Christina Ricci won our hearts with her tweenager goth-girl roles in The Adams Family and Casper back in the ’90s, and our affection has only deepened in the nearly two decades (!) since with performances in films like 200 Cigarettes, Monster and New York, I Love You. And thank goodness we’ve been able to see her a little more often these days, thanks to roles on the small screen. (Did you catch her on The Good Wife?)

But let’s discuss Christina’s real-life performances on the red carpet—the girl’s got style. Whether rocking Thakoon or Thom Browne for a movie premiere or an over-the-top gown at the annual Met Ball, she’s consistently one to watch. And you know why? She keeps fashion spectators on their toes. She’s experimental, adventurous and invariably chic.

Our Christina Ricci style crush doesn’t stop with her clothing choices. We’d take hair and makeup pointers from her any day. Lucky for The Window, that hypothetical became a reality when she was chosen as our October Influencer. Given beauty is this month’s theme, we quizzed Christina on her favorite products (“My La Mer treatments!”) as well as her earliest makeup memory (“watching my mother do her makeup with her morning coffee.”) As for her thoughts on the definition of beauty, this lady has some wise words: “I firmly believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder and therefore not for me to define. But I definitely think I find beauty in the business of being a woman—how a woman smells, how she does her lipstick, etcetera.”  Preach!
