Christina Ricci covers the April issue of Marie Claire UK, and she’s wearing a yellow Louis Vuitton dress (or top) that looks suspiciously like the one worn by Lana Del Ray’s lips on the cover of British Vogue’s March issue. I think Christina is still promoting her starring role in the “Pan Am” television series even though the ratings haven’t been great and speculation has swirled of an inevitable cancellation. However, ABC maintains that the show is still in the running for a second season, so who knows. The photoshoot itself is quite lovely and springlike with lots of soft lighting and breezy fabrics. Not to mention airbrushed nips, which I’ve included at the bottom of this post. Here’s the subscriber’s cover of the magazine and some interview excerpts as well:
On hitting her 30s: “I’m so glad I’m not 20 years old any more. I was in a hurricane. I’m a lot calmer now. I don’t cause destruction for myself and others everywhere I go. I take things as they happen and I’ve learned to be calm about things. Troubleshoot as problems arise and just make the best out of things.”
On the importance of being herself: “I’ve always said to people you should never let anyone try to change who you are because the only commodity you really have is you individuality. There are a million actresses and that’s the only thing that makes you special.”
On her future man: “Somebody smart and funny that I love being with.”

I agree with Christina that reaching one’s 30s is generally a calmer period in life, but she’s only 32. Once she hits 35 or so, her attitude might change. I know that mine did, for I really miss the relative freedom of my early 20s. Still, maybe she has a real point in regards to something that she’s not quite clarifing, like say, relationship drama. As far as I’m aware, she broke off her engagement with Owen Benjamin in 2009, so the timing Christina hitting her 30s at that point makes sense.
