Should ABC change the show's title from All My Children to All My Zircons"? For her 24-year stint as Erica Kane, Lucci, 45, deserves her crown as the queen of the soaps. But the rest of her wardrobe is a little too royal. She dresses, says TV Guide columnist Michael Logan, like a cross between "a fairy-tale princess and a Miss America contestant." The gravity-defying heels, huge baubles and important hair make her look more like a doll sold on QVC than a millionaire who markets hair-care products on the channel. This year she wasn't even nominated for an Emmy. Could it be the clothes?
