I feel oddly torn when it comes to Christina Hendricks. I actually like her a lot, as an actress and as a woman who doesn't look necessarily like every other woman in Hollywood. But I also find it hard to defend her when she wears outrageously unflattering clothing to events. This is a woman who actually looks really good without makeup and in casual clothing such as jeans and simple button down blouses. So what gives with the matronly dresses and overblown makeup on so many red carpets?
Christina took part in an event held by the people over at Variety, where they got together several actresses from shows that everyone holds dear (others at the same event including Michelle Monaghan, Anna Gunn, Molly Parker, Bellamy Young and that woman who looks as if she's a complete blast to hang out with - Lena Heady) and for once the conservative outfit that she wore didn't make her look like someone's Nana. The makeup was soft and lovely and the pictures that were taken prior to the sit down make Hendricks look like the classic vamp that we're all partial to.
