In a mere three days, Peggy Olson, Betty
Draper Francis, Joan Harris, and the new Mrs. Draper will be back on the small screen for a brand new season of Mad Men. Suffice it to say we are VERY excited. Magazine editors have also fallen hard for the show’s leading ladies and January Jones, Christina Hendricks, Elisabeth Moss, and, as of last season, Jessica Paré have been newsstand fixtures ever since the show hit the airwaves. In the spirit of nostalgia, we’re taking a look back at their best shoots, and in the spirit of competition (of which there’s certainly no shortage on the show), we want to know whose you like best.
Marion Cotillard wasn’t the only one who struck a pose for the flashbulbs last night, even if she was the only one who did so in fresh-off-the-runway Christian Dior.
Despite last night’s wintry mix in New York City, stars like Keira Knightley and Olivia Wilde came out for the premiere of Anna Karenina. Of course, they were bundled up for the most part, but looked cute nonetheless. It was a different story out in California and Australia where celebs like Kerri Washington, Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks, and Mena Suvari showed off some skin on the red carpet. Let’s dissect the looks, shall we?
For better or for worse, the bulk of profiles we’ve read on the topic of Christina Hendricks throw in a mention or two of her enviably curvaceous figure. So we aren’t entirely surprised that Kate Waterhouse, fashion editor for Australia’s Sun-Herald, asked the actress about being an “inspiration to full-figured women” during their interview, but we’re not particularly impressed with her ingenuity either. Hendricks, as it turns out, was even less impressed.
Jennifer Lawrence, Christina Hendricks, Kerry Washington, and more stars attended the Hollywood Foreign Press Association‘s Installation Luncheon in California yesterday. Everyone got all gussied up for the event, and Katniss took the opportunity to show off her assets.
Sure, awards were given out at the Broadcast Television Journalists Association‘s Critics’ Choice Awards in California last night. But really, the most important accolades are the ones we’re giving out for being best (and worst) dressed on the red carpet.
We thought we were done with our awesome (if somewhat exhausting!) Emmy red carpet coverage, when we realized we’d inadvertently forgotten to highlight three of our favorite style stars: Christina Hendricks, Elisabeth Moss, and Kiernan Shipka, all of whom work on Mad Men and all of whom wore spectacularly stunning dresses.
The Met Gala exists for pretty much one reason and one reason only: capital-F Fashion. (And don’t let the name Costume Institute confuse you — costume is just an academic term for clothing.) While some of last night’s looks made our jaws drop in a really good way, others were hideous, boring, and/or inappropriate.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything out of Christina Hendricks. She wasn’t at the Oscars, she wasn’t at Fashion Week, and she hasn’t been in any scandals that have gotten headlines all over the world. Hendricks might have been resting up to prepare for her new role as the face of Vivienne Westwood‘s new line of palladium jewelry, called Get A Life.
We’ll go first: we absolutely loved Christina Hendricks‘ black sequined wrap dress by L’Wren Scott. Hendricks likened the look to a smoking jacket — and kudos to her! Besides being incredibly flattering, we thought, how deliciously comfortable! That said, we knew it was bound to be a controversial look — most of Hendricks’ red carpet ensembles are — which begs the question: what did you think?
We may have been preoccupied with the theatrical shoulder flourish on Christina Hendricks‘s red Romona Keveza gown at the Golden Globes, but the real drama had to do with her borrowed Chopard jewels. At some point during her red carpet tour of duty, Hendricks lost one of the two bracelets she wore to the awards. The cost of the piece? $850,000. Yikes.
Even though the fashion and celebrity whirlwind known as The Golden Globes is just a sparkling memory in the Internet’s eye, we know that there are still a fair few people who haven’t had the chance to feast their eyes on the glorious bounty of pinks, greens and sequins that dominated the award shoe’s red carpet yet. And to make it easy for you to dive right in, we’ve collected all of our Golden Globes coverage into one post.
Christina Hendricks has done wonderful things for curvy girls and redheads, but what do you make of her scarlet Romona Keveza one-shoulder gown? We are loving the color, but are on the fence about the shoulder decoration.
Well, how’s this for a Thursday afternoon treat? Playboy, via their trivia-laden Twitter account, has just released some vintage-ish images of Mad Men star and all-around lady icon Christina Hendricks from their July 1999 issue.
While those behind and in front of the camera have expressed concern over the prevalence of extreme Photoshopping both in editorial spreads and advertisements, photo retouching is here to stay. Getting rid of blemishes or correcting light balance isn’t a huge deal, but many magazines and advertisers use their Photoshop tools a bit too liberally. As such, we’ve put together a list of this year’s top 10 worst Photoshop offenses.
There’s nothing like a good story — and the tale Christina Hendricks told Harper’s Bazaar about her red hair inspiring Karen Elson‘s now signature ‘do certainly takes the cake. But the icing (and the cherry) is that Ms. Elson is backing her up!
The cast of Mad Men celebrated the season four finale in style on Thursday night at the iconic 21 Club in New York City. And just like on the show, the cast looked fab, though
Betty Draper January Jones was notably missing (again.) Who was your favorite?
Terry Richardson just keeps getting work! Despite all those pesky sexual harassment allegations, Terry just keeps going and going. His latest subject? Curvy Christina Hendricks for Harper’s Bazaar. While the photos are awesome, our favorite part is when Hendricks tells the interviewer that Karen Elson totally stole her signature red ‘do.
It’s official. The printed gown Christina Hendricks‘ wore to Wednesday’s premiere of her husband’s film, Devil, is the most beautiful thing we’ve seen her wear, well, ever.
We love Christina Hendricks. We love her hair, her face, her character Joan on Mad Men, her attitude, and, of course, her body. Which is why we can’t understand why anyone would choose to lop half of it off. And so, we present to you the latest edition of When Photoshop Strikes, in which we wonder: what happened to Christina Hendricks’ legs?
