Christa B. Allen in Jenni Kayne at the 2013 TCA Summer Press Tour Party

Posted on August 05, 2013

It’s just so damn nice to see a look with some real color to it. Enough with the grays, blacks, and whites, celebs. You’re all starting to look distressingly unimaginative. Now we wouldn’t presume to tell a woman what a woman ought to think, but tell if her she’s got to think, think pink.

Shame on you if you don’t get the reference. Shame. Christa? Show the nice people what we’re babbling about.

“Revenge” star Christa B. Allen attends the 2013 Disney/ABC Television Critics Association’s Summer Press Tour Party in Beverly Hills in a Jenni Kayne dress paired with a Jimmy Choo ‘Cosma’ clutch.

Jenni Kayne Spring 2013 Collection


The hair looks great, the makeup looks great, the color looks fabulous on her and the silver pumps are making us happy. It’s just a very sweet look with a touch of chic to it. Nicely done.

    Funny Face?

    • tb

      crap we’re old…

    • Stacy Feng

      I bet you figured it out using Emphathicalism!

  • Insidiously

    The hair I dislike. It’s so middle school.

  • sugarkane105

    Yay! She got rid of the cocker spaniel hair.

  • Sunraya

    Adorable! Love it!

  • I love how into Funny Face y’all are.

    • MilaXX

      Isn’t the book cover stylized like the ad for Funny Face?
      ETA: Google tells me no, but for some reason that phrase reminds me of the book.

    • Rhonda Shore

      I recently watched it again just for the Suzy Parker and Dovima parts…”Itsa Bucci!”

    • Claudia

      Oh, see I was thinking of Grease, but the “Think Pink” ref is from Grease 2…either way, I’m wrong! 😀

    • Rhonda Shore

      There’s nothing about her look that I’d change! Love it! Simplicity is underrated…

  • Best she has looked in a long while. I’m mesmerized by her hair. I don’t know if it’s brilliant highlights and lowlights or a trick of the lighting or both, but I am deeply in covet mode.

    • StellaZafella

      I think the hair just illustrates the right way to do ombre effects…as opposed to looking like the roots have been growing out for 2 years.

    • Lucía Gavello

      It’s probably the FIRST outfit of hers that I actually like, the hair is a great improvement too.

  • Snailstsichr

    I like her shoes better than the flats on the models and love the cute clutch.

  • Shawn EH

    Love the metallic accessories!

    • NinaBoo

      Me too! But the shininess of the shoes has me hoping she’s wearing underpants.

      • Shawn EH

        Maybe they’re shiny too!

  • snarkykitten

    it’s a pink sack

    • demidaemon

      For a sack, it is impeccably fitted.

  • barbarienne

    I don’t know what’s up with the hair color, but for some reason I really like it. I guess if the hair is smooth and polished, you can get away with anything.

    Not entirely sure I like the dress, but completely agree the color is fantastic. Love the purse.

  • ‘Becca’lise Deveaux

    Pink for bags! Pink for shoes! Razzle, dazzle, and spread the news…!

  • mlle

    That clutch is the cutest thing I’ve seen today.

  • tereliz

    This is the best I’ve seen CBA look, well, EVER! Hair, face, dress, shoes… she’s practically perfect in every way. Bangs look good on her. These bangs, anyway.

  • MilaXX

    Love the entire look. It’s young & cute. More importantly it’s colorful.

  • DominoEstella

    I love her hair and I normally don’t like the ombre hair thing on anyone over 22 but it looks so damn healthy and shiny!

  • nannypoo

    She looks great. Her makeup is beautiful.

  • ThaliaMenninger

    Bless you for referencing a Fred Astaire movie. He is my favorite of all favorites. Anyway, “Banish the black, burn the blue, and bury the beige!” And I love this look on her.

  • JuliaInBlack

    Pink as f*ck. Love it.

  • Ekw

    One of my favorite musical numbers!

  • Deac82

    for the first time she’s giving me young sandra bullock – an uptight version of her, but still reminiscent.

  • conniemd

    Love the clutch.

  • neonseattle

    i’m in love with this.

  • MartyBellerMask

    Adorable adorable adorable.

  • If you’re going to matchy, this is the way to do it.
    In related news, I miss Musical Mondays.

    • Constant Reader

      Me too!

  • Bethany Roullett

    For a second there I was thinking Jennifer Garner looked pretty awesome… But really, I think this is a cute look. Love the clutch.

  • Randa

    Very cute. Love the metallic shoes!

  • Louise Bryan

    A very cute girl in a very cute outfit. What’s not to like? Maybe the hair… it looks better when it’s all curvy and wavy.

  • LaSylphide

    Amazing how terrific something this simple can look when it’s got color and good styling. Plus, the dress is well cut, and it fits.

  • MzzPants

    I know the metallic pumps will get annoying in another week or two, but for now I LUV them.

  • Jennica Brocious

    Is anyone going to mention she’s on revenge not girls?

  • silaria

    The third example in as many days! I’m calling it: metallic pumps are a summer mini-trend.

  • clairellis

    I do love this whole look.

  • ankali

    Needs jewelry to my eye. The pink is just so… unrelieved.

  • Celandine1

    It’s pretty, chic and fresh. I think this might be the best she has looked thus far on red carpet photos that I have seen. LOVE LOVE LOVE that the cocker spaniel hair is gone!

  • luluransom

    Of course you presume, darlings. It’s why we love you. Bless you for the FF ref, made my morning.

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    …and that includes the kitchen sink… Think Pink!!

  • Constant Reader

    J’adore a Funny Face reference!

  • marlie

    I love everything about this look – it’s FAB! And SOOO much better than that travesty she had on the other day.

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    WOW! That is the best I’ve seen her look in recent memory. Love her hair, love the spare lines of the dress and I love that she went with a metallic shoe.

  • Lauren Schneider

    I JUST realized that she plays young Jennifer Garner in 13 Going on 30. O M G.

  • sunnycalif

    I’m so so grateful she didn’t go with the bubblegum pink lipstick! She looks great!

  • judybrowni

    Funny Face!
