Net-A-Porter has teamed up with photographer Victor Demarchelier (son of famed photographer Patrick Demarchelier) and child star Christina Ricci for this weeks digital edition of The Edit.
In the editorial, Ricci sheds her gothic vibe for airier fabrics and lady like pieces by Alexander McQueen, Oscar de la Renta, Temperley London, Valentino, Alberta Ferretti, and Dolce & Gabbana in a palette of white, ivory, and rose.
“I find people treat me more seriously if I’m well dressed and put together,” said Ricci who favors edgier designers like Thakoon, Tom Ford, and Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy.
Ricci goes on to chat about the perils of dressing oneself for the Cannes film festival in the ’90s. “I was a 17 year old fright fest,” the actress exclaimed about her first appearence at the award show. “I had just dyed my hair blonde and I was overweight”. She reveals that she did all her own shopping for the red carpet when she was younger. “We just went to Barneys and picked out the gowns ourselves,” Ricci said of shopping with her mom.

These days the actress is decidedly lax about her fashion sense. “I’m finding I don’t want to stick to my rigid rules any more. Now I think, ‘Well, I’ve never worn those kind of pants before — let’s try them!’”
What she’s not lax about is what she’ll be wearing to her upcoming nuptials to actor James Heerdegen. “I’m still waiting from the confirmation from the designer that I can announce that,” she told Net-A-Porter.
We can’t wait to see what the former dark side actress will reveal.
