Christina Hendricks vs Hollywood

{via Matt Sayles}

Who here is a Mad Men fan?! I am, I am!

I love the era, the ego, the fashion and style. And I love Joan, played by the luscious Christina Hendricks. She is such a doll on screen and off, and yet Hollywood is giving her some trouble when it comes to her weight.

At 5'8 and a size 14, not a single designer will loan her a dress for events such as the Emmys (where Mad Men won big on Sunday evening). Granted, she's not a "perfect" size 2, but come on- who would not want to have Christina Hendricks model their designs?

Blackbird Design House sure does! This lucky Etsy shop, and friend of the actress, used Hendricks to model their latest scarves. This makes me love the actress and Etsy even more so!

  1. She's got a lovely figure and these designers should be ashamed :(

  2. What the heck? Woman of her size want to outfit themselves in designer clothes as well. And there is nothing wrong with her size. Thanks for bringing this up. I had no idea! Love Mad Men!

  3. I love her. As I recall, she said she felt great after putting on 15 pounds for the role...I remember hearing her say this about the designers. Their loss. In a time when designers are in such financial stress (they are no matter what you read/hear), you'd think they'd be flocking to her. It's just bad business.

    I wouldn't miss Mad Men...I finally have high-speed & bought an iTunes pass. Fabulous.

  4. She is soo beautiful -- more so than many of the size 2 stars! And, I would have never guessed she was a size 14. She looks natural, not overweight!
