Edge? What edge?

With each red carpet appearance, Christina Ricci continues to shake off the offbeat reputation she's built her career on, while still scoring serious style points.

At the 2009 Outfest Opening Night Gala Of "La Mission," she epitomized by-the-book, grown-up glamour. Check out her tasteful blue satin dress, sleek chignon and dainty earrings, complemented by equally demure makeup. I checked everywhere for a little style subversion -- what, no black mani? -- but I got nothing.

Though her look has been consistently getting more sophisticated as time goes on, I speculate that this ultra-chic, conservative style was something of reaction to the hubbub she caused last month, when Ricci's nipples got more attention than her dress.

What do you think of Ricci's look?
