This gold dress is the kind of thing that fits my mental description of the type of dress that should be called a ΓÇÿwrapperΓÇÖ. You know?  ΓÇ£I threw on a wrapper and smoked a cigarillo.ΓÇ¥ Apparently the woman wearing my wrapper is a flapper .

Anyway, itΓÇÖs a whole lot of gold, and while Ricci got love from me re: anything she does is cute, she canΓÇÖt carry off this amount of dress the way a taller woman with a fuller figure could.     

ItΓÇÖs always the same for Christina, isnΓÇÖt it? SheΓÇÖs consistently straddling the line between little-girl urchin and grown woman, and itΓÇÖs rare that she actually lands somewhere in the middle. I wish she felt ambitious enough to get rid of the bangs and do something totally new, so that she could stop evoking every role sheΓÇÖs played since she was 17.

But then again, maybe she doesnΓÇÖt want that. ChristinaΓÇÖs hung on to the same level of fame for years. Maybe she gets something out of living the same thing over again ΓÇô nothing changing, from her hair to her body. Lord knows it wouldnΓÇÖt be the first time a celebrity tried hard to cling onto the past.
