Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks appears on the cover of Lucky magazine’s August 2011 issue, wearing a beige Donna Karan dress. Inside, she discusses dressing for her body, her least favorite piece, and red carpet style.
On dressing for her body: “I have to be careful about my proportions and keep it simple. What works for me is structure and something that shows my waist.”
On her last favorite piece: “It’s really hard to find a bathing suit if you have breasts. You either get smooshed down or there’s no support. My husband and I have sketched out designs.”
On red carpet style: “I think that at the award shows people are so scared because the magazines are so judgmental and critical—it’s like you have to wear a solid color, and your hair has to be up, and it has to be strapless, and you can’t wear this, and you can’t wear prints—because somebody will say something mean about you. And it’s too bad because then the world doesn’t get to see what all of these amazing fashion designers are creating. They are doing beautiful things that most people never get to see.”
