In Sink or Swim, we confront dumbfounding celebrity looks: something’s definitely working and something’s most certainly not. Here, Christina Ricci attends last night’s Young Lions Gala in NYC and throws me for a loop. Pros: -It’s Wednesday! All grow’ed up! -Ricci is always a little unconventional, a little fashion forward, a little weird, so this makes sense on her. -The gray ombré skirt is crazy but kind of great! -She wisely subdues the skirt’s nuttiness with minimal accessories and basic black everywhere else. -Tuxedo jackets are cool! -The 80’s inspired strong eye and lip combo is striking without being too much. Cons -Wednesday wouldn’t be caught dead in enormous ruffles. -Maybe a little too weird. Or maybe not enough because the rest of the outfit is a snooze. -The contrast of crazy skirt with tailored, black and boring everywhere else doesn’t quite make sense. -Tuxedo jackets are silly! –80’s face.
