Christina Hendricks, with her fiery red hair, porcelain skin and curvy figure, is a unique, unconventional beauty. The ‘Mad Men’ star dresses to play up her hourglass shape and often chooses attire in slimming, figure flattering black. She loves L’Wren Scott’s designs, too!

Her style is slightly retro and semi-vintage, but she almost always looks polished and put together.

This black dress with a cape and hair clip are her take on ’50s chic. You’ll see as you scroll down that the dress she wore underneath the cap wasn’t her best choice. Thankfully, the coat cover and accessories saved he outfit as a whole.

When she doesn’t provide enough support for her girls, like with this sapphire dress, things go downhill. Literally.

What’s Right:

Hendricks’ Badgley Mischka LBD with a nipped waist flattered her full figure.

The devil was in the details in this youthful LBD. The hints of skin made it sexy.

The ‘Mad Men’ star’s lacy, pencil-shaped Dolce & Gabbana frock was another knock-it-outta-the-park choice. It was so slimming on her. Fashion is not a playground reserved for skinny girls, and Miss Hendricks proves that you can have style no matter your size.

Hendricks donned a black Christina Siriano dress for the 2013 Emmys. The Old Hollywood glam presentation worked for her, from her hair to the fabric.

This long-sleeved, high collar, black leather Hugo Boss dress is somewhat polarizing but we think she owned it. Plus, we loved the mirrored point at the toe of her heels.

What’s Wrong:

Super casual is fine but when the fabric is so loose and flowy, it’s not always shaping.

We applaud Hendricks for stepping away from her beloved black to go with a floral print, but this shapeless dress was sack-like on her. It also hit too far below the knee.

This isn’t too dissimilar to other LBDs that Hendricks has worn, only she was busting out of the top of this L’Wren Scott number. That means it was way too tight.

How to Fix It:

She can do color! This jungle green L’Wren Scott dress was clingy in all the right places. Hendricks was a vision.

Again, color is not something Hendricks seems to prefer, but she doesn’t sidestep it entirely. This maroon dress, however, would have benefitted from a little more support up top.

When she does don black, Hendricks rarely missteps. This shiny, straight Ports 1961 dress was simple and stunning, especially since it contrasted with her porcelain skin and ember locks.

The sexy school marm thing works for her, as does that whole ’50s voluptuous goddess thing!
