Christina Ricci in Speed Racer
Get Christina Ricci's Look and Catch Her in the Spring Blockbuster, Speed Racer!
| Christina Ricci is a model and testament to the art of transformation. Never one to get bored with acting roles, she also likes to change up her look often. An angelic face is the perfect base for the many hair colors and hairdos that she has perfected over the years. Once a promising child star, Ricci has grown into a woman that commands attention on and off the screen. Her natural acting abilities carry her in films and her natural fashion sense carries her on the red carpet. Always chic, sophisticated, and with a little sex appeal thrown in, Ricci has turned into a true fashion maven. |
Ricci has turned the tables once again by starring in the spring blockbuster, Speed Racer. Playing opposite Emile Hirsch, another phenomenal actor better known to dark roles and indie films, Ricci embraces a role that is born straight from a children’s cartoon.
Speed Racer Movie Starring Christina Ricci
| Born to race cars, Speed Racer (Emile Hirsch) is aggressive, instinctive and, most of all, fearless. His only real competition is the memory of the brother he idolized - the legendary Rex Racer (Scott Porter), whose death in a race has left behind a legacy that Speed is driven to fulfill. Speed is loyal to the family racing business led by his father, Pops Racer (John Goodman), the designer of Speed's thundering Mach 5. When Speed turns down a lucrative and tempting offer from Royalton Industries, he not only infuriates the company's maniacal owner but also uncovers a terrible secret: some of the biggest races are being fixed by a handful of ruthless moguls who manipulate the top drivers to boost profits. If Speed won't drive for Royalton, Royalton will see to it that the Mach 5 never crosses another finish line. The only way for Speed to save his family's business and the sport he loves is to beat Royalton at his own game. With the support of his family and his loyal girlfriend, Trixie (Christina Ricci), Speed teams with his one-time rival, the mysterious Racer X (Matthew Fox), to win the race that had taken his brother's life: the death-defying, cross-country rally known as The Crucible.

Christina Ricci Speeds down the Fashion Fast Track
Christina Ricci Is Simply Chic: Steal Her Look!
Simple yet elegant is the perfect way to describe the outfit that Christina Ricci wore to the 2008 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race in Long Beach California. She may be small at 5’1”, but she knows how to dress and take command of every inch. To work her curves, Ricci always defines her waist with a perfectly structured dress, a wide fitted waistband, or a cinching belt. Here are some tips on how to steal Christina Ricci's style:
Get the Look: Find a Pencil Skirt
Choose a pencil skirt in a shade and length that flatters your body. To get Ricci’s look, choose a black pencil skirt like this one from newportnews.com. If you would prefer a slight variation to Ricci's look, then Laura Dahl’s Darcy Skirt is a great, versatile choice.
Get the Look: The Perfect Tank Top
To keep your look chic, pair the skirt with a tank top that has a strap width of two fingers or more. We like the look and feel of the James Perse Racerback Tank, but if you want to spend a little less, the Textured Muscle Tank from Charlotte Russe is another stylish choice. Avoid overly bright tanks, which can draw attention away from the overall look.
Get the Look: Picking Round-Toe Pumps
Steal Christina Ricci’s look with the items we’ve chosen, and don’t forget to catch her in Speed Racer, which was just released in theaters on May 9th! You can also steal Christina's spring makeup and hairstyle here!
