Christina Ricci is all grown up.

The enchanting child star best known for her roles in The Addams Family, Casper and The Ice Storm over the years has now resurfaced brilliantly as the cover girl of Net-a-Porter's online magazine, The Edit.

In the issue, she seduces the camera with her mesmerizing brown eyes and charming doll-like features, posing in a splendid array of delicate, feminine designs by Alexander McQueen, Oscar de la Renta, Temperley London, Valentino and numerous others.

NEWS: Christina Ricci is engaged to James Heergarden

It's just dreamy!

She wears lovely shades of white, ivory and pale pink, decorated with ladylike details including lace and chiffon—all terrifically offset by wild and unruly hair, subtly smoky eye makeup and flawless porcelain skin.

In short, it's positively breathtaking and a nod towards Ricci's evolution into adulthood.

The vibe of the entire editorial spread is decidedly sweet and sophisticated with an unexpected touch of darkness that speaks to Ricci's matured career, personal style and candid disposition on life.

"I find people treat me more seriously if I'm well-dressed and put together," she said candidly.

With increased confidence from an impressively long career in Hollywood spanning nearly 25 years now, Ricci has certainly grown up quickly in the spotlight and is no stranger to working on set.

And now, she's tackling a brand new role: bride-to-be.

That's right, the 33-year-old brunette beauty is currently engaged to fiancé James Heergarden, who she met while filming Pan Am two years ago, and is busy planning her wedding ahead.

"I just want everyone to have a nice time and to feel happy. I could have easily gone the other way, where I was controlling every detail, but it's so unpleasant to be like that. If the flowers aren't exactly the right shade, then so be it," she says mildly in the interview.

As for her wedding gown, Ricci remains tight-lipped. ""I'm still waiting from the confirmation from the designer that I can announce that. A reporter asked me about it and I said I was looking at sketches. Somehow that ended up as 'Christina's designing the dress,' which I have no intention of doing."

Whatever she'll wear, we know she look simply beautiful!
