michael Jones

      I’ll give an OUT. This looks like what a well-dressed secretary wears to meet her girlfriends for cocktails at 5:00, and she’s Christina Ricci… Shouldn’t Wednesday Addams be slightly more edgy than that?

    • Mrs. Joe

      I would say “In” pending anymore information about the event. I have no idea what others were wearing to it. If it is sort of a business lunch sort of dress, she’s doing great. If it’s more of a cocktail dress kind of thing, she would have to be out. She might have been able to make that ponytail work if she had smoothed it as much as the rest with some curls or something. It totally looks like mine does when I don’t wash it!

Lovely blouse but I probably would’ve chosen a print, or hell, just anything louder than a shiny billowy ivory titbow.

      Out, but only because the event calls for something more glam. The outfit is fine and she doesn’t look bad, but this is the kind of outfit a woman wears when she’s not sure how everyone else is going to dress, so she plays it safe. Or, she is doing the work-to-evening thing and had a blazer or sweater over that in office earlier in the day.

      It really depends on what the standard for being “IN” is these days. For example, sometimes TLo give fairly high scores in the pairs division to people who are merely well put together and generally acceptable (especially men with appropriate cuff breaks). I think if Ms. Ricci were being judged under the pairs division format, she’d merit a 6. She looks cute and somewhat polished, but she’s hardly “bringing it.” I still say IN.

      I’d like it, except, o dear lord of the dance, that hair, and the accessorizing is not helping matters at all. This is a couldda been (cute, not breath-taking), but for styling and hair fail.

      Sorry to say it, but, oh, just for the hair and sad bag alone, OUT.

      The hair is awful. There is no outfit that would have looked good with it.
