Good Girls star Christina Hendricks is well known for her striking figure, having turned heads for years on the small screen. The actress shared a recent photo of herself to her Instagram account, wearing a Vivienne Westwood dress as only she can. A classic floral print dress is accented with a small, tasteful necklace with the whole outfit highlighted by the Mad Men star’s signature red locks.

A British designer, Vivienne Westwood became famous for styling British punk band, The Sex Pistols, during the height of the 70’s Punk scene. Westwood’s designs were featured in the Sex and the City movie, specifically in the classic gown Carrie wears during her wedding to Mr. Big. Christina Hendricks was selected by the legendary designer herself to represent the “Get a Life” Palladium jewelry collection in 2011.

The award-winning actress has been working steadily in Hollywood ever since frequent guest star spots on ER and Firefly. Christina Hendricks broke out in 2007, when she first appeared as Office Manager Joan Halloway on AMC’s Mad Men. Frequently sharing the screen with Jon Hamm, Hendricks was capable of going toe-to-toe with one of Hollywood’s most handsome leading men, both in and out of character.

While Christina Hendricks received rave reviews and constant award nominations for her portrayal of Joan, the actress complained that almost everyone only wanted to talk about her body. Frequently, critics and fans would use the term “full-figured” to describe the actress, citing the red head as a throwback to the old Hollywood bodies of Marilyn Monroe and Veronica Lake. Undeterred, the actress took the opportunity to speak up about the inequality in Hollywood, working to carve out a more respected spot for women.

In 2014, she had the lead role for Ryan Gosling’s debut as a director in Lost River. 2018 saw the star go against type and play the matriarch of a family terrorized by killers in The Strangers: Prey at Night.

Christina Hendricks went through major changes in her personal life over the last few years, divorcing her husband, actor Geoffrey Arend in 2019 after ten-years of marriage. Two years later, the actress was linked to Good Girls camera operator George Bianchini, whom the actress is still dating and, according to her social media, recently took to Scotland.
