Christina Ricci - Christina Ricci gets style inspiration from her mother
Christina Ricci has adopted the same ladylike look as her mother, who gave her the confidence to be more daring with her look.
Christina Ricci says her mother is her biggest style inspiration.
The 'Bel Ami' actress is famed for her feminine style with a gothic twist, and admits her love of all things ladylike comes from her mother Sarah, a former Ford model, who gave her the confidence to experiment with her clothes.
She told Net-a-Porter's magazine The Edit: ''I've always loved 60s clothing, ladylike stuff. Seeing all my mother's tear sheets must have had an impact on me.
''[As I got older] I got smaller and more comfortable with myself. It was a gradual thing ... I became more like my mother. I began to wear what I wanted to wear.''
The 33-year-old star is very conscious of her reputation as a former child star and says she always strives to look older when she puts an outfit together, as well as becoming more daring over time.
Christina explained: ''I do have this mentality of trying to dress older. I find people treat me more seriously if I'm well-dressed and put together.
''I'm finding I don't want to stick to my rigid rules any more. Now I think, 'Well, I've never worn those kind of pants before - let's try them!' ''
However, the brunette hasn't always been so fashion-savvy and revealed she used to dress herself for big events in the early years of her career - often to disastrous results.
She reminisced: ''It was the mid-90s, so you didn't have to borrow clothes, or wear the latest thing The first time I went to Cannes - for 'The Ice Storm' - we went to Barneys and picked out the gowns ourselves.''
