Christina Ricci knows exactly how hard it is to grow up in the spotlight — she’s been through it!
In the Modern Romance issue of Edit magazine, she both poses very romantically and opens up about her style difficulties growing up.
The actress attended her very first Cannes Film Festival at age 17 in 1997 wearing an unflattering gown she bought from Barneys, but the then-teen has had a major style evolution since then.
She reminisced about that fateful Cannes outfit, saying:
We just adore strategically-placed sheer panels, don't you?
They can really spice up your day!
Christina Ricci wore a form-fitting Thakoon LBD to the Fresh Air Fund Salute To American Heroes Gala in NYC on Thursday, giving her own personal seksi salute with just a hint of boobage.
We're sure it was appreciated!
Though her hair and makeup were simple, the 33-year-old added some panache with gold pumps and a single, mysterious band-aid across the top of her foot.
Sheer panels are great at distracting from that sort of thing, though!

That’s the one deet everyone wants to know!
And that is one of the veeerry few things Christina Ricci actually has figured out about her wedding.
Christina just got engaged to James Heerdegen in February, but she’s been trying to get some of the details all worked out to avoid the last minute stress that drives most brides-to-be a little wackadoodle!
As far as the biggest detail about the wedding, her dress (obvi!), Christina revealed just how personal it will end up being. She said:
Finally!! Someone who actually went punk!
Okay, sure, maybe Christina Ricci isn't wearing chains and a mohawk, but we'll take the plaid!
Xtina wore this funky plaid gown by the godmother of punk fashion, Vivienne Westwood, along with black hose and black strappy heels.
She paired the dress with Harry Winston jewels, styled her hair in a retro side sweep and painted her lips a bright red orange color.
Ricci was definitely rich in the rebel wear!
We wouldn't necessarily enjoy this outfit on any other red carpet, but given the night's theme, we're impressed with her commitment!

Christina Ricci has been beaming all over the place ever since she got engaged, and she took her happiness to The Smurfs 2 premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday.
The voice-over star looked chic in a black and white Oscar de la Renta dress, carried a Chanel bag, and added some color with her red Louboutin heels.
Christina's bold red lip and soft curls gave this a bit of a retro look, which she nailed!

From flight attendant to hospital patient???
Christina Ricci will have another go at the small screen in a starring role on NBC's new comedy, Girlfriend In A Coma.
The former Pan Am actress will play a woman who awakens from a long coma only to find she has a 17-year-old daughter.
Sounds weird, but we're intrigued!
While she has yet to sign on the dotted line, all signs point to her lack of consciousness as soon as next fall!
We've never really seen Christina or comas bring on the laughs, but desperate times call for desperate measures.
With the deep, sad comedy holes left on the network due to the end of The Office and 30 Rock, we're crossing out fingers that Girlfriend will fill the void!!

Great galloping guinea pigs — it's true!!
Christina Ricci and James Heerdegen are engaged to be married!
Ahhh, what wonderful news!
Our suspicions were confirmed today when the Pan Am star OFFICIALLY shared her secret on TV!
"Yeah. [We got engaged] a couple months back."
Yeah you did, girlfriend! And the rock is HUGE!
We haven't seen diamond that big since Gloria Stuart got hers all wet in Titanic!
Aww! Our eyes are getting misty just thinking about it!
We're so EXCITED for the 32-year-old actress and her new fiancé, we could cry!
But we won't, LOLz!
