Celebrity Style: Marcia Cross

I've heard from a few of my friends who are "Desperate Housewives" fans that Marcia Cross' character, Bree, dresses much better on screen than off. I tend to agree, but at the Chrysalis Butterfly Ball, Marcia looks youthful and modern in her yellow silk dress. Although a bit of self tanner would have served her well, she still looks pretty and effortless. Normally, the color yellow drowns out women with pale skin, but Marcia's spicy hair revives the look with a dash of color!

I think it is a good look. I think her makeup and not her skin is the problem.

WHOAAAA NELLY. BREATHE guys. Isn't Fab allowed to state her opinion? last time I checked she's got a very sexy constitutional right called free speech and by golly if she feels like Marcia Cross is too pale or too thin then she should feel free to say it. Furthermore, what are all these allegations about Fab's recommendation being dangerous or harmful? She recommended self-tanner, the totally safe alternative to ultra-violet radiation---unless I missed something. PS: she could definitely use a bottle of famous dave's!

Gals, if you recall, I mentioned in the Celebrity Style: Debra Messing that I admire her for embracing her natural pale skin. So I am definitely not hating on pale skin. In fact, I normally dislike the too-tanned look and my latest motto is "pale is the new tan!" I just thought that Marcia could use a little bit of self tanner because a yellow dress tends to wash out pale skin. I wasn't implying that she needs it to be beautiful :) xo

yeah fab, what's up with all the hating on pale skin recently? it's normal that people have different skin colors. why should she have to put a bunch of nasty smelling chemicals on her skin? i'm fair and have neither the time nor the inclination to deal with tanning. it's like one more dumb thing that i don't care about.

One of my favorite DHWs! Oh please, she's gorgeous the way she is..she DOESN'T need any tanning lotion, enough already with that crap!! I love her hair, the color of it and her skin tone and the dress and shoes..everything, it's simple but she looks great! :D..everyone doesnt need or have to have a tan,stop being like the many who think if they aren't bronze or orange or whatever color they turn into that they're not hott with their own natural skin colour, well unless you're deathly pale/goth pale do what you want but dont go overboard!

She looks amazing. She definitely does not look her age. The overly tanned skin no matter what method it was obtained by does not look good. Tanning is skin damage.
