Christina Ricci's $25,000 Versace couture gown which she wore to the 71st Annual Academy Awards in 1999 was lent to a Michigan teen to wear at her high school prom.
Kayla Staskiewicz of Waterford, Michigan got her Cinderella prom when her father entered her in a contest on the local Detroit NBC-affiliated TV station, WDIV-TV. The caveat of the contest was that Staskiewicz had to fit into the size zero gown. Though ten other girls tried on the dress, none of them could fit.
Staskiewicz said on the station's website that when she stepped into the dress the day before the Waterford Mott High School prom on May 13, it fit beautifully and her mom kept calling the teen Cinderella.
The Versace gown is pale grey with thousands of crystal beads, embroidered in a criss-cross pattern. Ricci wore the dress the year that "Sleepy Hollow," "No Vacancy" and "200 Cigarettes" came out. She was nominated for a Golden Globe the previous year for her role in "The Opposite of Sex."
Meanwhile, Ricci will make her return to television this fall to star in the new ABC show "Pan Am," which follows the glamour of the Pan Am travel company in the 1960s, when they were the biggest name in air travel. The show is scheduled to premiere this fall on Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
Ricci previously had a recurring role on "Ally McBeal" and has guest-starred on shows like "Malcolm in the Middle," "Grey's Anatomy" and "Saving Grace."
The 31-year-old actress recently wrapped "Bel Ami" opposite Uma Thurman and "Twilight" actor Robert Pattinson and Ricci admit in December that her male co-star is "a good kisser."
