Christina Hendricks
Photos

These Christina Hendricks photos are part of an analysis of her fashion choices and style. She has exploded into our collective consciousness in recent years due to her role as Joan Harris in Mad Men and become the most recent poster girl for celebrity breasts.

A woman who is admired by many, particularly those who are fed up with the parade of anorexic sticks paraded in front of us in movies, TV and magazines as the supposed ideal for beauty. 

Christina Hendricks was described by the up-market English newspaper, The Daily Telegraph, as 'voluptuous, down to earth and talented' and I think that sums her up better than any of the many column inches devoted to her.

On this page I will go discuss:

  • The poor dress neckline choices
  • The famous Christina Hendricks breasts
  • Lots of Christina Hendricks photos of good neckline choices / fabulous looks

Let's face it, you cannot have a section dedicated to celebrity breasts and not feature the curvy Miss H but it is her style and clothing choices I am interested in.



A Fashion Disaster

It is interesting to read she apparently once called herself a fashion disaster and admits to having trouble choosing what to wear without a stylist to guide her. She is happiest in what she terms 'casual and comfy'. 

However, the really key thing she said was that she preferred to be a bit more covered up than Joan. "I have always believed that is a sophisticated and sexy look."

That I think is the primary mistake Miss Hendricks makes. It may be an influence from the 1950's style of the show but she often wears neck styles that do not suit big busted women; high neck dresses, crewneck and boat necks.

Christina Hendricks Photos In High
Neck Dresses

Tight and shiny, anyone would think she wanted people to admire her chest
High neck dresses means a great swathe of material with nothing to break up the chest
Shiny materials attract the light and hence the eye. Remember celebs want the attention, do you?
A high neck with no break has little to distract the eye from that chest

Now I am not saying that these Christina Hendricks photos do not look nice, she is after all a very good looking woman; but a high neckline style is generally not a good look for a big busted woman. There is a wide swathe of material with little break and the overall effect, is wide.

Other Negatives:

  • Satin dresses and / or silk tops are generally not a idea as they attract  light to the point, which attracts the eye, to the point which sticks out most.
  • the sleeve length on the dress on the left falls too close to the line of the bust, which draws the eye across it.
  • the gathered neckline (bottom right above) is generally a look to avoid. The creases suggest a garment which is straining at the leash due to the boobs.

Positives:

  • the belts. Note how she wears at belt on the top two dresses to help her cinch in that waist to accentuate her gorgeous hourglass figure.
  • the wide emphasised shoulder on the purple dress. Wide shoulders help to balance out big hips which is something many hourglass and pear shaped women are keen to do.
  • the sleeve length on the lower two dresses is perfect. Nowhere near the bustline so it does not highlight her boobs.
  • I have concentrated on the top half but she has great legs and always wears modest styles, just above or below the knee which look good on her. 


Christina Hendricks Breasts

Well there is no make any bones about it, these are big boobs and she has no qualms about proving it
Up and at 'em!

Apologies for the sub-heading, it is not really my style but nothing sums it up better. On a regular basis the Christina Hendricks breasts have been put out on display which is big part of why she will always feature in any poll or discussion of celebrity breasts.

As all big busted woman can attest, there is no doubt she knows exactly what she is doing, so there can be no complaints that people are staring at her chest.

We are told her assets are all her own but we also know that you certainly get those breast shapes from implants and that it is not normally the shape of natural breasts. If natural, she can only have achieved that shape by wearing a bra with a cup size (or two) too small or, she has inserted something into the cups at the bottom.

Hey, I am not knocking her. If she wants attention, she certainly has the features to do it and she has worked hard for her place in the pantheon so I certainly do not begrudge her. I would also point out that she is a Hollywood actress and she needs to fight tooth and nail, or is that whalebone and pins, to be in the paparazzi's lenses.

It is a matter of choice for any busty woman. I just would not advise it as a look unless they too want a lot of attention.

Looking Good

I am not trying to be negative about this lady as I do like her, as I will explain (further below) so I am pleased to show her wearing flattering neckline styles that do suit her. Whilst she certainly geta attention in the outfits above I think she looks so, so much better in the more sedate dresses below.

Now this is a lovely style for Christina Hendricks, a scoop neck with a lot of flesh on show, all modest!
Another excellent neckline for Christina Hendricks, a deep V coupled with a pattern to distract the eye

In these Christina Hendricks photos she wears a lovely Grecian style dress with a square neckline, although the straps have slipped a little.

On the right a classic V neckline which is actually it's little sister, a surplice neckline. Both these styles suit a large bust and you will note how, in either picture, her magnificent bust suddenly does not look massive.

Sexy or Sensual?

Here are some Christina Hendricks photos where I think she looks so much better. I accept that I maybe a bit of a prude but I think sensual is better than 'sexy'. Maybe it is just my age showing....

V Necks

Some lower cut than others...

Whilst I am primarily talking about necklines, it is always nice to see the entire outfit. So....

It is amazing the difference it makes with a narrow as opposed to a wide V.

Diamond Necklines

Christina Hendricks Photos - Other Necklines

Here Miss Hendricks sizzles in necklines that suit her. A classic V neckline and a Diamond neckline. Again you can tell that the famous Christina Hendricks breasts look far more modest when wearing a style that suits a woman with large boobs. Obviously wearing black on the top half, or black all over, certainly helps her cause.

This also demonstrates the difference between sexy and sensuous. She looks sensuous. She cannot help the media blabbering away about celebrity breasts and describing her as sexy but actually she does not usually promote a typical 'sexy' style with short skirts and the pouting come hither looks of the starlet.

Usually Christina Hendricks looks demure. Even though there is a lot of flesh on show, this look is still sensuous hinting at further charms but not flaunting them.

Her thoughts that being a "bit more covered up" is a "sophisticated look" maybe true; but it is nowhere near as effective for her as the classic flattering necklines for busty women. As you peruse the Christina Hendricks photos across this page, I hope you can see the difference.

Why Do I Like Miss H So Much?

That is a great laugh
You would have to have a big sense of humour to put a hat like that on

I have never met any Hollywood 'star' but I think I would like Christina Hendricks. It is always difficult to sort the wheat from the chaff of celebrity news and gossip but there are little snippets I have read which warm me towards her.

  • She has an English father and I like the fact that she has applied for and kept her American / English dual citizenship. It is good to be proud of your roots.
  • I like her face when she laughs. No prissy girly chuckle. A big wide mouthed, head back guffaw of the unself-conscious, open, genuinely amused. Possibly a remnant of her mid-Western background. This is a woman who would be good company.
  • I like that she is prepared to put on a daft hat. It is an example of her self deprecation. There are many actresses who will not be seen without a hair out of place, let alone in any manner that may be deemed silly. Not our Christina. 
I do not know why Christina Hendricks does not wear glasses out in public more, she sizzles.
Christina's other half. No chisel jawed toy boy for this gal.
  • She wears glasses and albeit occasionally goes out publicly in them.
  • I like the fact that she has and can play an accordian. It is an unsexy, unfashionable instrument but one which smacks of old fashioned sing songs and friendly get togethers around a fire.
  • This adoption and willingness to stand by the unusual and / or unpopular seems to be a feature of her life. At school she was a Goth and dyed her hair various colours. Unsurprisingly this was a group that was deemed socially down market and the catty remarks and criticism made her school life unhappy but she dug her heels in and stood up for her values
  • She apparently took the Mad Men part when her Agency advised against it. They parted company with her shortly after. This again typifies her determination to do what feels right.
  • Finally her husband, Geofrey Arend. One of those people that struggles to look tidy and seems perpetually uncomfortable in smart clothes. Not for Christina any chisel jawed matinee idol. No male eye candy to dangle on her arm and 'complete the look'. This is a gal that does her own thing and she liked the disorganised, intellectual charm of Arend and that was that.

I like Christina and would love to meet her, so Miss H, next time you are in England, look me up and we can get together for a coffee and a talk about style.

I hope you enjoyed these Christina Hendricks photos. However much one tries to explain a look, nothing does it better than a picture. You now have a choice:



Did you like this page, did you learn something, maybe it reinforced you own views? I want to give as much (hopefully helpful) advice to the busty sisterhood as I can.

Please remember, we are all different. You may like to wear certain clothes and styles which I am suggesting that you should not. That is your absolute right. Do what makes you feel good. This site undeniably goes for the more modest approach because I feel all busty ladies already know how to be more racy if they wish.

It would really help me improve the site profile if you would click the Facebook 'Like' button. Pretty please! Susan
