Sometimes I have to pinch myself. Last night I had the most amazing experience – I got to go to Christina Ricci’s Broadway debut in Time Stands Still. Honestly, I prefer a musical to a play (shocking, I know), but even without songs, dancing girls or cannons shooting glitter, I was captivated from the second the curtain went up. The cast is FANTASTIC — Laura Linney and Brian d’Arcy James are beyond amazing, and Christina, seriously, seemed like she was born to be on stage.
About a week ago I met Christina at the Ted Gibson Salon. She came to see me for color and to have Jan Marie, one of our super talents, do her Great Lengths extensions. Immediate crush, loved her — and her adorable dog Karen, a heartbreaker. I did a half head of highlights to soften her brunette base and make it a bit more golden for the season and followed that up with a frame highlight for extra sparkle. I loved it and more important (always) she loved it.
Anyway, back to the glamour. After the amazing performance, I got to accompany Ted to the backstage dressing room of Miss Ricci. What a moment of a lifetime! Backstage watching a Broadway star prepare for her debut party — DYING! In her dressing room, which was filled with roses and candles, the magic was happening. While Ted pulled Christina’s hair into a chic ponytail (very suitable for the Tiffany jewelry and the Alberta Ferretti dress — MAJOR), Francelle Daly (Nars Makeup Artist) was doing her makeup, and Karen was jumping around so excited the entire time. What a New York Moment.
What do you think about Christina’s look? LMK – Jason
