The Curve


Christina Hendricks

photographed by James White for Esquire Russia, June 2010

"During the first season [of Mad Men], a woman came up to me at dinner and said, 'I just want to thank you -- watching you has made me proud of my body.' I thought, what an amazing thing for someone to say! To make anyone feel good about themselves makes me feel good."
Some of you may already know about my...ahem...appreciation for Mad Men's Christina Hendricks, but for those who are unfamiliar, suffices to say I'm rather obsessed with this hourglass beauty and what she's brought to Hollywood. She's positively divine.

Sweet quote indeed and she's beautiful! I've heard good things about Mad men, will definitely watch the series this summer. Currently I'm watching Dexter, do you like that or not? Can't wait for True Blood to begin! Have you seen the dresses from my last two posts?
What do you think I should do? (cut sleeves or just adjust a little bit)
Curious about your opinion and really need help!

Oh, I enjoy the female beauties in Mad Men so much, too - and their dresses are just gorgeous!

This woman is a Goddess. A pre Raphaelite masterpiece. She is indeed divine and I too cannot say enough nor get enough....sigh...

I have never watched 'Mad Men' I do not know why, possibly because I can't commit to a TV show. I should, I'm pretty sure I'd enjoy it and not just because of her 'grrr' factor!

Thanks for your opinion! I like the dress both ways too. I just shot some photos which I'll post today. as you will see the lower side of the dress is ok but the upper side is too big and needs adjustments in any case.

I actually only watch Dexter bc I'm waiting for TB but I like it very much, only sometimes it's getting too unrealistic he's getting away with everything but then again most of the time it's very thrilling.

Love that quote - But I can't help wondering, did we appreciate curvy women more as a society in the 60's?

She is such a beauty! I really want to start watching that show...

I love her body! Curves are really so much more sexy than a skeleton figure and I'm glad a fantastic lady like herself is inspiring others!

By the way, the vintage looking photos in my recent post were used with a vintage film canon from the 70s! I'm so glad you liked them. :)

I'm hearing good reviews about the series but hasn't have the urge to watch it, I must have a look again and thanks for giving this quote, it makes me feel a beautiful woman - skinny nor volouptous :)

I've got a post planned on her. I'm so obsessed with her. I've got a huge crush on Christina. She's so gorgeous with an incredible body.
