Christina Hendricks: Mad About Glamour

Mad Men starlet Christina Hendricks set the bar when she first appeared in the BBC show set in New York City in the 1960’s. The plus size actress has since graced the covers of highly regarded magazines all over the world for being an aspiration to women due to her curvy figure and go-getting attitude.

Her achievements include E.R., Without A Trace and various other American television series. She also featured along side Carey Mulligan and The Notebook star slash Hollywood hottie, Ryan Gosling, in Drive which was released earlier this year.

Esquire magazine named her the sexiest woman in the world and we definitely understand why. Her character Joan Holloway in Mad Men is stunning, always beautifully dressed and full of sass.

Her most recent achievement though is being the cover star of UK Glamour Magazine, which supports women in all aspects of their life.

The volumptuous cover star has changed the way fashion forward people think, with Vivienne Westwood describing her as the embodiment of beauty, and the British Minister of Equalities  saying “Christina Hendricks is absolutely fabulous… We need more of these role models. There is such a sensation when there is a curvy role model. It shouldn’t be so unusual.”

But this wonder woman prefers for people to praise her for her skills as an actor and her career rather than the way she looks.

As her career has flourished over the past ten years, Miss Hendricks has created a huge fan base and her cultural influence has created a healthier attitude to womens shapes in fashion.

Hendricks role as Joan Holloway in Mad Men, as the office manager of Advertising Agency Sterling Cooper, where she maintains the focus as ‘Queen Bee’ and by the last season it becomes clear that the office cannot manage without her.

Christina’s character copes with so many issues throughout the five seasons, including; infidelities, being a woman in a male orientated world, becoming a housewife, and pregnancy, proving that Christina Hendricks is an extremely talented actress.

The fiery haired heroine has made us think twice about beauty in the fashion industry, and this chic woman’s taste in fashion could only help further this opinion.

The actress wears outfits to events which make us squeal with joy. Every dress enhances her assets and hugs her hourglass figure in all the right places. She always wears cuts that look amazing and colours that make her pale skin tone glow.

Christina, we salute you as being the heroine of the red-carpet!
