Were the 1960s really the peak of women's fashion? In a new interview, Pan Am star Christina Ricci talks about the styles she has been sporting on the show. "It's very uncomfortable. I can't believe what these poor women had to go through to fit a certain image," she said. "The airlines had girdle checks and make-up checks - I'm certainly glad those days are over!" When it comes to her own fashion sense, she adds "I am quite short, but I love clothes. I think fashion is a true extension of oneself. My moods are reflected in the clothes I wear. If I'm happy, I might pick out a colourful Yves Saint Laurent dress." [Belfast Telegraph]
